Compilation – Volume 3: The Book of Ages

This is the official page for the progress of our third compilation! It will most probably be an all digital release with around 17 tracks based around a time-traveller theme. It's all community based and we all contribute what we can to make this happen. Expect things to change here, currently it's all in a "Work in progress" state.

Story

The Sodality of the Star is a secret society of the ancient island civilization of Akrotiri. The Sodality devoted to the protection of a powerful jewel, the Sacred Star. When a cataclysmic earthquake devastates the island, members of the society flee in ships, but the jewel is hidden or lost. Throughout the ages of the world, descendants of the original membership seek to recover the jewel for power, faith or riches. But the ancient High Priestess of Akrotiri, Kitane, predicted at the end of her civilization that the Star would not be found until the world was remade in fire and water.

What we need

This is what we need as of now:

How?

We'll probably make a digital download and either give it away for free or sell it through Bandcamp or similar. Currently it's a non-profit fan/community project for anyone so no money will essentially make it to the contributors. But we will hopefully provide an excellent way to get your work spread over the world. So think "promotional payment" for starters and any money that could trickle down to indiviuals a big bonus, so don't quit your day job just yet :P
