The Star Stone — (1995-1996) Publisher: Ohearn was a simple man, big and strong and kindly, respected among his Biri clansmen. Then fate — and the Ulin, who were all but gods — intervened, and Ohearn’s life, his clan, and his very world changed forever. The Ulin were the Elder Race, giants, unspeakably powerful in arms and in magic. All were selfish; most were tyrants who scorned the short-lived Younger Races: men, elves, and all the rest. Some capricious Ulin sported with mankind; one among their number, Ulahane the Red, dedicated himself to reaping a harvest of human terror and anguish. Only one among the Ulin, Lomallin, stood opposed to Ulahane and his schemes. Lomallin gathered some few like-minded allies and worked to protect the human creatures, to teach them and nurture their talents. Inevitably, Ulahane and Lomallin became deadlocked in their struggle. It had been prophesied that one day Lomallin could win — but to triumph, he must first die. Until then, the contest for the fate of the Younger Races would be fought by humans who served the Ulin… Ohearn knew little of the world beyond his clan. But when his wife fell ill and Ulahane’s lackeys detained the shaman who could help her, Ohearn’s path became clear. He led a band of warriors against the enemy stronghold. With the half-elf trickster Lucoyo at his side, Ohearn wrested the wise man from the Scarlet One’s prison — and launched a battle whose scope he could never have anticipated. The beacon of freedom flared, and its flames would sweep forest and prairie, cities and towns, mountains and deserts and all the farthest lands. But the cost of freedom would be high indeed, for Ulahane proved to be an implacable foe. He was determined that either Lomallin’s human charges would be annihilated — or Lomallin himself would die!
