The planet upon which most of Lone Wolf's adventures take place. It is much like our own more mundane world but filled with magic, deeds of valor and a very clearly defined difference between Good and Evil. It is in fact the balance point of the struggle between Good and Evil in Aon.

It is divided between Northern and Southern continents and is filled with wonderous places to visit and interesting people and creatures to meet and defeat.

A Shianti who was a close friend and teacher to Grey Star.

Massacre of the Kai
On the morning of the Feast of Fehmarn MS 5050, the Darklords attacked the Kai monastery with a flying horde of kraan carrying other vile servants of Naar. Zagarna attacked from the East exactly the opposite of what the Kai expected. For years, the Kai monks had set watch facing towards the West and the Durncrag Mountains. Though they fought with bravery, the Kai were overcome by sheer numbers. Only one Kai survived the massacre. Silent Wolf had been sent to chop wood and thus was the only Kai outside of the monastery when it was attacked. He saw the plight of his fellows and ran to help in the struggle but was struck by a low tree branch and fell unconcious.

When he awoke, he was the last of the Kai. He vowed vengeance «c» against those who had destroyed his comrades, took the name Lone Wolf and began his quest.

A town south of Toran. Meadowood was closed by a group of Border Rangers after the Massacre of the Kai. An agent of the Darklords (probably a Helghast) had invaded the town and terrorized the people.
Food. A Kai monk or anyone else could expect to lose 3 EP if they skipped a Meal. The Hunting discipline can help a Kai Lord to provide for himself in the wilderness.
A Kai discipline. A Kai monk with this discipline is able to use his Mindforce to attack his enemies in addition to normal, hand-to-hand combat. This ability results in a +2CS advantage over those that are susceptible to this discipline.
The concept of Mindforce is an integral part of Joe Dever's creation. Mindforce is the ability of creatures (including humans) to influence and perceive the world through the use of concentration. It is manifested in the Kai disciplines of Mind Over Matter, Mindshield, Mindblast and Sixth Sense and their equivalent Magnakai and Grandmaster disciplines.
Mind Over Matter
A Kai discipline. This discipline enables a Kai to move small objects with his Mindforce.
A Kai discipline. Many creatures are able to use Mindforce as an offensive weapon. Mindshield helps protect a Kai Lord from this form of attack.

It was returned to the Daziarn at the time of the banishment «c» of the Shianti.

The years on Magnamund are counted from the moment of the creation of the Moonstone. MS is an abbreviation for "M"oon"s"tone. If the year appears previous to "MS" (i.e. 5000 MS) then it is the number of years counted backwards from the creation of the moonstone. If it appears after "MS" (i.e. MS 5000) then it is the number of years counted from the moonstone's creation.
