Homeworld and Heartworld

The Land of Skies

Advertisements

The four Lore of Arcana books are set largely on Valaris, a world isolated.

Although we do visit Ardosia, Thisseldrum and Pendulim, Valaris is homeworld and heartworld, a blue jewel in the fabric of bright space and time. One continent and thousands of islands make up the available land, a paradise of contrasts. From ice to desert, from high peak to rivers deep, from ocean to forest, Valaris is special.

No wonder, then, so many covet it.

Valaris’ moon is blue and the subject of much mythology

Politically, Valarians have a democratic SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT, and leaders are voted in every sixth year. Each town, city and community has a Mayor and a council. The Mayors elect one individual to run the country Рthe Electan Рand he or she has a ruling council. The ruling council writes into law new governance or repeals outdated ones. The law is upheld by a force of Lawmen Рthey go by different names at different times.

Valaris has a policy of FREEDOM OF RELIGION, and the following are the main players of both past and present:

Naturalists

Techno-cult

Followers of the Prophet Monchalar

Followers of the Deity Taranis

Order of Continuity

Various others have come and gone over time, and are footnotes in history, and others will come and go as time progresses.

An interesting world, with characters you will see yourself in … until the invaders arrive, and you realise all is definitely not as first appearances and insights reveal. Valaris is SPECIAL.
