Come read the Stories.
You will learn much in the stories. There is a rich history in the lands of Fedonta. There have been great wars, and powerful clans and kingdoms. There have been awing loves and awful tragedies. There is always hope and there is prophecy to make you doubt why you hope. There is the story unfolding as we speak.
DREAMING OF FEDONTA is the series of what is happening now, with book one being The Sword of Ferbandey. You will also find tidbits in Tales of the Realm and Poetry (as the history of any great land is wont to do.)
