Journey to Ábrelyn - Part II

Journey to Ábrelyn (a tale of Emélrenè) - Part II - the Elder Dark

The group of fosterlings made camp on a ridge overlooking a stream that ran down to join the upper reaches of the Gadén river. The sun set early, even though it was summer, passing down behind mount Negéros, now far to the west. Mists rose from the valley below, and a gloom gathered round the group.

Their elderly émhlèn guide, Erýnos, as he had done before, warned the group to keep close together, and not stray from the fire. Kélroth was still lost in thought, pondering the realisation that these steep hills and peaks were his true homeland. He went about his appointed tasks automatically, paying little attention to his fellow travellers. They ate a rough but pleasant meal, and when they were done, Kélroth gathered their wooden bowls and made his way down to the nearby stream to clean them. [Read more...]

Journey to Ábrelyn

Journey to Ábrelyn (a tale of Emélrenè) - Part I - the Call of Home

Kélroth and his companions had travelled several days on their journey up the Legáma river valley from Ráleth, making their way along the trail through the foothills of the Jerinálian mountains. They had been provided hospitality at Hiténos keep, the seat of the Earl of Negáros.

The group's guide, an aged émhlè, had been warmly welcomed by the Earl's constable, and they had been provided with accomodation of a higher standard than Kélroth had encountered either at home on his uncle's humble manor far south in Berémashire, or anywhere else on the road. Rumour was that the Earl was away hunting or possibly even south in Beréma; Kélroth and his companions were not privy to such details. [Read more...]

The Émel Gálani - the Middle Straits

The narrow waters between the island of Hârn and the Lýthian mainland are known as the "Émel Gálani" - the Middle Straits.

These straits lie between the realms of Emélrenè and Mèlderýn, and do not so much separate these realms, as bind them together - even though they can be dangerous for shipping, particularly between the island of Mèlderýn and Cape Kálam (the westernmost point of the Lýthian mainland).

Know your Àzeryáni Emperors...

The Empire of Ázeryàn is hugely significant in northwestern Lýthia (Venârivè), culturally, historically and politically. At its height, around 250 years ago, the Empire dominated the region, stretching from the borders of Emélrenè to the eastern shore of the Venârian sea. Even today, where it has shrunk to the Ázeryàn Peninsula, it is still by far the largest and most powerful realm in the region. [Read more...]

Charts of Salónen Ekàtriása

Salónen Ekàtriása is a renowned Chéler cartographer, based at Kolâdis.

He has expert knowledge of the seas around western Chélemby, and a good knowledge of other areas of the western Gulf of Shôrkýnè. Since the fisheries upon which Chélemby and Kolâdis in particular rely migrate seasonally and intermittently, he spends considerable time verifying and updating his charts, which are in strong demand from fishermen and other seafarers in the region.

Attached to this Lore article is an example of the Charts that Salónen produces - although he is unlikely to provide all of the data on the attached map to a single customer - but rather sell more specific information and charts on an "as needed" basis.

More information about Salónen and the fishing activities around Kolâdis can be found in the Kolâdis module.
