Like Archmage before me, I'm taking the liberty of posting the "About" topic. I am doing this in the hopes of prodding Raistlin into urrying up and starting the story. I'm very impatient.
*prod prod*
Hopefully this story will be equal to or greater than its predecessors.

Here is the traditional register of the main characters and (some of) their traits. Also included in a glossary of obscure words and phrases.

Character List

House Magisray

Ellaria Valmora-Magisray


A strong individual, Ella is overlooked by the rest of the family. In fact, the general public seems quite willing to forget that the fabled Golden Boy even has a sister. Buried in her brother's shadow, the princess rarely complains - trying to run away as a child didn't work quite as well as she planned. Since then, she's done her best to help Laur in his studies, learning tibits along the way. If given half the chance, Ella could easily prove herself as a great leader - but she'd never upstage her brother like that.

Laurent Valmora-Magisray

Tall and handsome, Laur was raised to be a hero. A strong Wizard, he has also been trained in swordplay. Though more interested in the mental art, he is also talented with a blade in his hand. Anyone looking at him cannot help but sigh, 'perfect.'


House Mordine and their Heroes

His Imperial Majesty, Tarmyln IV

Emperor of D'Tar Mordin

Tarmyln is the son of the late Emperor Tarmyln III. He continues his father's plans to expand the power of D'Tar Mordin. Shrewd and intelligent, Tarmyln is at his best in a crisis. He is devoted to the alliance with Magicum and New Volencia, seeing it as a matter of honour as well as political expediency. Although he prefers not to leave D'Tar Mordin, he makes it a habit to come to Magicum once a year to consult with King Tomass and the Magnate Thordin. He is sensitive to shifts in the balance of power, and adept at controlling events from afar.

His Imperial Highness Prince Tarfulth
Lord General of D'Tar Mordin

Tarfulth is the charismatic middle son of Tarmyln III. As head of the armies of D'Tar Mordin, he actively supports the cause of the alliance against its enemies. He is deeply suspicious of Shovrah-Dan, and is training his men against the event of war. An expert in martial arts himself, he is prepared to face any threat to the Empire or its allies.

His Imperial Highness Prince Tarmoran
Grand Wizard of D'Tar Mordin

Tarmoran is the youngest of the three brothers. An archmage specializing in arcane weaponry and enchantments, he is also deeply interested in Dragon lore. Dedicated to the Oath, he concentrates his skills and knowledge in the effort to eliminate draconic influence from Ardania. Only his loyalty to his brother can restrain the zeal which might otherwise develop into an obsession.

His Imperial Highness, Prince Tarkiel
Crown Prince of D'Tar Mordin

The son of Emperor Tarmyln and the late Empress Indyra. He acts as liason between his father and King Tomass, living in the Embassy in Magicum. Quiet and perceptive, he spent his boyhood and early youth in the Rogues' Guilds in D'Tar Mordin. His customary black outfit is for more than mere appearance; he is a skilled spy who often takes it upon himself to investigate conditions for his father.

Cloud Wolf
Captain of the Hunters

Cloud was once a Warrior; his renown as a Dragon-slayer earned him the special interest of Tarfulth. Now leader of the Cadre, his skills in fighting and tracking have made him the first to attain the rank of Wolf. Intuitive, quick on his feet, and intensely loyal to the Emperor, he has performed well in the skirmishes fought with Grov-Urtat over the Valley of Gur Mechina. However, his true test lies in the future, as D'Tar Mordin prepares to launch its strike against the Black Adytum of Shovrah-Dan.

Twilight Vixen
Lieutenant of the Cadre

Twilight is the wife of Cloud, married after their entry into the Cadre. Once a Priestess, she continues to use her magical skills in combination with her hand-to-hand training. Sharp eyes and silent feet make her an expert in covert operations. She has been dispatched to Magicum by Tarmyln in order to investigate the rumours concerning Tanasril's "legacy".

House Silveredge

Lord Drexel Silveredge

Baron of Castle Silveredge

Drexel Silveredge is the bearer of the Silveredge namesake and heirloom, an enchanted mithril longsword. Ruler of the prosperous barony of Castle Silveredge, he is Tomass' most loyal vassal and supporter. Sensitive and thoughtful, he still carries with him the secret pain of many years ago when he failed to protect Riven from Tanasril. He is often in Magicum, leavng the running of his fief to his elderly cousin, Guildmaster Treven.

