On Good-byes

“In a way, I’m glad that I slept through the Reckoning.  After everything I’d been through, I don’t know if I could have handled it.  I don’t mind that I missed the appearance of the Balance.  By Deridean, I’ve seen enough of it in my time, though I’d liked to have seen the Herald and the Primals.  My biggest regret was not saying goodbye to those I loved.  You have to understand, Jerilyn, it was different back then.  These were people I’d shared many lifetimes with.  We’d laughed, we’d cried, we’d loved and we’d survived.  To awake and find them gone was like losing part of myself.  Thank Finbardin Velora decided to stay behind.  I don’t know what I’d have done without her.”  Kandol Elf Lord

On Nammydan

“My father?  History has not treated my father well, Jerilyn.  Sandwiched between Grandfather’s exploits and my own oft-exaggerated accomplishments, his deeds did not weather well the tests of time.  Consider also his brothers.  It is not so easy to stand tall amidst legends.  ”  Kandol Elf Lord
