The Ferdiad Cycle
The Vod-hin were a mysterious race populating Drystan long before the rise of the Ellysian empire. Little is known about them as they left few ruins behind them containing anything of value. Surviving Vod-hin texts are exquisitely rare: an infinitely complex language carved on huge stone sheets of which the most famous is Feinn’s Wheel.
Little of the language has been understood and that tiny fragment has been used as the basis for the language of Arcanem, used by the wizards to shape their spells. No-one knows exactly what the Vod-hin were or what they looked like, only that they must have been at least seven feet tall and possessed terrifying magical abilities.
