Ryoch. An invention perhaps. A false god created by the enemy to conceal Drachar’s return and the fulfilment of the Prophecy.
Shaol. A guardian spirit in the form of a sixth sense. For most people the link with their shaol is weak. You might experience a feeling of déjà vu. In some situations – an uncertain feeling of danger. A shaol is likely to be an ancestor, hence the link is going to be weak as it may be a distant great grandfather or such.
