Landing Page: Reiassan

Reiassan

The two largest (and only surviving) nations on the continent of Reiassan have been at war, on and off, for centuries, gobbling up all smaller nations in their wake. Now, in the 20th year of Emperor Alessely, the Northern nation of Callenia has conquered the Southern nation of Bithrain.

In the aftermath of the war, one healer in the Emperor’s Army, a woman named Rin, has taken as a captive a Bitrani soldier. Although she calls him Girey of Tugia, and has convinced him to do the same, her prisoner is the surviving heir of the deposed-and-soon-to-be-executed King of Bithrain. Now she is bringing him home, across the long mountainous countryside to the far northern Callanthe capital city of Lannamer.

Reiassan is a fantasy story with romantic elements. The still-very –new Steam!Reiassan is set quite some time in the future in the same country, and is a steampunk setting.

NB: The setting is constantly evolving. While the stories are in the process of being edited for the e-book, the versions here on livejournal/dreamwidth will have some setting inconsistencies – horses v. goats, etc.

  1. Love it! Aside from some hyphens acting oddly) not matching in size), no typos. And I really like these (especially the tea story).

    • *grin* somehow I’m not surprised! Oh, I did a name list for Vas and will do one for each ot the others, eventually.

      • Oh! Names. Neat. I’ve always liked names and pronunciation guides. And of course I like tea. I shall go suggest tea in Rochester…

          • Only about 25%. I do drink a lot of tea, T liked T, Lizzymommy and RikSowden use it as long-distance comfort, so do Wyst and Trix…

          • *nods* You do have a lot of tea people around. I think I will hunt up the icon tomorrow. Perhaps a photo of one of my teapots can be arranged over the weekend.

          • Mmmmmm, tea. I should totally get one of those pots from the nice lady at the wine and gift store. I like watching tea steep. Also, how did I not notice that your icon says “Happy Place”? And that it is fire? *grins* So your happy place is red and fire. Hrm…

          • I don’t blame you! I like them all! I have a teapot very like that one, though mine has not gone green with oxidation. It is brown and metal and gets very hot. It is small by I love it so. The shape is very right.

          • We have one of those as well, still black, a gift from an aunt (the only tea-drinking aunt). It sits on the bookshelf, because it holds very little tea. If you would like any, feel free. I probably won’t keep them all.

          • All? All the teapots? Hrm, I’ll ponder it. On the one hand, I love teapots. On the other, I already have one like that, and yeah, they don’t hold much tea. I don’t really need more stuff…

          • Eek, sorry. πŸ™‚ The icons, not the pot. I’m Very fond of the pots, even the ones we don’t use.

          • Oh, the icons! I get it. *grins* I think I will keep this one, and then get a photo of my pot sometime. It may not be as good a photo, but will be more personal.

          • also, yes, I yoinked it from the small batch icons group. Yes. My happyplace is red and firey. And you’re the first to catch that. πŸ˜€

          • *grins* It took me a while! Hrm, I also know the other things Red is for you. Do they tie into the happy place, or just the color and fire? My happy place is probably swirls of blue and purple, at least in color.

          • Into “happyplace,” yes. Into Ommm and Zen, no. Weird distinction, but “happyplace” isn’t always happy?

          • I am coming to love the icon groups! (This one is, technically, for the Alouetta’s Garden series πŸ˜‰

          • Oh, of course! That’s why you need pretty flowers (other than for cheer). Icons are terribly fun.

  2. Re: suggested starting points – Abduction is inaccessible even though I’m logged in. Is there another step I’m missing?
