Anraakh Books

Centuries before the Millennial War of Colours, Grdzneuli ruler Al’Anraakh connected to a star granting might over the sky, nature and ocean. He named the star Anraakh and detailed the linking method in a thick tome.

With the star’s power, Al’Anraakh raised flying islands during the Millennial War of Colours. Each served as his citadel, terrifying any land settlement they hovered above.

As the war waged on, Med'Hea deemed Al’Anraakh a powerful threat to Ayonerra. After an exhausting battle, Med’Hea gathered strength, split the Anraakh star in three and severed their link with the mage. Without his star, Al’Anraakh’s body aged rapidly. In his last moments, the king tore his book in three and scattered the pieces across Ayonerra.

For centuries, the books were sought after, as mages wished to gain Al’Anraakh’s power.

Sky Anraakh Book
Sky Anraakh’s Book
The first third has the original book’s cover and pages detailing how to link to the Sky Anraakh. It was safeguarded in Khaba’Ardia’s royal palace until Prince Reon Kin'Ghaard stole the book and fled his home.

The Sky Anraakh grants command over the skies, specifically thunder and winds. The linked mage can levitate by forming winds around themselves.

Sky Anraakh has limited control over oceanic winds, which are Ocean Anraakh’s domain.


Nature Anraakh
Nature Anraakh’s Book
The second third lacks both covers. It was deemed lost until a commoner Keke showed it to her sons, Adarnerse and Malkisaidek.

The Nature Anraakh allows the linked mage to grow plants and wooden puppets instantly upon touching the ground with their feet or hands. They can’t grow plants if there isn’t solid ground underneath.

The Anraakh-grown flora relies solely on the star for sustenance, with no need for water or nutrients.


The Ocean Anraakh’s Book
The last piece has the book’s final third and its back cover. It was kept in the Dayani kingdom’s royal library until Princess Qalethia stole it during Malkisaidek’s rebellion.

The Ocean Anraakh grants might over the oceans and oceanic winds. The linked mage freely controls the surrounding waters, making them a threatening opponent during any naval combat.

Thank you!   Al'Anraakh really tore it up.

I love the concept and the short explanations about the magic/mastery to be bound - but what about fire? Ah and always beautiful images :).

Stay imaginative and discover Blue´s Worlds, Elaqitan and Naharin.

Psst join the Copper-Party during Summer Camp 2024 and I would be very happy if you would celebrate my SC contributions with me.

Thank you!   Anraakh didn't grant control over fire. Fire and lava stagyars, also fire nikophsi can manipulate fire however.

Awesome art of both the pieces of the book and the Stars! I love the lore surrounding this one. What would happen if you reunited the books?

Thank you!   King Kole (the one Malk killed during the rebellion) wanted to do so and teach his son Joaqim all three books.   If someone is able to do it, they'll become as powerful as Al'Anraakh.
