Welcome to the World of Torlenth!

Okay, folks. It's time to put a new face on the Torlenth book set and you can help. We are holding a contest for the new cover art for 'The Chronicles of Torlenth -- Ruins to Enclave -- Book One of the Starstone Canyon Trilogy.' As we get entries, we will post them here. We will factor in the number of Likes and the number and type of comments a piece gets as we go forward with the judging.

The winning artist will receive one free copy of the book in their favored eBook format bearing their artwork, as well as one free copy of each book as they come out. On top of that, the winning artist receives, at the time of confirmed sale at, $500.00 (five hundred and 00/100 dollars) once 'The Chronicles of Torlenth -- Ruins to Enclave' reaches one thousand (1,000) units sold.

A History of Torlenth

It has been over ten thousand years since the final throes of the Great War when the world of Torlenth had faced a seemingly endless global civil war.  The Great War’s origins came from the slaying of Dowser, the last chaos dragon and First Follower of Ortrekth, the prismatic god and creator of all dragon-kind.   Endareth, the phoenix-winged god, flayed and cast into the Great Void Etyrnys his own brother Ortrekth for the crime against his own First Acolyte.  Having reacted thus to the slaughter of Dowser, Endareth had caused a schism in the pantheon and forced the gods into a state of non-interference regarding the lives of their own followers.  During those many years, however, a sect of Ortrekth’s followers, cursed to bear markings similar to those of their now-skeletal deity, have sought out ways to bring their dragon god back to the power he had held before being cast down by Endareth.

            Deep below the dwarven stronghold of Starstone Canyon, a mythical metal has been unearthed.  A natural stabilizer for magical energies, which had fallen awry at the very end of the Great War, the metal is the very tool that the followers of Ortrekth need to release their god from his eternal prison.  To do so, the followers of Ortrekth forge an uneasy alliance with the various bestial races of Torlenth to lay siege to Starstone Canyon

in order to secure their possession of the metal.

            A small band of warriors, led by a druid with no memory of his past, make an effort to thwart the bestial hordes from taking Starstone Canyon, unaware of the metal and the ancient evil they have crossed in their endeavor.
