Who am I?
I am Trent Burch-Bowser, a graphic designer and story writer primarily out of hobby. I also go by the nickname Techno Koopa. I studied at Richland Community College in Dallas back in 2005 for an Associates Degree in Multimedia Web Design, though my goal was to learn graphic illustration programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator. I still use Illustrator for vector-based graphics, but now I use GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) instead of Photoshop.
In 2007, I began to write stories based on designs I created calling them Warring Factions: Alternate Timeline. It was a variation or retelling of events based on games I played in high school. Over the course of several years I created six stories based on that saga and posted them on DeviantArt. Since then, I began working on my current saga titled Warring Factions: The Novus Initium Saga. That Saga is currently complete, but I am now working on remaking my Alternate Timeline Saga with new characters, new designs, and improved story writing than before. I have now separated the Sagas below for easy reference.
Last thing to note, I do all of this for fun. I don't ask for money for any of these nor do I do commissions so please do not ask. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me below or follow me on social media. Thank you!
A Tale of Two Sagas
Warring Factions consists of two sagas from two different timelines.
The first saga is the Novus Initium Saga, set in a remote star cluster over 3400 years from now after the terraformed moon Luna is sucked through a mysterious wormhole taking its inhabitants to an unknown part of the universe. Humanity must come to terms with their new home, but they soon find out they are not the only residents of the star cluster.
The second saga is a remake of the Alternate Timeline series. In the year Galactic Era 72, the United Systems of the Federation have been at peace for over 20 years after the First Interstellar War that united several species including Humans against their common enemy. However, that peace comes to an end as their enemies have regrouped and learned to fight the mysterious technology the Federation used to defeat them in the first war. But where did this technology come from in the first place?