Sir Treven Silveredge
Guildmaster of the Shining Blades

The Shining Blades Warriors' Guild was founded centuries ago by Willem Silveredge, one of the ancestors of the current Magicum Silveredges. It is one of the most prestigious Guilds in Ardania, having drawn aspiring Warriors from all over Ardania. It has been run by Treven Silveredge since the destruction of his former Guild in Magicum. Wise with age, Treven is not only Guildmaster but advisor to Lord Drexel as well. Although his advanced years have slowed his speed and weakened his arm, his vast experience makes him a match for nearly any opponent.

Sir Tholar Silveredge
Heir to Castle Silveredge

Drexel has never married. Thus, it is his cousin, Sir Tholar, who is in line for the barony. He is the grandson of Sir Treven; his parents where killed in a surprise raid from the Ratmen who still dwell in the forgotten corners of Castle Silveredge's sewers. Sir Tholar is a quiet, thoughtful lad, more given to studying strategy than swordplay. Still, he is proficient with a sword, and is willing to give his life for Magicum, should the need arise.

Sir Juster Silveredge
Warrior of Magicum

Sir Juster is a distant cousin of Drexel and Treven and a member of the Shining Blades, but he spends little time in Castle Silveredge or Magicum. His mind is obessessed with discovering exactly what became of Tanasril after his strange defeat. Once transformed by the mad Wizard, his mind is now haunted by visions of the teratogenitor. Although far advanced in years, his quest seems to be lending him vigour. He looks much the same as forty years ago, except that his hair is now grey.

Forces of New Volencia

Magnate Thordin Barthaenian

Ruler of New Volencia

Old, weakened in body, the mind of the Magnate is still strong. He rules New Volencia well, despite his oppresive sense of impending disaster. As a result of the constant "accidents" that cloud New Volencia's atmosphere, he has become suspicious of all people except for the Magisrays and the Mordines. He has not married, and is grooming his nephew Morthar to assume the role of Magnate upon his death.

Morthar Barthaenian
Guildmaster of the Iron Guild

Intense and focused, Morthar is dedicated to the quality of the Iron Guild and keeping the Secret safe. As son of the late Durthar and nephew of Thordin, he is the heir apparent of New Volencia. Although unconcerned with affairs outside the city, he is disturbed by the increasing attempts of unworthy candidates to join the Iron Masters. Fearing for the Secret, he insists on personally interviewing every candidate. Renowned for his fearful temper, very few now apply to be trained for Iron Master.

Ixion Atreinos
Guildmaster of the Golden Guild

Ixion is the son of Iohcarael Atreinos, aging advisor to the Magnate Thordin. Cunning and resourceful, Ixion has deftly managed the Golden Guild, preventing its business from being impaired despite the mysterious attempts at sabotage and corruption. Like his friend Morthar, he has an intense temperament and always pursues a task until it is completed.

Tanasril and His Creations

Narjok

Commander of the Aergoblins

Narjok is the son of Grannok, the late Commander of Tanasril's forces. Like his father, he is devoted to the memory of "the Master". Smaller in stature than his father, he is just as skilled. If he does not boast Grannok's sheer strength, he is far more shrewd as a tactician and strategist.

Yquellar Vanathael
Chief Engineer of the Eldwarves

The Eldwarves continue to maintain the fortress on the North Downs that Tanasril left behind when he perished in the Second Battle of Magicum. Yquellar is their leader. He is cunning and sadistic, and has a great deal of experience from his long life. Although he knows that Tanasril has died, he still expects the archmage to return, either in spirit or through some apprentice to whom he has passed on his legacy. In the meanwhile, he uses his cunning in devising new engines of destruction for the use of Narjok's Aergoblins.

Sir Skraxis
Knight Commander of the Equestrodens

Skraxis split off from Tanasril just before the Second Battle of Magicum. Fired by the dream of building a new civilization, he has led his remnant band of Equestroden Knights through the Black Valley to an empty plateau north of the Dryad Forest. Now ancient in years, he is still quite capable of bending the adverse conditions to favour his race of transformed Ratmen.

Sir Ferriton
Knight Captain

Ferriton is the nephew of Knight Commander Skraxis. He owes his rank of Knight Captain in part to the power of his uncle, but also to his skill with the rapier. Although getting old, he is still fast and lean, having been hardened in the deadly Black Valley. His life is governed by a strict interpretation of the Equestrodens' code of honour.

