    And It Is beyond beyond And it is beyond words And It spoke to me and i listened and you must now listen as well This you are bound to as i was And i shall feel no sympathies nor hold prejudice, and you shall come down with me here Down below This is not truth i heard when i pressed my ear against the wall beyond the darkness Some truths that are not truths melt like a musical flame beyond, the words sting your bones and soul Beyond Beyond, Beyond what eyes can see and far beyond that Our...
  2. Rirahmat Aybasi Ban Jafa Al Lanah

    Rirahmat Aybasi Ban Jafa Al Lanah, commonly referred to merely by his shortened name “Rihrahm”, was a legendary and mythical prophet, warrior, and hero of the Halas people of northern Aeophora. Born in the desert outpost of Osahia along the amber road to Umussia from the Akarian Empire, it is said that Rihram was born the lowly son of a breadmaker in the small dry sandy town, although even stating this can be seen as an act of great offense to some. For going back, even Rihrams birth is...

    the beast turned towards Firent, meeting eyes with him yet again as even as the fel creature towered over him in the distance.

His heart was steeled, he was prepared now to meet his fate, but if this bastard had taken his friends he was going to make sure it died with him, he wouldn't...

Overhead, the group could faintly see her, the object of their shared obsession, the goal that had driven them on this mad journey across the north, the Wyvern. Firent had...
  5. The Tale of Anok, Part 2: The Northbound Road

    Four Years after, in the taverns and places of congregation in Ryav, Woym, and Laklund, Anok would silently make his name known, and make his intentions clear, he would track and kill this Wyvern, like his childhood hero Kain Arcwin.

Moltencrag had been the only of the great Father Wyverns to survive past the breaking of...
  6. The Tale of Anok, Part 1: The StormWinds

    The Tale of Anok Dragodd Anok Dragodd would have certainly lived a very ordinary life had destiny not blown its way in, carried by dark wings.

  15. King Verrim the Good

    Alphim the Cold was the catalyst, the first man to truly begin the rise of Gimson as the predominant power on Aphal, seizing power after the death of his brother Davin through sheer force of will.

There had been others like...
