The Matter of Manred is a cosmology. It is an ancient place of fantastic stories about marvel-filled adventures, and errant heroes of noble quality.

It is a land of dark magick and warfare. A land of danger and of new hope.

At its center is the Kingdom of Droma. And at the center of Droma is the royal clan of the Donnghaile.

The Matter of Manred is a modern-day Cycle in the medieval romantic tradition, linking together in theme, time, place, and plot all of the myriad stories that will be told in it.

These systems of kingship sound quite celtic. Not only in name but in some aspects  (e.g.: King is wed to the land). Did you get your inspiration there?

Wow. Impressive world building. Just ran my eye over it. I've just downloaded Hedge King in Winter to my kindle and preordered the next tale. Got a long book to read first, though. Already confusing myself with the Wattpad smorgasboard.

Did you make up these term/language or are you borrowing from some Celtic language? I learned a number of new terms here... tho I don't know how long they'll  stay with me... lol. I thought Manred was the place, but I see by the last sentence it's 'everywhere', 'here' and out there....
