More updates for the Compendium, hope you find ‘em useful Artimidor :)  

MEDOC'S SWORD -

Sword carried by Medoc when he was serving as the Captain of the Guards in
Voldar. An outwardly innocuous-looking weapon of utilitarian, sensible
design but in truth, the sword was forged from metal mined from the deepest
of dwarven mines and branded ésh-dél by the Styrá. The hilt of the sword was for a time briefly melded to Katya's palm as she was carrying it in her hand when the Dragonstorm hit. The unbelievable heat of dragonfire melted the metal which grafted onto her skin and it would take powerful elven healing to separate the girl and sword apart once more.

Although twisted and warped by dragonfire, the metal of the broken sword
still rang true when Katya hurled it into the eye of Ol'dem'brey, wounding
the beast and effectively ending the months long siege on the city of Voldar
by the dragons.


VAELARON DAIN -

Lysander Dain's father and the Captain of the Guards - taking over the position from his predecessor, Medoc Ileri - during the beginning years of the Age of Awakening. His loyalty to his liege-lady is absolute and without question. It was largely due to his considerable influence as the Captain that the 3 Council members, Amalthea Eithar, Trioan Sellus and Kel Branoc were able to overrule Nikos Lothari, Aerlicht Hruth and their allies, and to convince the other remaining 3 Houses to support Jenefra’s sovereignty claim during the ascension dispute after Maengolth's death.

He and Medoc were good friends before the latter's retirement and Vaelaron has been known to journey to Yarrow on occasional rare visits to his old comrade, whereupon both soldiers would proceed to drink huge
amounts of leithe and reminisce about the good old days.


CAPTAIN OF THE GUARDS -

Despite the rather modest title, the Captain of the Guards is actually the
highest-ranking military position in the Erpheronian Army of Voldar.
Although to prevent total dominion over the entire militia by a single man,
six other commander-in-chiefs are also appointed to share in the keeping of
order and training of the army. However, these six are answerable to the
Captain in times of war and conflicts and they also have to report to him on a monthly basis on their sections' progress.

Whenever a Captain is killed or retiring, the Ruling Council will gather a
list of 15 suitable successors and present them to the Erpheronian sovereign
for approval. When this is done, the candidates are then gathered and over a
period of two weeks, are given numerous, arduous tasks to test their
intelligence, agility, prowess in combat, tactician skills and finally,
diplomacy for a Captain may be sent to neighboring kingdoms on ambassadorial matters. These tasks have been affectionately nicknamed by soldiers as 'The Captain's Lasts' due to the dangerous and difficult levels of the tasks assigned by the Council to the candidates. Hopefuls have been known to have failed the tasks and even lose their lives in the attempting.


LEITHE -

An intoxicating wine made from fermented honey mixed with the juice of the
purplish-green berries of the Elessan tree, which can only be found growing
in the Silvermarshes. Very potent and extremely popular brew around the
settlements of Northern Vardýnn.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
