The Past

In Cycle 736, Werethain Henri Fannix Montbarre attempted to usurp the throne of Hyrward from his elder brother, Arcildor Maxime Valain Montbarre.  Exiled from Jados, Werethain embarked upon a twelve-cycle odyssey that ultimately brought him to the shores of the fabled continent of Revahlián (now known simply as Lián).  His discovery and subsequent exploration of the previously-isolated land ushered in an era of unparalleled advancement in agriculture, architecture, and husbandry for the mostly nomadic civilisation. What follows here is but a brief sampling of the extensive notes, letters, and drawings that Werethain produced during his prolonged study of the savage and secret land of Revahlián.
