This is the series prequel to the Aberddu Adventures Series - giving an overview of the much talked about Summer of Fire:
To speak of a time before the Summer of Fire, a time truly before the cacophony of events that chose to confluence in those short months is to speak of a time more than four hundred years gone by. Very few have a genuine understanding of what lead to the time known as the Summer of Fire, of the rising powers that had grown with the patience of mountains, over centuries. Only in looking back could scholars completely understand the full scale of events that preceded it.
It is particularly difficult to distinguish what came 'before', as this is a relative term. Each individual will have a point in time that they consider to be the time 'before', after which their life will have irrevocably changed. General consensus suggests that by 1099 AC it was already too late, but for some, it started long before that.
