To that extent, we have undertaken to compile a brief history in these pages, to be stored in both the Library and the Sanctuary. Said history will be expanded at need. This is, as all things must be, a work in progress. It is my great hope that further generations will continue to expand the work that I here begin.
With respect and honor,
The Shayara Primer will give you tons of background on Shayara, the Dasaroi themselves, and everything else you've been wanting to know - save, of course, for the Fall itself. From the birth of the Firstborn right up to the point our story begins, in fiction and "nonfiction" - the system of goernment and individual Houses, the evolution of language, the diaspora and return, politics, rebellion... the Purges.
And a PDF of it is free to Blogathon sponsors.