Lady Verchiil
Knight Mystic

The Knight Mystics are a new class within the Equestroden Knighthood. Lady Verchiil, daughter of Sir Ferriton, is the head of these spell-casters. Having rejected the plague-magiks of their cousins, the Ratman Shamans, the Mystics practice healing magic, as well as divination. Verchiil is the most skilled of the dozen Mystics. Very close to her father, she uses her vast talent for scrying to aid him and the Knight Commander in their quest to find a site for the construction of their city.

Lord Ephinmor
Renegade Magefel

Charismatic, cunning, and ambitious, Ephinmor is the leader of the teratogenic spellcasters known as magefels. During the Second Battle of Magicum, he betrayed Tanasril, leading to the archmage's ultimate defeat. Now he holds the ruined city of Ferringburg, studying the secrets of necromancy which he has gathered since the war. Using the Ring of Twilight, he has assembled a large army of undead. Although his responsibility for the undead in Ferring is not known, rumours of this vile horde are spreading throughout Ardania.

Relfiras
Magefel Teratogenitor

Relfiras was a budding teratogenitor when Tanasril offered to transform him. During Tanasril's period of recuperation from the First Battle of Magicum, Relfiras became his pupil, learning the Master's techniques for creating monsters with the Forbidden Art. When Ephinmor betrayed Tanasril, Relfiras remained loyal, but was unable to help Tanasril. Now he dwells in the Black Valley, trapped there by a storm of the Ether Winds created when the Rekc'Dar destroyed the Spires of Death. He is seeking a way out of the shifting labyrinth created by this maelstrom, so that he can return to Tanasril's fortress and resume the archmage's work.

Tanasril Reborn
Legendary Teratogenitor

Tanasril was slain in the Second Battle of Magicum, but his spirit never entered Krypta's realm. In the arduous task of rebuilding Magicum, the strange fate of the mad archmage was forgotten. But, deep within the earth, the teratogenitor's spirit has been busy. Tanasril has not forgotten nor forgiven those who played a role in his defeat, nor has he abandoned his creations. Using his mastery of the Forbidden Art in conjunction with the revelations of the spirit world gleaned from death, he has crafted himself a new body from the rejected creatures banished there by the gods. Now, he is ready to make his entrance back into the world above.

Forces of the High Kingship

Lord Zaelin-Corindar

Gold Archon

Zaelin-Corindar is an ancient Gold Dragon whose memory stretches back to the Seven Winters' War. In order to preserve his existence among humans, he has become accustomed to assuming the form of a tall human dressed in robes of purple and gold and bearing a polished Wizard's staff. Devoted to Dauros, he has also a burning drive to see the Gold Dragons become the dominant race in Ardania.

Lady Berylluin
Gold Archon

Berylluin, in contrast to Corindar, is a far younger Dragon. She prefers draconic form, but in her eagerness to help humankind she is willing to appear as one of them. When she does this, her favourite form is that of a Paladin. She is deeply concerned with the Tribunal, but is often away from Caer Sydrian on diplomatic missions.

His Highness, Prince Zarrial Sydrian
Prince of House Sydrian

The youngest of six sons, Zarrial has little hope of ascending the throne of the High King. In order to give vent to his political talents, he has trained as a diplomat. He serves as ambassador to Magicum, while secretly dreaming of building a kingdom of his own.

Forces of Shovrah-Dan

His Majesty, Sevelin Dan
King of Shovrah-Dan

King Sevelin is an extremely ambitious man. He is an adept in many different fields, being skilled in administration, strategy, magic and martial arts. Having made an alliance with the Black Archon, he quickly moved to gain control of Grov-Urtat to the North and the disputed fiefs to the South. Although his ambition and lack of scruples are well-known, the length to which this scion of House Dan will go in order to obtain ultimate power are as yet unknown.

Lord Ildritch-Karanaqui
Black Archon

The secretive leader of the Black Dragons, Ildritch-Karanaqui (called by humans 'Naqui) is the sole survivor of the elder Black Dragon flight. In his heart burns a deep hatred of D'Tar Mordin and an unslakable thrist for revenge. However, having lived for two thousand years, he has learned the virtue of patience. He dwells in the catacombs beneath Shovrah-Dan, in the fell conclave of Black Dragons and other followers of Krypta known as the Black Adytum.

Sister Azraella
Ambassor to Magicum

A devout Priestess of Krypta, Sister Azraella is also King Sevelin's chief diplomatist. She has been dispatched to Magicum in order to take the measure of the town that Sevelin believes to be the key to Southern conquest. Although loyal to her king, the good Sister's eyes gleam with a purpose known only to herself. She is strange in that she comes from a long line of horse breeders, and is a fancier herself. She maintains her own stables in Shovrah-Dan, and spends her spare time in riding the open country around Magicum.

