In Extremis

In Extremis (also InEx or NX) is a high fantasy series developed and published by Skeli’n Studios and created by Mr. Skeli’n (Mikkel Christensen). The stories presented in literature are accompanied by artwork and music, all created by Mr. Skeli’n (unless otherwise noted).

Combination of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Steampunk, and Anachronistic elements

Combining a high-fantasy core with elements of sci-fi oddly discovered before modern technological advancements makes for a setting that feels both antiquated and advanced, with a blend of mysticism. This setting organically develops unique characters capable of having captivating stories while still being relatable.

Emphasis on characters having to make tough choices

“Every character wants something, even if it is only a glass of water.” – Kurt Vonnegut

Carefully guiding characters in and out of messes that are often their own creation builds a bond with the reader that feels authentic and builds complex characters without dealing with good and evil as a binary.

Books that immerse the reader but leave mysteries around the universe

The stories of In Extremis are told through plot-arcs, each of which may not contain all the stories told for any particular character, enticing the reader to come back for more as it’s written.


Literature supplanted and augmented by aural and visual arts

Some stories are told through literature alone, but many stories are told with the aid of artwork and music. All planned books have their own soundtrack, and many pieces of art and music stand on their own as well.
