Hey there, I represent a group called Rokumanga (think of it as the CLAMP group or most of the artist writer pairings that work under one name). We are working to establish a reader base so if you can support us it would be greatly appreciated.
You can check the manga out at www.rokumanga.com
All Comments and Critiques can be posted here.
Here is the profile of the main characters for the prologue:
Here is the official cover of the manga, pages of the prologue will be uploaded soon.

From what I see, your art ain't half bad and I'm impressed by the effort behind the preview pages you're teasing us with up there. Well done!
Now, it's probably unfair of me to say all this since you guys haven't even put up a full chapter yet, but I'm personally not all that excited about Chains of Fate. From reading the brief synopsis, I got the impression of 'two wandering warriors helping random people out and will eventually face a great evil' which sounds rather... cliché. There's nothing there that tells me how your story will stand out from the rest. Despite that, it's not a bad thing if you're sticking to the basics, especially since this is your first project. It's all in the execution, as they say. By the time your chapter comes out, I might even be kicking myself in the teeth for saying all this because you guys really know what you're doing.
One last thing I'm concerned with atm is the many side stories you're all planning. I worry that the side stories might overtake the main story, which is kind of a bad thing since it's supposed the main story that holds everything together. It might even be that the side stories become more interesting than the main story.
Here's to hoping that your actual work will put all these irrelevant fears to rest.
Things to clarify:
-Side stories will be made in a much later point of the Manga.
-We understand that the plot synopsis is rather vague and we plan to rewrite it to make it far more attractive and interesting.
The upcoming update will include an updated synopsis and also a new description of another country, Pyong Sool.
Stay tuned for the latest updates!
Update for today:
-Added genre and better plot synopsis
-Added new country description, Pyong Sool

I enjoyed the art... Like TitaniumChloride said the drawings from the preview are really descriptive saying, that picture wise it will be very good to see. I am wondering though if they will just travel the world fighting random guys, throwing the Main Villain and the point of the story here and there until they finally meet up. I can understand some random fights in the beginning and a few here and there later on, but if a story is meant to show us what the story is meant to be, fights directly related to the villain have to take most of the story... like bleach, it started out really good and interesting, but after so many meaningless fights it takes a toll making it hard to keep viewing/reading... I mean loyal readers will keep reading/viewing until it gets good again, but why do it in the first place. Some very good mangas have been short. It's better to have something short and sweet than long and unsatisfying. Neon Genesis Evangelion was short, but a very fulfilling manga. I wrote a lot, sorry. I hope you don't think I'm trying to discourage you, just think the story through to make it the best it can because I really think it could be something great. Well, good luck and I hope to see more.

Damn that artwork is nice but they don't really look 7 or 8 from the concepts you showed us. Again with the main storyline it does sound a bit empty and cliché but i have yet to see your updates. I definitely see potential here especially with the artwork as you have shown you can already work it into a manga format, Keep going at it! (PS; i wish i could draw like you guys!)

i think it is wonderful and original, your artwork is really good, i guess its cause your older than me. the plot seems good and everything looks really carefuly planned and thought out. keep going and rech for the manga stars!!1
Yes, I agree, the art is excellent.
This can be interesing, but ...orginal? I dont think so...or...Im just wrong xD I see two swordsmans like white tiger and black dragon yin yang one is optimist and secound is pessimist... but what we can do to make this more interesing...er....? I feel this is boring for now... ;p I think this will be interesing but we have many swordsman' story for now... boring, boring boring xD
