Welcome to the Chronicles of Sahenda!
These stories have lived in my head (and my notebooks) for some 20 years now. The genesis of them goes back even further – in my mid-20s I began writing short stories about a people who were the precursor to Clan Sahenda, focusing on the adventures of two brothers. My mom eagerly devoured every story I wrote, and looked forward to the day I finished them. Unfortunately, she passed before I could finish and I put the stories away for many years. Across those years and through several moves, I no longer have them. But I remembered the spirit of the world I created, and used it as the basis for these Chronicles.
And so I share them here. I have let many of my experiences with role play, storytelling and gaming guide and color these stories. In some cases, elements of the Clan ways take inspiration from a handful of ancient cultures. I hope that I have presented those elements with reverence and love.
I also want to tip my hat to an old friend who’s own stories gave me a great deal of inspiration. I don’t know where you are or where your path has taken you, Pattie Gail, but wherever you are I hope your feet have found the stars you loved.
