Adam gets the first word

Adam uses the alefbet to dominate the world.

Meet Adam. You might’ve heard of him before. As in the Bible, Adam is the first man, and Ha-Shem creates him and assigns him to exercise global dominion, especially by naming the world’s creatures.

However, because the world of Eretz is shaped by linguistics, the “Milhamah” Adam differs from the biblical account in several ways, based on the roots in the אדם shoresh family.

For example, Adam is not only made from the dust of the earth. Based on the אדם shoresh root, his body also continues to take on elements of clay, soil and stone, and he has the ability to manipulate earth. The same root gives him the power to heat his body to red-hot temperatures — hence his ability to wear fire around his waist for stylistic modesty!

He has other powers too. In the “Milhamah” world, Adam was the first Evaluator of Names, a title that our protagonist Shem ‘Etzem strives to live up to. The אמד shoresh gives Adam his evaluation powers, which are similar to Shem’s in the latter’s holy form. When Adam is evaluating targets, his eyes shine like the Odem ruby he wears around his neck, and his vision has jewel-like clarity to determine the true nature of things.

Lastly, gaining dominion of Eretz has made Adam very rich, thanks to the מאד shoresh root. And that root also gives him the power to multiply his strength by many times.

So yeah, Adam is OP. His role in “Milhamah” may be a bit of a mystery, but the comic and franchise will explain more in the months and years to come!

Comic update

I’ve been hard at work making a bunch of new characters who will be revealed in the next comic update. I’ll preview each one here as I work on them, hopefully one per week. While an actual comic update for at least four to six weeks, I’ll continue to add more content in the weeks ahead. It’ll be worth the wait!
