An Alteran Bard
- Lana's Journey Around The Continent -
Read all about her travels, as if you're there!
Lana, student at Frostwarts, has read so many stories in the books that she's become inspired to go out and find her own tale. She is traveling the entire continent. People are free to tag along with her, but not all of us are able to. Yet, we might want to know what she's up to and what new adventures have happened in foreign parts we don't even know the names of!
Lana accommodates just that, by sending incredible stories over to Frostwarts every week.
From here on out, we can keep up with Lana, by reading the weekly released books that Lana sends to Kublai.
Read all about what has happened to Lana the past IC week, by reading the newly released books the moment they're added to the library.
Come to Frostwarts' library, find the "Places & Locations" section and read the latest edition of "Around The Continent"
Wake's series of "Around the Continent" is an invaluable set of books that every self-respecting Alteran roleplayer should have read. The way Wake interweaves cultural lore with the city's architecture and the (religious) inclination of each city, along with their history, makes you feel like it is real. It is as if all these towns, that were made by separate players, were actually made by one single mastermind. Wake brings our history to life.
