Lore of Empire of Sonnstahl

Dating of the Sunna Cycle

Q: When was the Sunna Cycle put together?
A: Well, it’s not easy to be precise. Such works are rarely the work of a single individual, nor even a single lifetime. Collected from the verbal records passed down in story and myth, the Cycle unites the histories of those tribes which came together to form what is now Sonnstahl. The earliest versions were likely collated centuries after Sunna’s day, and your guess as to their accuracy is likely as good as mine. Those versions which are shared now have been reworked many a time since, some by well meaning Prelates, others at the behest of less savoury figures. I advise all my readers to read at least three editions before reaching any significant conclusions. A great deal of fine detail can be concealed within the broad brushstrokes of antiquity.
