The Legend of the Niris

Listen on Spotify!

In the land of Sunder, there lives a creature – an avian beast which dominates the skies and seas. The Klyft, an icy, virulent body of water bordering Sunder’s western coast, is home to these impossibly aquatic birds, called the Niris. Their young travel from expansive Eggyards in Andar, across the Klyft, and come to rest at Sunder’s edge. Their mothers pluck the eggs from the sea and store them in giant nests tucked in hollows of deadened trees atop the highest cliffs. When night falls, the eggs glow with an ethereal light – warm, spherical hues of muted salmon and azure.
