WOT HISTORY I – KNOW MORE ABOUT THERIDOM
If you want to know some more abour WoT world, in this article we explain with some more detail the History of its kingdoms. It’s possible a novel to be written in the future, but we’ll see that with some time…

Theridom is now a big kingdom, with its great-walled cities, a lot of people, business and intrigues. Lords command – under king’s orders -, priests pray, support citizens and spread Theridas will. Merchants commerce with food, weapons, jewels or even some magic objects. And the enemy is also inside its walls, planning the way to destroy Theridom and everything that contains…
