 "Lyr desperately needed a king and, struggle though he might, Rogan Kayle knew it was right he be chosen. His bond to the Skylords and growing tales of his brave deeds made him loved by the people as well as respected by his men. But to become king, Lyrish law demanded one must possess the wisdom passed down from one ruler to the next; the secret to Lyr’s magical defences. With the former king dead, Rogan was forced to pursue the secret at its source, where the first monarch was said to have uncovered it.

The Riddle of Gnaur, he who had stored the wisdom of power within magical crystals, was said to only be revealed to those who were at one with magic.

But the Cult who guarded Gnaur’s secrets and controlled his Stonekin servants would not give up the knowledge without a struggle."

— The Aedai Chronicles

Every child knew about the riddle of Gnaur. In the whispering halls of the Ymian library, Moon had read all about the rebellious dwarf who had woven his wisdom into crystals. Ultimately, Jorne had turned him to stone along with his brethren.

She found it hard to believe that a Lyrish king had unravelled the arcane secret of Gnaur and used it to build a fabled magical defense around his city. The Lyrish had always been straightforward in martial matters.
