« Beyond Plíagge »
Soon, the mystery was realized, and men and women began to hope again. They looked into the sky beyond the horizon of the setting sun. The hope became as the "gleaming rays" of the setting sun.
A spark ignited and the entrance was found! Finally, discovering the entrance to Arden, a voice proclaimed:
`Í-far ghaòmh da Shecìnaich Òir, ní phlían à Phlíagh-Àugus haòir, berbàggadh
chòttan uár-rí-domh. dTa, faíl an cattain! Aòan mhan go fhairragh, Craim-Babhain
Òir, àal coímheàdadh Hrím-àal-go-Aíbhinn hoís, go faelain Òi gcínn.
Aion ghafàirranain ber - faeladh cgí àal. Beshír còuadh í ber hoícs, í coímheàdh
Besh frídh oda ungul faíl an cattain, àal ní fair. "Beyond the gleam of My Shekinah in the horizon of my pages lies the realm of profound absolute. There, Time is full! The one who I've appointed, my Quill Bearer, will keep
this supernatural boundary until I come."

"Beyond the gleam of My Shekinah in the horizon of my pages lies the realm of profound absolute. There, Time is full! The one who I've appointed, my Quill Bearer, will keep
this supernatural boundary until I come."
Soon, I found myself standing on the layer of existence, somewhere about time, and when Àugus sent forth his Akkoán, a bright shaft of light permeated the outer expanse, and a small tear opened in the Ksvellav. Excerpt from the Book of the Morning.

The Secrets of Arden are Hidden!
Even in the beginning of time, men and women sought the horizon to reach the Voice and endeavored to go beyond the horizon with no luck. Still, the same. The sun disappears into the "unknown." Where is the srías? They all say. It is no mystery that the "gleam of the elevated sunbeam," guarded
by the Shekinah and the horizon of Plíagge are tied together somehow. The secrets remain kept!
The Sojourners' Litany of Plíagge:
§ The Elemental Points of Arden §
The Kue word for "air" is uíras. This is the element which holds and binds Arden together. It is controlled by thought and creativity. King Exiv, the god of sun, controlled this elemental point with the help of his "Children of the Morning," but now, it is lost. Deception forged by the god of Lightning has caused the control of this elemental point to be obscure. Proclaiming himself, the Prince of the Power of the Air, Kuírbha has become the chief adversary to the Realm of Arden. The Human Kingdom of Melkàu of the west, Elfin Kingdom of Saskía of the east, and the Elemental Kingdom of Uran under the Children of the Morning and King Exiv, dominated the Pre-Historic Era in Arden, and when Uran crashed, hope remained with the Last Guardian.
The Kue word for "earth" or "world" is arden. This element is dominated with strength and constitution. It dominates life and keeps Arden strong and solid.
Ollen, god of strength, dominates this sphere of power with his might. Ollen came to the rescue of his brother, King Exiv, when the creature, Xandràxan was losed upon Arden. Ollen came to the rescue of Queen Saa`skàuty, the Elfin Mother,
when the Elfin Kingdom of Eluíra was threatened by Queen Akkævall, goddess of Desire. Ollen married the Elfin Mother to redeem the remnants of Uran and to promote the Human King of Shuíemha to be born.
The Kue word for "fire" is ilùvi. Fire ignites Arden with fervency and passion. It's power is felt by the courageous and wielded by the brave. Ilùvi keeps Arden alive with spirit and emotion.
Wuàde, god of fire, controls the sphere of fire. However, because of Wuàde's dedication to the Bibhon, balance in Arden is often corrupted by the negative effects of fire. The Elfin Kingdom of Cátern felt the awful effects of fire,
when King Ilùviuks was born. The Evil King corrupted the elfin fire, reàchas, to slaugter and destroy thousands in Arden. This power was feared by the great Kue Empire of the west, and the last Elfin Kingdom of Eluíra came to the aid of the Cátern Elfs and King Shadlíer. This
did not last and King Shadlíer and the Skoran elves disappeared, leaving unbalance in the elements.
The Kue word for "water" is lusa. Water purifies Arden with Peace and Serenity. Purity gives Arden it's wisdom and splendor. The purity of water will give birth to the Concordant Summit.
There is a struggle of leadership over water between Vínuim, god of natural order, and Saa'vallstràu, god of destruction. On the other hand, Iskàul, god of water, seems to have the purity needed to lead water to the Unseen Element. Hope was almost
lost when the last Struíl Diaspora came to pass, but the last of the elves and noble men united after the arrival of Daulky Kinkayle. After the matter of Kinkayle's martyrdom, these elves and men heard rumors of a scion to King Tristan, going by
the name of Treíkayan. This scion was both elf and human (often called, the "uílaul"), it was believed he would be the key figure to bring ultimate balance of the Elemental Points with a "new fire," a fire to negate the old ways of Wuàde. This Treíkayan
was rumored to be the remaining son of King Tristan and Queen V`Lantrath...But, he was never found and he has only become a legend.
There is an Unseen element within the mysterious fabric of Arden, the uísara uír. The source of it's power is unknown. Since the dawning of Time upon Arden, it is the one element which is not seen or understood. The Predator of Time, the Xandràxan, tried devouring the one and only hero who would initiate it's appearance and understanding.
The Last Guardian of King Exiv was the key to the God of the Concordant Summit. By the power of his Cognition, the Last Guardian saw beyond Plíagge with the help of the Oracle Knight, Mharabhàunt. This mystery was lost when the Dark Sleep fell over mankind with Kuírbha's Lightning Wraiths. Myth surfaced that the God of the Concordant would arrive one day and stand upon the Holy Altar at Conería in Durkshuír on the Last Day. Throughout time, those who have
seen this god have
been blessed with his glory. Whoever this god is, no one has seen his face or known his name. Only a mark of blessing has been upon all who have seen his glory. The People of Omhan or the Hardadh d` Srí are a race of people, man and elf alike, who have seen the Uísara Uír. Marked with flashing grey eyes, shining as the sun, and hair that gleams white as snow, it is rumored that the Srí symbolize the Eternal Kingdom of Cadhàlcotha, which will be ruled by
the God of the Concordant Summit one day... « Back to Top! »
