October 19th 2015

Upon the shores of the Laughley Sea, in the shadows of the jagged Northland Mountains and not so far south as the blistering Aronee Desert, there exists a land of lush forests and golden plains. This land is known as Lynsid, a once great nation that has suffered through more than a decade of demoralizing wars. The brothers Tevanon and Kensic were born to Lynsid like their parents and grandparents before them. They know no other life and have never been outside the borders of their homeland. Lynsid, however, is on the verge of collapse and rumors of a Vlagen invasion spur a mass migration. At first, the brothers have no intention of leaving their birthplace, but soon enough they have no choice and find themselves on the trail to a land called Turlot where their Great Uncle Welksley resides.

At just thirteen-years-old, Tevanon is already highly skilled in swordsmanship, and his nine-year-old brother Kensic is mentally gifted. These attributes are useful, but the journey to Turlot will test not only their brawn and brains, but also their faith and tactfulness. The brothers learn quickly the world is filled with endless adversity. Treachery is in plain sight, evil sorcery is silently stirring, and an immortal army is lying in wait! If the brothers wish to survive, they must be vigilant, they must be brave, and they must believe in themselves.

“We should be better than halfway,” said Jeron.
“Can you go on? Or shall we camp here tonight?” asked Tevanon.
“I fear if we camp I may not make it through the night.”
A crackling of leaves disrupted them, and then there was a voice. “It makes no difference whether you ride or not, death will claim you.”
Tevanon drew his sword at the man’s first word. He could see the vague outline of a person sitting against one of the twisted trees. He didn’t appear threatening, but Tevanon was taught to error on the side of caution.
“Put your weapon away. I’m too old to be a threat. Not even the most docile creatures fear me anymore.”
“Perhaps so, but I will not become a victim of your trickery.”
“Very well, wield your sword.” The man stood relying heavily on the tree for support. He was hunched over, his left arm hanging lower than the right, and his right foot facing almost backwards. The twisted tree he stood under appeared more normal than he did especially when he started to walk, or rather shuffle. His movements were awkward, almost non-human on account of having to overcome several abnormal physical traits. Still, he slowly moved closer to Tevanon until he was within arm’s reach of the man-sized youth’s big brown horse.
“What is your name?” asked Tevanon still gripping his sword ready for battle.
“What is in a name but what a person is known for?”
“Some names are known for nothing,” said Kensic.
“Ah, but you are incorrect,” said the man waving his hand in small circles. “Every name is known for something to someone in the world, even the most unknown among us.”
“I suppose that is true, but it is a less common point of view.”
“My name is Kensic, but were I asked if it would ever be known like the name King Ker, I would tell you no. However, I would tell you to remember my brother’s name.”
“Yes, yes… Tevanon will be a name long remembered.”
“How do you know my name?” asked Tevanon curious.
“The gods, they talk of you,” said the man with a slanted smile. “And I speak with the gods.”
“Who are you?” Tevanon’s question was harsh as he was tiring of the old man’s strange commentary.
“He is the mystic Ohvee,” said Jeron. “More commonly known as the Madman Prophet.”
“Really?” blurted Kensic. “The Madman Prophet predicted the fall of Levoo… nine times and all of them wrong, isn’t that right?”

“Just because I can speak with the gods doesn’t mean they tell me the truth,” said Ohvee.
