Now travel back with us to where it all began...
"At Crydee, a frontier outpost in the tranquil Kingdom of the Isles, an orphan boy, Pug, is apprenticed to a master magician - and the destinies of two worlds are changed forever. Suddenly the peace of the Kingdom is destroyed as mysterious alien invaders swarm through the land. Pug is swept up into conflict but for him and his warrior friend, Tomas, an Odyssey into the unknown has only just begun. Pug's destiny is to lead him through a rift in the fabric of space and time to the mastery of the unimaginable powers of a strange new magic ..." (Magician synopsis)
The storm has broken, The Riftwar Cycle has arrived...
Magician,2 the first book of the Riftwar Saga, is where it all started in 1982, the beginning of an epic journey on the worlds of Midkemia and Kelewan. Here at Crydee you will find possibly the largest reference resource on Raymond E. Feist, his worlds and books, on the internet. We will endeavour to provide you with information on current and future books from across the globe as soon as it's known. There are sections containing the latest news and tour schedules, information about the games (paper, computer and online), art and photographs, interviews and forums, even an Encyclopedia and FAQ. On top of that, in the publication information, we have what is probably the most comprehesive bibliograpy of Raymond E. Feist's books available. There is even a section where Raymond E. Feist Talks about subjects that are of interest to him. If your not sure where to look you can try a search of the site, you never know what you may uncover, just like 'Jimmy the Hand'.
It is over 25 years since Magician was first released, and it is still as popular as ever, bringing new readers from around the world, as new countries take up the banner and publish the books in their own language.
We therefore proudly invite you from wherever you are, to explore Crydee, and discover facts and treasures you had yet to imagine. Like the 'King of Foxes' there are many burrows to meander through. Each burrow is connected by tunnels where you may aid a 'Daughter of the Empire' or be waylaid by 'The Kings Buccaneer'. When you complete your journey we invite you to return whenever you wish to further explore the site and make new discoveries.
2. There was a short story published before Magician, called Profit and the Grey Assassin, though Magician had been in the process of being written for some time.
