Crypts and Scorpions

After ARCANA comes Lore of Reaume, and it starts with Saska facing death in The Kallanon Scales. Everything changes in this part of the saga; known friends die, unknown friends step forth, and the action moves to another world.

Luvanor/Valaris Time

We have discussed Valaris time HERE, but in Lore of Reaume much of the action takes place on Luvanor and time is different there. Below is an excerpt to give you some insight:

banner-1240822_640

Time did not run concurrent for Valaris and Luvanor. Where the season had just moved into the first month of winter for Valaris, the beginnings of spring was showing on Luvanor. In fact the dual spring on both worlds when Torrullin returned after a two thousand year absence was a rare event, a parallel that came around every seventy years or so, some years for spring, some for summer and some for winter. Autumn skipped the cycle due to the Valarian practice of shortening their winter and summer seasons by half a moon to realign the calendar to the stars. The fact that it was spring for both worlds caused Teighlar to remark to a number of his Senlu that the Enchanter would naturally choose an auspicious time to reappear.

The days were different also. Where Valaris counted out 22.4 hours, Luvanor held to 24.2 hours, which effectively meant morning on Valaris could be midday or dusk on Grinwallin’s mountain, or some other time in the various time zones of that world. It was not a strange concept at all – no two worlds were exactly alike – but it did make for surprise, particularly as few kept track, an intricacy limited to academics and fanatics who loved to fill their minds with the many facts and figures it entailed.

 

The Waiting One Prophecy

This is the telling of a time when all may change, for in the window to the future of all races has been seen the coming of a Darkness that has been and will be again, and it will be embodied as a threesome, two indivisible and two indivisible, for a time. Two will inhabit the same skin and be sentient and two will be of identical genesis, and one will be common to each kind. Do not be fooled, all is not lost, for Darkness cannot exist without lamps to triumph over, and if all things are in place new hope will come in the form of the Catalyst, he who is host to another not of the genesis, and that hope will not only release the Darkness, but also the Waiting One.

Dragons Everywhere!

Facebook Pages are great to create Galleries! We have breezed through SANCTUM’s (just click GALLERIES in the sidebar to scroll through again!) and now it’s REAUME’s turn.

Kicking off with Dragons Everywhere!

The first volume – The Kallanon Scales – definitely gives you a clue there are dragons, but all is not what it seems. On the one hand there is Neolone and on the other Abdiah, and it is quite the battle.
