Formation of the Kingdom

Ray posted this note about how the Kingdom of the Isles came to power on the mainland of Triagia:

The Kingdom began on the Island of Rillanon. They conquered their neighbors to form the Kingdom of the Isles (that's how they got the name). Their first foothold on the mainland was the conquest of Bas-Tyra. From there it was just expansion until they ran into the Empire.

At roughly the same time, the rebellion of the Keshian Confederacy caused the Empire to pull its forces to the south, allowing the Free Cities and Queg to become independent, and giving Isles more room to grow.

CRPG Update

Here's the latest word from Ray on the status of Midkemian computer games:

Nothing planned at this state. We're still trying to get dis-entangled from Sierra after Havas shut down Pyrotechnix and cut back Sierra Studio.

There have been hintings all along that a massively multiplayer role playing game is in the works...

Conclave

Ray posted this about the cast of characters in the new series:

You will see very few of the characters you're familiar with in the new series, and when you do they will be in minor or cameo roles.

Consider it a new series, just one step this side of a new world. Same background issues, but new players.

Map Update

Ralph Askren posted this update regarding the Unnofficial Atlas:

For those interested, I have made a few more cosmetic improvements to the map of Triagia at the Unofficial Atlas. Yes, the image file keeps getting bigger and the load time longer. I hope you will think it worth the wait.

Order of the Riftwars

Ray posted this message about the place of The Conclave of Shadows in the overall scheme of five Riftwars:

The 3rd Riftwar will take place after the Conclave of Shadows series starts. I don't know if that's going to blend in or if I'll start a distinct series. It depends on where the story of the Conclave takes me.

Meecham's Fate

Ray posted this in response to a question about Meecham's fate:

There's one reference to him, and I can't remember which book, maybe in KB. After Kulgan's death, he left Stardock, and no one knows what happened to him.

The Gods

Ray posted this message about the Midkemian gods:

Well, it's nothing terribly profound, and I wouldn't say this was my personal belief system, but in the universe I write about, the gods come in two flavors, greater and lesser.

The greater gods are basically the energy that drives the universe. The closest Earth equivalent would be the Hindu 'Trimurti' the three faces of the Ultimate, Brahama, Shiva, and Vishnu, one who builds, one who destroys, and one who preserves.

The greater gods care nothing about humans. They are so far above us that we're so many gnats on a piece of rotting fruit in the gutter of a city they're flying over at 36,000 feet.

The lesser gods are the ones humans interact with.

They are the more central impulses of the universe, given expression by humans who worship them.

So love, hate, fire, the sea, vengence, justice, etc. all gain expression through worship. As the worship varies, so varies the aspect of the god.

Then there are local gods, who achieve power through devotion in a local area.

That's about it off the top of my head.
