The Feuer-Marke Saga is a Fantasy Sage written by Indy Brown. The story is set in the world of Adar'il on the continent of Zicil, following the journey of the Exiled warrior Edami to find the legendary Firebrand, the sword to relenquish sins and to rejuvenate the soul's pure self. He has to do this in time to return to the great city of Atias, the heart of the world, in time to slay the beast in the Eldritch Catacombs beneath in the sewers. He does this while racing against the tides of time and gods to make way to slay the Exiled Beast, Yugoroth.
The setting of the story, Adar'il, is a world "Caught in the crosswind of space and time, being the playground of gods and the Spiritual Home of Magic". It consists of Three Major continents and four major Oceans. The continent on which the story takes place, the continent of Zicil, is the second largest continent in the world and the most populous.
The continent is currently ruled by the Atian Faith, a large Church that holds the knowledge of the great God Clostus, the God of Creation. Ruled by Saons, Highest of the Church Priesthoods, the world bows to their supreme knowledge and their leadership. As they control the world, a Resistance movement against the church called the Los Angelos plot their downfall and prepare for their destruction.
Even though ruled by the Atian Faith, the land is divided into Seven Nations. The nations are Togur, Phun, Atias, Logann, Zicilia, Weyrias, and Feuerias. The leaders of these nations all meet with the Saons in a place called The Tomb of Aderas, The Judge-God. There they hear council from the High Saon, the chosen of the Saons to guard the Eldritch Catacombs, to keep Yugoroth Sealed and to Uphold the Knowledge laid down by Clostus.
The people govern themselves among City-States and through the power of City Councils who meet with their nation rulers every three years. Also, the people distinguish themselves by belonging to a guild of some sort.
There are Five Major Guilds known so far from the novels and they are: The Golden Eagle Guild, The Crowcraft Guild, The Guild of Arts, The Ravener's Guild, and The Red Flag Guild. Each representing their specific Jobs of a person.
