The Sapphire Gate

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Jacob Wendel

Welcome to the kingdom of Falos, and the fair city of Sien Sontetan. Here lies the Sapphire Gate and the twin towers of Anidir, guarding the only waterway between the Sea of Mists and the lands of the Two Lakes. To mortals this place is known as the Strait of Dreams, while the Haben refer to it as the Passage of Time, for on this side the empires of midnells, elves and men flourish and fall, while beyond lies the Eternal Lands, where the Haben people live out their immortal lives in peace and prosperity. Today little more than rubble remains of this ancient city, and the once great kingdoms beyond are but lifeless deserts, haunted by the memories of their former splendour. Yet the ruins still serve to remind all who seem them that everything has an end, and that the golden age of this world we live in has long since passed. The Sapphire Gate of Sien Sontetan. 2B pencils, then computer edited, Jan '03
