Shining Stars and Cruel Curses

Sayings and Insults from Stardust Destinies Epic Fantasy Adventure with Romance stories

There are several sayings in the world of Stardust Destinies, some with sinister origins.

“May the Stars Shine Upon You.”

This saying is a farewell wish. It means the speaker is wishing the other safe travels and to remain protected.

The stars are spirits of magical beings who passed on through stardust into a different realm beyond. They can come down and guide others. It is said they guide them to protect them or help them discover truths — without revealing what they know, however, for it is up to the living to discover these truths themselves.

However, there was a time, long before recorded history, when a powerful being had so much malice and power, his magic cast a veil upon the sky and the stars were shrouded, unable to help or guide, unable to be seen, and the threat of utter destruction of the lands loomed in the air. It is unknown what happened to this being or how this being was defeated, but since then, anyone who wishes another well and safety, wishes for the stars to guide them, for as long as the stars shine, life and magic are safe.

A Dark Force Growing – Appendix 6 — Epic Fantasy Lore & History for Stardust Destinies

At the beginning of Kaulchèc History, as before, the Telorians had kings who ruled and looked after the land. They had no form of election, and the rulers were not chosen by bloodline. A Telorian was chosen to be King if he had great skill, if he was a powerful yet compassionate leader, and if he had a worthy heart. The wizards could look into their souls and determine whether a candidate was worthy or not.

Before being crowned, he would have to prove his worthiness to his people. He could choose to be king or to stay a great knight. There could also be Queens. Those who accepted the crown took good care of Teloria.

When the King or Queen was ready, they would pass on to the Portal, or, before the arrival of the Kaulchèc, they would resign their position to complete their training in wizardry. They could also come to a mutual understanding to let another rule before their time was up. A prince could be the next King if he chose to prove himself, or, if he remained Prince, he became the King’s aide, like in a Senate. The cycle went on for many generations.

Then one day, curiosity and doubt led to greed for power. No one had foreseen this. A polc was born convinced he could change the world. No one had found reason for this or words to describe it. This Telorian had been the first to question their faith. ‘If when in the Portal you become immortal and able to decide when to pass on to the stars, why not gain all the power from it and establish peace and immortality among all the lands?’ he would ask. ‘In this way, Telorians could see the entire world and conquer all the lands to be King over them all, and learn all about the other cultures without study.’

The Telorians had learnt from the Kaulchèc who had discovered the Portal that if one of them went through the Portal and returned in order to have power over all the lands, even if their intentions were good, it would be unfair to the others. The rule was: You pass on there if and when worthy and never return.

This polc grew up and ignored his doubts, but when he got married, he passed on his theories to his many children, putting doubt and curiosity in their minds. Their family name was Mittèlor. Quite a few family lines came from the Mittèlor line. Some understood the rule of the Portal, but others desired the knowledge and power the Portal could give them. One from this family became King Silovah Firlan Mittèlor. He was chosen by the Telorians, and proved himself worthy. Others in his family tried to prove themselves but they all desired the Portal.

The Portal – Where the Dragons Dwell — Epic Fantasy Lore for Stardust Destinies

The Portal lies deep within the Dragon’s Lair in the heart of the mountain Darakön. It is the portal into and from the celestial realm from where the dragons come and a source of great magic.

A Piece From Kaulchèc History

Before recorded history, the Kaulchèc came to the Great Ocean Valley and taught polcs how to utilise their magic in more powerful and practical ways. These Kaulchèc also discovered that if one enters the Portal, one can understand and master magic more powerfully. Upon reemerging from the Portal, one will be more powerful than any other.

To mitigate greed for power, Teloria’s rulers declared that one could only go through the Portal near the end of their life if they were already powerful enough in magic. In this way, that polc would die and become a star and not reemerge. Thus, the people of Teloria came to an agreement with the dragons who guarded the Portal.

However, greed for power overcame Bortah Mittèlor during King Silovah Firlan Mittèlor’s rule, and the king banished his brother and other members of his family from Teloria, in 2260 of Kaulchèc History. Eventually, fearing that greed would overcome him as well, Silovah Firlan left in exile, with many following him, and formed the small kingdom of Firlan Forest.

Over time, Bortah Mittèlor and his followers and new allies from the western islands, founded Morok, now known as Mork, with the goal to one day gain access to the Portal.

Kaulchèc History – Stardust Destinies Appendix 2

The Kaulchèc were a people very much like the Telorians. They were polcs, no doubt, physically the same except the Kaulchèc were shorter. A nomadic people, the Kaulchèc rarely settled down. They arrived in Teloria when travelling from the east to explore the west and felt at ease, so they lived a few years in the magical forest of Mistoff.

The Kaulchèc brought tangible magic to the Telorians and taught them how to use it. Before then, the Telorians were magical, but they did not exercise magic as strongly or as often. They focused on understanding and meditation, and used magic in healing and harvesting, and even prophecy, using herbs and stones to help make a ritual or prayer more meaningful and fulfilling.

The Kaulchèc introduced practical magic and the Telorians began to perform magic. They spoke a similar tongue, so the Kaulchèc created a new magic based on the Telorian language and showed the Telorians how to create their own as well. In this way, they passed on their wisdom.
