Prologue - The Tree - Phical “Tallfawn” Achich-Gerare

July 9, 2017

Taking on new responsibilities is hard. Taking on new challenges is hard. Being prepared for what is to come is hard. However, many strive to break free from the bonds that hold them, and stride forward. Thinegullen, the Stone Barracks, does such things with ferocity and gusto. They defend those too weak to defend themselves and confront enemies on any front. However, when something appears in Thinegullen that none of them know how to handle, it make take one forest wanderer, a typical outcast for them, to rise above, break these bonds and venture forth to find a cure. On his return, Tallfawn will find that there is much more than his naming day waiting for him.

Prologue - The Stone - Far’ras al-Rahib

June 4, 2017

Curses, diseases, plagues, all used to quell our population. And however much we struggle, we are still eroded away in the end. Abdali, the village hidden in the sands has stood for so long. Independent and self sustaining, unyielding to the forces from outside, but when something small slips through, we will see how a simple intruder can disrupt the natural order. Ferras will find the source to this intrusion, and his father may find the answer for another.

Prologue - The Box - Owein Parnassus

March 17, 2017

There are many things hidden in the sands. Place a rock in an hour glass, watch time pass and grow stagnant. Place sand in an hour glass, watch it pass with abandon and slip away forever. Sand erodes, sand sustains. And for the denizen's of the Scendarian desert, it is a constant. When Owein returns from a trip out in the sands, he finds that the sand has flown away, and has revealed new revelations in his home town of Baelstrya.
