   Over the course of Santharian history, many heroes have ventured into unknown lands, searching for great objects of power and value. Some of these were warriors, trained all their lives for combat and war. Others were mages, who had spent more time locked up in musty towers then they had outside of them. Many more were roguish knaves, unscrupulous, full of avarice, yet dashing and charismatic. However, few of these famed adventurers were scholars. In all my readings, in all my journeys, only one tale of a pilgrimage of scholars has crossed my ears. The tale is my own.
I am Nsikigan Yourth, of the Eyelian men. My people are commonly known as Tamers, an epitaph given for our ability to not only make friends with the birds and beasts of Caelereth, but to speak with them, in chirps, and roars, and squeals and caws. I have not yet seen two tenyears of life in our beautiful world, but thanks to Artimidor Federkiel, I have seen more wonders then many have seen in a hundred years or more.
Artimidor Federkiel is a name well-known to all the folk of Southern Sarvonia, and a name not unfamiliar to the ears of those who live beyond. He is famed for the creation of one thing above all his other discoveries and contributions- the Santharian Compendium. An encyclopedia of every bird, beast, tree, shrub, clan, tribe, race, and weapon found in our great world. It is a work always in development, a work that can never be truly finished. I am proud to be a contributor.

Here I am, rambling about books and sages, while you, dear reader, are left hanging on that last sentence in the first paragraph… “The tale is my own.” You may be desperate to hear that tale. You want to hear stories. You want me to tell of the sordid port of Nauroth, of the wonders of Xixmax, of the exotic lands and people of far-off Nymblamr. And what did we scholars quest for? You really want to know? Dear reader, we quested for nothing less then the Mirror of the Gods.

In the beginning, so the stories say, there was nothing. Then there was Ava. She is the goddess venerated by the elves, the mother of all and the light of the world. It is said she created the world with only a thought, and in a cosmic mirror, she gazed into her creation. This mirror, the stories claim, gave Ava omniscience, the power to gaze over her whole creation. But also, reflected in this mirror was Coor, the shadow, the Shade. This mirror, dear reader, is an object of great power and knowledge, but also an object of deepest darkness. But it not the scholar’s job to shirk away from danger. It is the scholar’s job to share his knowledge. And in these pages, dear reader, that is exactly what I intend to do.

Also, I think you mean 'Prologue' instead of 'Prolouge' ;)
