The History of Clown Town
In the days of old, the children of the stars, known as the fairies were beloved by the high celestials and threw lavish festivals to celebrate them. The high celestials, who were the stars in the sky, often took human form and traveled to Earth to sing and dance with their children. A small group of humans decorated their faces and put on lavish costumes to entertain the stars and longed to be adored by them, as the stars adored the fairies. These humans were scorned and became known as, the clowns. The clowns created their own sect that was separate from the villagers, grew in power and made an alliance with the fallen stars that had been cast out of the heavens. The clowns threw lavish parties of their own to entertain the high celestials but longed for magic and power that the fallen stars had shown them. War erupted between the high celestials and the fallen, which forced the clowns and fairies to be on opposing sides. The fairies fled to the planet Eucharon to escape the war but not all were able to make it safely when Epsilon came to power.
General Sharaya touched Duchess’ dark brown hair as she lay weak and dying on the cold stone floor of their jail cell. The dark star Epsilon Eridani finally succeeded in taking her star stone. Duchess has yet to learn that General Sharaya is her cousin and that she herself is Faree.
18 year old Duchess is a simple village girl that has no idea that she is at the center of the most epic war of the ages that is soon to come. Duchess tries desperately to escape her village upbringing and dreams of becoming a dancer in the famous Royal Clown Ballet. Duchess has not been told the truth about her royal fairy lineage and falls victim to a universal plot; conjured by the dark star Epsilon Eridani. The clowns easily ensnare Duchess by seducing her with the life she’s always dreamed of.
After Duchess escapes her kidnapper, she wakes up in the grandest room she has ever been in. When she gets up to look out of her window, she realizes that she is in the Grand Clown Plaza Hotel located in the center of Clown Town. King Clownington quickly learns of Duchess’ arrival to Clown Town and immediately plots with Epsilon on how to extract her star stone. Epsilon learned from killing many fairies that star stones must be freely given in order to retain their power and cannot be extracted under duress. King Clownington orders his son Jax to court Duchess and the entire clown family do all that they can to trick Duchess into sacrificing her stone.
Duchess falls in love with the king’s son but starts to grow suspicious when she tries to leave Clown Town and is not able to. General Sharaya sends Duchess a seemingly cryptic message about the clowns that Duchess fails to understand, until it’s too late. With the universe on the brink of a war that has the power to penetrate space and time, will Duchess become trapped by her hatred of the clowns or freed by her new found destiny?
The Adventure Continues…
Duchess looked over at the large purple gumdrop running beside her in despair. Her head wouldn’t stop pounding and sweat began to burn her eyes. I must be dreaming, she thought to herself. The sound of General Sharaya’s voice quickly reminded her that she was very much awake, but all Duchess could remember was lying on a hard cement floor in the dark dungeons of Clown Town. Even though Duchess finally finds out the truth about the nature of Jax and the clowns, one true friend comes to her rescue and the journey to Pearl City begins.
The celestials and fairies find themselves battling ancient dark forces more powerful than even the dark star Epsilon Eridani, that seek to unite the thirteen heavens under the dark deity, Iona Draconis. Mancai the sorcerer emerges from his dark exile and with the blessings of the lords of darkness, seeks to complete Epsilon’s mission of gathering the thirteen star scrolls and unlocking their power. Despite being subject to the oppression of the deylai and Martian forces, Measles finds a long-lost friend and travels the universe in search of the true meaning of loyalty.
Even though the Tanatoorian Pirate Captain Naman helps Measles and his new friend Popcorn navigate the troll fields, the clowns end up in the middle of the epic conflict between the immortal celestials and the dark stars. As the Queen of all stars Felanthiam Celenamis rides her great celestial dragon into battle, the fate of the heavens of light lies in the hands of a simple village girl, but a prophecy told by the dead souls of Lyanthra may snuff out the light in all thirteen realms of space and time. When the prophecy is fulfilled, and the ancient supreme sorceress Vangemtra rises from the dead, all beings of the thirteen heavens wonder if war between the heavenly realms will plunge their worlds into darkness forever.
