After their long and arduous journey, the heroes were anxious to get to their homes. The long sailing voyage from Rajivik's tower went uneventfully, as did their respective overland journeys.
Aratelda Rinthong eventually patched up her differences with her father and the rest of the family. House Royal, the ruling family of Elves, took notice of her from the stories which were circulating of the epic deeds which the heroes had recently committed. They dubbed her with an official title, "Savior of the Elven People", and they gave her command of the standing elven army of T'Nanshi. Aratelda accepted her awards gracefully.
Soon after, other Ringthong family members who had affinities for the warrior way started to consult Arie for instruction. This displeased the more magically inclined family members who themselves were descended from the warrior Solerion Rinthon, a hero from the Great War. At some point in history the name was changed to Rinthong by the ruling sorcerers. This rift in the family eventually forced Arie and her followers to part with their magic using cousins and reform House Rinthon after a warrior's fashion. The two houses, Rinthong and Rinthon stayed amicable towards each other, but separate.
Andrinor took some time to get used to his newfound power. He went about his business of making himself known to the magic users on Avlis as well as building his realm on the plane of Ysgard.
Orianna journeyed immediately to Mikona, the capital city of M'Chek where she began assembling her own Rogue's guild. She ran into some early troubles carving out territory from the already existing guild in Mikona, but with the help of her contacts from the city of Andarr, including her old friend Derot Slimshadow, she managed to work out a nice living. Even her old mate Vanoviel Niltaurwen stayed in contact with her.
Vanoviel, charged with a sacred duty from her god, started construction of her order, The Champions of O'ma. She chose a small area in the northern part of T'Nanshi to construct her keep, which is eventually to be expanded into a castle, and even a town later. Her order was founded with the help of her old comrade Sarmon, the cleric of O'ma. He accepted a commission as a Champion and began training. Today he is one of the top members of the order and generally runs business in the keep when Vanoviel is away. The first batches of Vanoviel's Champions were sent in small groups to the border with M'Chek to oversee the battle against the humans. A few other small contingencies were sent northward and eastward.
Tupaia settled down in her home forest very close to Champion's Keep. She began to tend to the forest area around it as well as training some fledgling druids who began coming to her for knowledge. Eventually, her following developed into an order of druids working for O'ma. They watched over the forests of T'Nanshi and made sure that business with the Titanean fairies never got too much out of line.
Rynn stayed nearby Rajivik's tower in the Kurathene Empire. He felt it would be more interesting to spread his new tail in the north part of the continent. Thus from Rajivik's place, he went to Kuras, the capital city of the once renown Kurathene Empire. He makes his living to this very day singing about his epics in the local taverns.
Jade went to T'Nanshi along with Van, Ari, and Tupaia. However, she journeyed to the capital city and retook her position in the government as a foreign ambassador. She requested a position far far away from Mikona.....
