Canno

Every great fantasy world needs lore! This is the central page for mine. Also, art, any other in-world media such as folklore, poetry, songs, and perhaps the odd short-story.

Lore Entries

Canno and the Age of Splendor  –Lost ages of glory are a fantasy favorite. Still, I promise you this one shines brighter than many. 
The Loar War
  –Canno’s peoples could’ve tackled a Dark Lord with little trouble–they often had! The Loar were another matter.
The Ton People
  –(Currently outdated but still enjoyable) Quarrelsome, towering, and stuck in bogs. Don’t laugh. The Ton are much larger than you are.
Cannoan Magic
   –High fantasy without a magic system is just a waste of time. Careful with this one: all paths to the wielding of it kill the unwary. Some merely make you suffer first.
–DATA EXPURGATED: DIAMOND ASCENDANCE–  An antagonist without –DATA EXPURGATED– is really just an agonist. Um… so hey check out –DATA EXPURGATED–
Cannoan Humans –Most high fantasy will give provide you exacting lore about how its humans are precisely the same as all other high fantasy humans. Mine… will not do that. It may, however, mentally unseat you.
The Sleepless Vigil –Quite possibly the most hands-on group of Inquisitors ever invented for the purpose of being in my writing. In-progress.
The Ton-Ga Knifestail –A ferocious and astonishingly lethal breed of vipers. Yet, perhaps there’s more to them than you’d think…
Thrays –An adorable, friendly, all-around-helpful bunch of amphibians. You will either love them or be wrong.
The Southern Ton-Ga Lungworm –It is the worst worm. There’s no debating it, not once you read up on it.

Short Stories:

Sonderhau — (unpublished for later rewrites) A living legend returns home, and attains a new state of self while confronting his past.
Dark Helm and Wing’d Spear” –(unpublished for later rewrites) Two ordinary people are swept up in the wake of an imposing, possibly crazed Inquisitor.

Art:

Art Gallery: A Most Immaculate Arming Sword –The trusty sword of an Apprentice Inquisitor. A simple but well-executed design, and thus one that holds up well against my more recent work.
Art Gallery: The Violet Torso-Cutter
–The elegant weapon of a faithful retainer. One of my older, and thus less-polished Cannoan pieces. Still reasonably successful, with a few texturing experiments vital to my later work.
–DATA EXPURGATED: BLOODSHED RADIANCE–
–For those who simply want to view –DATA EXPURGATED– combing through my worldbuilding.
Art Gallery: Skybleeder –The fabled relic-spear of House Lin, ornate yet deadly.
Art Gallery: The Wismeyer Longsword –A masterwork forged of purest sapphire-steel for a purpose as yet unrevealed.
