Rézár Láréín Rézzá Liridess Aérálv:
An Unbiased Treatise

(click on image to enlarge)



Overview
High Empress Rézár Láréín Rézzá Liridess Aérálv, commonly known as Rezza Aeralv or simply “Rezar”, some say was the closest the Krean ever came to having a tyrant. “If ever a person is to blame for the conception of the Krean as devious, inexorable, fiendish schemers (with a vial of poison in one hand and the Sphere of Fate1 in the other) and the enmity against them2,” Emperor Dearan once wrote, “the blame lies on Rezar.” Many scholars list Rezza Aeralv (“Rezar”) as the third best-known Krean in the continent of Nybelmar and indeed across the Disk after the High Priestess of Ankriss and Emperor Dearan. Certainly she accompanies the two not only in fame but in controversy – seldom does a name bring such diverse reactions from people… We endeavour to bring to you the most orthodox version of her life story – though dip, almost randomly, into the multitudinous tomes written on her and you are bound to find more extreme versions going either way.

The life as well as the persona of Rezar has proved fertile ground for academics, but despite the staggering divergence of opinion and the many academic battles, scholars agree on a few fundamental points: (1) That Rezar lived in one of the most troubled times in the history of her nation; (2) that the great affluence and power the Ancient Krean enjoyed up to the Year of Darkness is due largely to her “mithril”3 reign; (3) that a study of the Krean and indeed Nybelmar would be woefully incomplete without some familiarity with Rezar. Of course a cynic might regard this last statement as Rezavial scholars blowing their own horns. We reserve judgment.





Footnotes:
[1] Various surviving accounts of Emperor Dearan’s famous remark, bordering on the indictment, somewhat deviate from one another: Many other scholars quote the text as “with a vial of poison in one hand and the key for the Vaults in the other” – the Vaults referring to the treasury of the Grand Empire of Krath.
[2] Despite being Krean himself, Emperor Dearan Asaen notoriously referred to the Krean – almost without exception – as “them”. Contrast his attitude towards the Zhunites and mainland Krath - two of his most famous speeches for instance begin as: “We the Krath’aszar” (The Oath of Zsharath) and “Ankriss may have drafted me as Krean but I am [/ ended up as] Zhunite in spirit. I oft reason therefore that something must have gone awry in the process…” But we digress…
[3] An academic, so insignificant his other researches that one forgets the name, writing a critique of The Iron Reign of  Rézár Láréín Rézzá Liridess Aérálv: The Affluence & The Influence, once remarked that her obstinacy & grip over the Peninsula was not iron but mithril!



Just a teaser...

Well, I could only see the left side of the pic when it displayed, so this wasn't that ideal neither... :b

I'm liking the picture... very ethereal and alluring.  Can't wait to see what follows!  :)

Oh, and the title reminded me - when might we see more of the Krean language (or Kráth'melár'ián, I think you called it) coming along?  No pressure, of course, just shameless curiousity... it bears some orthographical similarities to Styrásh, and so therefore intrigues me right away. nod

Lol, don't read too much into my use of interesting letters - they are not accents or any other fascinating linguistic stuff. Just a sort of personalized phonetic alphabeth - so I remember how I intended the words to sound like!

And I am certainly not qualified to create a consistent language so don't set your hopes too high! LOL, I am merely good at marketing and giving stuff an attractive gloss ;) If there is to be any hope of a Krean language being created, help would desperately be needed! I am useless in that regard. Hopefully when the time comes I will have succeeded in a) alluring the masters of the craft like Anwulf, Mina and you to take over the project and b) not having left behind anything that is too contradictory to create something sensible from :)

Btw: Krath'melarian isn't exactly the Krean language - more of an adopted version (merged with several other tongues) that formed the imperial tongue.
