While the Land Sleeps

« Back to Chronicles


While the Land Sleeps begins immediately after the events chronicled in Remember the Cost and goes through the spring of the following year (3551). During the fall and winter on Aereth, most people are occupied with preparing for the land's return to life in the spring, but many also must deal with minor and major crises and the arrival of new friends and foes.

The majority of the chapters in While the Land Sleeps are short character driven scenes and story arcs which also foreshadow the events in upcoming chronicles.
