The Adventurer’s Guide To Cygnet: Part 2

So here our journeys continue in the hills and vales of Cygnet. I am coming a long way back, and then, there’s the charming guide of Lumis as well by Elyan White. Really, nothing can beat such a collaboration! 🙂

We both agreed on a set of questions to create a visitor’s guide for passing tourists, so you’re welcome to embark on our adventures with us, if you think you can make the journey.

Here we go again!

6. Your favourite local legend there?

Oooh, legends! Our Quya Zkyeatto mythology is filled lots of myths and legends about perhaps each and every topic. There’s the Artist, the Dragon Boy, the Beetle Bard, the Rebel and so on!

I don’t know the legends of other cultures yet, but my favourite among ours is The Warrior’s Tale. It’s a tale about Homura, a Whatou prince, born physically weak about an ocean of courage and determination. He proves to us, that to become a warrior, you don’t have to kill, but to protect. He dies at the mere age of 12 but has a deep impact on every Quya’s mind.

7. Any unique creature there?

Hundreds and thousands! Each community has an array of mythical creatures… Well, I am not very much aware of others, but for us Zkyeatto, there’s a Kayoui (a weird cross between Werewolves and Vampires, I guess), the Ijins (small underwater creatures) and obviously the Dimyou (creatures who live in Lands of Death, unfortunately one of my closest friend is one such guy, Haruoeh? Did I just say close? No, he is not, not, not! *blushes*) “-”

8. A great mystery of your world?

Cygnet is shrouded in mystery. The most trending one among the Zkyeatto is the existence of those portals. Portals, yes, those odd creepy portals that can lead you to anywhere and everywhere in the universe. You may land in Eternal Frost Land (like Gou did) or Fluorine Kingdom, or where your wildest fancies take you. Remember, in Cygnet, anything can happen….

But personally, I am in doubt, how in the whole wide world Haruo has come from Dimyou Land to our neighbourhood and why is he always teasing me like that and peeping in my dreams and thoughts.

9. The most dangerous place there?

The portals, of course. No one knows where they can lead to, and if there’s a road leading back.

But to me, the most dangerous place is anywhere Haruo is. Awkward, isn’t he?!

10. Are there many different religions there?

Many! But the major religions are the communities I told earlier about.

A big thank you to everyone reading this and joining us!

Have a happy Sunday! ❤

Welcome To the Ijin World: Guest Post by Tatsuya

Hello, mates, Prince Tatsuya Tuorin here! My first own journey in the Den Of Dreams actually 🙂 I started this mostly for Crimson Prose, an silvery blogger, to whom I pledge my gratitude. Crimson, I was wondering what you may like until I realised that you like history and culture.

Now, dear mates, you are going to enter deep, deep below the seas, into coral kingdoms, to experience the legendary and magical creatures called Ijins… Hold your breath, there we go…

Ijins are really small creatures, barely 10 cm of height, and represent the 7 colours of the rainbow— Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red— and the 7 Special colours— Silver, Brown, Black, Grey, Gold, Turquoise, Pink. Each of the Special colours has a special purpose and own task to do. They travel on jellyfishes and sea horses and use the tiny little sea-shells (well, for them, sea shells aren’t tiny at all) as money. Do you see the coral all around? They are the houses and every building of the Ijin folks.

After every 7 months, there a festival, the main festival held for Ijins. It’s called the Feast and goes on for 7 days in the elegant royal place. Surely it’s fun! Even prisoners are released for enjoying these days. (I have been there once, and it was great fun! Next one is in October this year, you may join in too 🙂 )

Well, mates, today, for this post I’m in charge of comments. Feel free to ask any question! I would be more than happy, for, it is perhaps a once-a-lifetime occasion. 🙂

Have a silvery day ahead!
