The Grey Heir

Rayne’s world was the market district. He knew the bustling streets and the back alleys. He knew all the shop keepers by name and his best friend ran the street thieves. His finger was on the pulse of the city and he knew he’d never leave...

That is, until the palm of his right hand turned invisible, leaving his fingers floating in the air! Afraid that he has been cursed, Rayne turns to The Order of Trel for answers. They say that Rayne has a great destiny, but to fulfill that destiny (and get rid of the curse) he must leave his beloved city and travel across the entire realm of Waerdal...tomorrow.

Now Rayne must journey into the unknown. He must face magicians, assassins, and the truth about a world he thought he knew. Ultimately, he must answer the question: is it better to fight for those who offer freedom, or those who offer safety and peace?

Nothing but NaNoWriMo Will Happen in November!

I meant to post this at the beginning of the month, but then didn’t.

If you’re wondering why no new essays have appeared, it’s because I am participating in National Novel Writing Month, which is eating up all my time and energy!

Therefore, our regularly scheduled essays will resume in December.

Have a great Thanksgiving everybody!

Faction Profile: The Order of Trel

Power base: pervasive
Influence: tyrannical
Religious views: absolute
Heresy: somewhat discouraged.

Since the Asyrdream Empire fell to Aaron Lightbringer’s rebellion 200 years ago, The Order of Trel has slowly gained strength and influence. Now, despite the fact that there are many other religious orders active in the world, The Order of Trel is simply called “the Order.”

This is something the Order of Trel is quite proud of: they represent Treleon, who is the Lord of Light, lions, truth and justice, and their mission is to bring Order to Waerdal’s warring principalities. In this mission they have been astonishingly successful. Four of the nine major principalities are now governed by the Order, though the respective princes are still nominally in charge.

Few fully understand how the Order has managed their take over so successfully, though many are concerned by their unstoppable advance and their inflexible ideology.

Whatever you think of them, however, there can be little doubt that the Order will play a major role in shaping the future of Waerdal.