Others

Eruthac the Watcher

Rekc'Art

Eruthac is a member of the elusive Rekc'Art order. Skilled at tracking and spying, adept in fighting with his magic and staff, Eruthac is one of the best of the elite monster hunters. Like most Rekc'Art, he is tacturn and scretive, as well as intelligent. He is currently the only Rekc'Art whose whereabouts in Ardania are known: he is watching the North Downs, where Tanasril's power can still be felt.

Sir Kradght
Leader of the Dark Knights

This mysterious personage is never spoken of above a whisper. Although the Dark Knights are few in number, their influence grows as these renegade warriors work their way into high government positions. Rumour has it that Kradght is hiding somewhere in New Volencia, awaiting his chance to take control of that city.

Perovil Thaman
Last Prince of House Thaman

Perovil was considered the least of the clan headed by Errias Thaman. Ironically, he is the only one to survive. After betraying his brother, h fled into the wilderness and was forgotten. However, he has not lpst his ambition to become a great power in Ardania. Now, his cunning sharpened by years of living in the wilds, the elderly Prince returns to Thamopolis, ruined seat of his destroyed clan, and plots revenge on those he considers responsible for his downfall.

Greffen the Avenger
Son of the Conqueror

Greffen's father was the heartless but brilliant pirate, Dragun the Conqueror. After being twice thwarted by Tanasril's creations, the Conqueror retreated to the Hellfire Mountains, where he gathered himself a band of tough, destitute Heroes attracted by his charisma. Burning with hatred for Tanasril and his magical progeny, the Conqueror never was able to build up the power to return and take his vengeance. Upon his death, he passed his hatred and ambition to his son, Greffen, who now looks South towards the lands where Tanasril once walked. Skilled in archery and with the quarterstaff, the Avenger is prepared to live up to his name.

Rhysallie Tholantis
Envoy of Tholaria

Rhysallie is hardly into her twenties, and a genius. She was a merchant. Born a trader, raised a trader. She's always been beautiful. Since she was little, she was lovely. She didn't notice until her late teens, however...When she caught the eye of a baron of Tholaria. He was a distant cousin of the king's, and looking for a wife. He was a bachelor once more, his wife having died that past winter of an illness. At first, Rhys was hardly inclined to marry the man. But, the position just couldn't be denied. She saw the patterns laid out before her. Her parents were getting old, and she had no siblings. If she did not marry this Baron, she may never have a good life. So they were wed, without love - on Rhysallie's part, at least. She was only too glad when Tholaria's king found out her abilities of observation, and had her trained as a sort of emissary. Recently, she was sent to Magicum, to keep an eye on things there.

Glossary of Terms

Archons


The Archons are the leaders of the four Dragon subraces: Fire Dragons (or Drakes), Ice Dragons (or Drakes), Gold Dragons, and Black Dragons. Their goal is to restore the power and majesty of the ancient draconic kingdom that ended with the defeat of Andraxal-Kerlazor. Having built up their power in the Southern Cliffs of Ardania, they have now split, with the Gold Archons moving to Caer Sydrian and the Tribunal of Light, the Blacks to Shovrah-Dan and the Black Adytum, and the wild (Ice and Fire) Dragons remainng in the old colony of the Southern Cliffs.

Cadre

An order of elite heroes, the creme de la creme. Thought to be an organization of spies and assassins, thier real purpose is the eradication of Dragons and their influence from Ardania. This secret mission is known only to its members and to the sons of Tarmyln III. Its members, which currently number only seven, are called Hunters. There are three ranks within the Cadre: Initiate, Fox/Vixen, and Wolf. There is also a Captain, who heads the order, and his lieutenant. Currenty, four of the Cadre are Initiates, two are Foxes, and one, the Captain, a Wolf.

Dragonsbane Oath

"This day we take an oath before Krypta and the forgotten gods! We vow to purge Ardania of Dragonkind and its allies, and dedicate ourselves and our descendants to the pursuit of this cause! If ever we should turn aside from this oath, may Krypta wither our line and our fortunes!" So swore Tarmyln III in his three sons in what would become famous as the Dragonsbane Oath. Since that day, D'Tar Mordin has worked tirelessly to curtail the rising power of the draconic Archons. So far the contest has been on a minor scale, but with Sydrian and Shovrah-Dan allying themselves to the Gold and Black Dragons, the Oath threatens to force the hostile nations into open war.

