Welcome back to Lore of the Underlings, a trail of tales to the end of things, and maybe a bit beyond.
The lore continues. In this episode: While on nightwatch for his fallen friend, the beautiful vell Arrowborne, Fyryx Hurx reveals much about the people he leads -- the Treasured of Syland -- a chosen folk cast long ago into the hard internal exile of an unforgiving wilderness by the clever and farseeing Semperor.
Of himself the man Fyryx reveals much as well, as he wanders the past to ponder a new threat -- strangers from without, three foreigners armed with uncomfortable tales. Can his boyhood memories help him now?
Lore of the Underlings is an epic poetry series from John Klobucher's lands of Lore. It's a bittersweet saga of gold and shadow told in classic style -- with old-world words but new-world wit. Fun for fans of puns and lyrical tongues!

A great follow-up to the first episodes!
lyrical writing, interesting world. More, please!
This episode is an interesting character study (of a tired and tormented leader) but the author also uses it to reveal a lot of fascinating back-story. I like the world that is evolving here. It is shaping up to be quite an epic.
