Riverbender is the honorific given by The Sister’s Regulars to those who have successfully defied the will of The River Without End and thereby forced the rebooting of reality into its next iteration. And yet, most who have earned the title come to resent it and all that it stands for.


Why? Because the one who bends the river always survives The Calamity which they cause—and every Calamity thereafter—cursed to see how their new, wished-for reality plays out.


And the wished-for realities of every other Riverbender who comes after them.

Magical, Honorific

You did not lie it was a short one :p I think although it is short, it does give the necessary information it needs. Perhaps you could still add how people feel towards them knowing what they have done?

Oh, I like that suggestion. Will definitely think about that. Not that many people know about them, in the grand scheme of things, but it could definitely be interesting to discuss what the people who *do* know think.

I love how short and concise this article is.

Thanks so much! Yeah, I tend to like this length for my own stuff I need to reference often. Doesn't win me many awards—people tend to like longer stuff—but that's not my ultimate goal. :-)