Falliumae Iron Process

A technique for making iron nearly as strong as mithril, and much cheaper than the silvery metal. It was discovered by a Blacksmith named Falliumae and passed on to his apprentice, Thordin Barthaenian. Using the Process and his talent as an organizer, Thordin built New Volencia into the economic centre of Ardania. Called the Secret, the Process is heavily guarded by the Barthaenians and their Iron Guild.

Golden Guild

An association of the merchants of New Volencia. The are responsible for transporting the Processed iron and other Volencian goods throughout Ardania, and monitoring the revenue received from these transactions. They are headed by Ixion Atreinos, son of Lord Iohcarael.

Iron Guild
An association of New Volencian Blacksmiths, called Iron Masters, who possess the Secret of the Process. They are headed by Morthar Barthaenian, nephew of the Magnate Thordin.

Rekc'Art

The Rekc'Art Order is an ancient brotherhood of skilled warrior-mages. They are dedicated to hunting down and slaying those monsters beyond the power of ordinary Heroes. Once involved in the politics of D'Tar Mordin and Magicum, they decided to withdraw into seclusion after one of their Order was killed.

I think I should summarize, now, the various plots that are pre-existing to this story, and thus give our readers a point of reference, as it were.

House Magisray ~ Line of royalty founded by King Riley, ruling the kingdom of Magicum. The core of the stories, they are the object of most, if not all, the plots.

Imperial/Alliance Plotline ~ Emperor Tarfulth made an alliance with King Riley in order to garner power for the Empire of D'Tar Mordin in Southern Ardania. Both sides have prospered from this alliance, with D'Tar Mordin having an establised colony in Magicum and the Magisrays being able to call on the Imperial heroes whenever they are in danger. On the flip side, it ties the two nations together, and as D'Tar Mordin is one of the strongest realms in Ardania, Magicum is often in danger of becoming a pawn in the power struggles between D'Tar Mordin and its rivals.
Tanasril Plotline ~ The Tanasril story branches off from the Imperial plotline when Requistor, Lord General of D'Tar Mordin, rebelled against Tarfulth, who was currently in Magicum. Requistor kidnapped Carmen, daughter of King Riley, and gave her to his archmage, Tanasril the Broken. Tanasril was a teratogenitor, an evil Wizard who twists natural creatures into monsters. Carmen was rescued before he could transform her, but he swore that he would get his revenge on those responsible for her escape. Centuries later, Tanasril, having nearly mastered the Forbidden Arts, attacks Carmen's descendants with an army of enhanced monsters. He is narrowly repelled, but renews his oath to destroy Magicum and transform the Magisray family. Again he attacks, but this time his army collapses and he himself is slain. However, he continues to seek his vengeance, forming himself a body in the measureless caverns beneath the surface and haunting the dreams of Princess Riven, whom he managed to transform.
Thaman Plotline ~ The Thaman clan was a family of nobles originally from a small kingdom known as Thamos. One branch of their family become vassals of the Magisray. The heir of this line, Daric Thaman, betrayed Queen Alhana when Tanasril first attacked Magicum, and was exiled for his crimes. He sought refuge with his cousins, who had lately conquered the neighbouring kingdom of Ferring. Led by General Errias, the Thamans attacked Magicum, but were annihilated. Although the Thaman power is broken, the consequences of their bid for power remain: Ferring and Thamos are now rulerless, their lands becoming desolate and a haunt for monsters and outlaws. Somewhere, too, the renegade Thaman, Prince Perovil, wanders the land, seeking to fulfill his thwarted ambitions.
Dragon Plotline ~ The Dragons of the South Coast first entered Magicum's history due to Tanasril. Fearing the archmage's growing power, the Dragons helped Alhana defeat Tanasril in his first attempt to destroy Magicum. However, when Tanasril's minions stole the Ring of Twilight from them, the Black and Gold factons split, with the Gold Dragons still trying to aid Alhana and the Black Dragons trying to destroy her and use her kingdom as a base for their own power. In a freak accident, the Black Dragons were lured away from Magicum by a single Gold Dragon and wound up instead over D'Tar Mordin. The city, thinking itself attacked, fired at the Dragons, drawing down their wrath. The flight, however, was destroyed; thus beginning hostilities between the Imperial family (House Mordine) and Dragonkind. The Dragons, however, having tasted power, were not satisfied with returning to their petty feuds back in the South Cliffs. The Gold Dragons offered their services to the High Kings of House Sydrian, the Blacks to Shovrah-Dan; intending in each case to direct the affairs of these cities and use the humans to carry out their war.
Teratogenic Plotlines ~ Deriving from Tanasril's story, the tales of the two "free" teratogenic races centre on the dreams and ambitions of their leaders: Skraxis of the Equestrodens and Ephinmor of the magefels. Both seek to found their own kingdoms, although their ultimate aims are different. Skraxis desires only to build up a nation in peace, and is willing to work with his neighbours; Ephinmor seeks power and intends to take control of Ardania.
Dryad Plotline ~ House Magisray has close ties to the Dryads who live in the forest to their north, various members of their family having married the green-skinned feys. Allied to Magicum, they are still hostile to other humans; and this alliance also brings something of a stigma down on Magicum from the more prejudiced of the other rulers.
Archmage Plotlines ~ Archmage left several plotlines related, directly or indirectly, to magicum. Most important is the fate of New Vlencia, newest member of the alliance (we should start capitalizing that), which is now bound up with the Dark Knights. Then there is Dragun and the Rekc'Art, who still have a part to play.

Very complicated, but not impossible (hopefully). I foresee most of the action taking place in Magicum's new Embassy and the Palace, with Embassy being the focus of the political intrigue and the Palace being the focus of Tanasril's attempts to draw the Magisrays under his influence.

*carefully peeking out of the book pile ...*

Falotar, I am not gone as in 3 foot under the ground. I am only 3 foot under the book piles; anyhow, I am still in touch with the majesty community (when I can spare the time).

Well written first post, by the way. I am starting to believe you can write anything, from well structured story to great characters. There is one thing missing from the post however, the characters of House Magisray are curiously missing. If you are waiting for someone or taking your time, please do that, rushed work are seldom good.

Please take care of my character; really, I am dealing with enough system analysis to make my nose bleed, so I really canít spare any time to write, I am sorry.

As usual, I will some times peek out of the book pile to appreciate your work.

*carefully burry himself back into the book pile.*

You do realize, Cooker, that I am waiting for Raistlin? The Magisrays are her characters, and since she has not disappeared (or been buried under books), it is her responsibility to post them. When she does so, then i will add them.

*cries* It was Rosh Hashannah, sorry; I did my best to write when I could. I'll try to post something soon; I'm almost done. Smile And I'll get the new characters (and old, I guess) out once I do that.

I've finished posting my characters -- all 31 of them -- and am ready to go. Well, I was ready to go anyway, but ... ahem.
Anyway, I'm going to put in a little more description of the Cadre, so that I won't have to in the story.

Each Hunter in the Cadre is dressed in loose-fitting garments of black material twined with designs in colours specific to the individual. Their weapons consist in five-pronged talons which form part of a long leather glove. Each Hunter also wears an amulet around his neck. Unique to each Hunter, the amulet is imbued with ancient draconic enchantments which enable their wearers to cast powerful spells.

Amendment on dragons and Raven:

BTW: You said an archon does not have ability to revert Raven to original form because they do not know the forbidden art. That was half correct. The archons do not know forbidden art, but they could reverse time . So if they can justify reverting Raven they could. I doubt, however, it make no sense for a deity to use divine intervention twice on behalf of a kingdom that does not even worship him. (First time being putting a very annoying arch-mage in his place)

BTW, great work with your character bios Razz
Back to work now Very Happy, damn this computer is distractive.

Thank you, Cooker.
One note about Tanasril. In the Sovereign II and III, Tanasril's voice was high-pitched and cracked, as hideous as the rest of him. However, when in The Sovereign he was young, his voice was deep and resonant. Now that he is dead/resurrected, his voice is restored to its former beauty.

*Does victory dance* Yeah! Finished it, typed it, posted it. Never mind that it took me way too many weeks...*Glares at evil school*

Anyway, to clear things up; when Ella and Laur were born, there was a nice little prophecy, saying that the child would grow unto true greatness, and reclaim the throne of the ancestors, and bring MAgicum back into greatness. It has obviously been assumed that Laurent is the savior, and has been raised as such. Ellaria has lived in his shadow all their lives; she isn't happy about it. :-p

I'll get up profiles when I can. Smile

Hey, Raistlin, you are better then you usually are, that is surprising since you are VERY hard to surpass.

Awaiting your writings, royal historian Ö

Well. I believe I've just made a profound conclusion: Laurent is not the saviour.
Now, let's see ... where to start ...

I've been reading the tremors of The Sovereign IV over the past couple of weeks, and it looks like it's finally erupted.

Great work so far! I'll be keeping my eye on this one.
