    “A mighty clash of heroes comes in the Last Days. Kitchen-boy, poetess, warlord, lost soul, three-pronged king, and dragon lord war for the Doom of the Cosmos.”

    I guess that the kitchen-boy is Beat Pot Aelwin, and that Jar-Eel is the poetess. But who are the others?

    Is Harrek the Warlord, and Argrath the Dragon Lord (or Godunya or the The Inhuman King)?

    Any ideas on the Lost soul, and the the Three-pronged king?

    Input from the Sages is welcome!

    I think warlord is Harrek, lost soul is Gunda, three-pronged king the Red Emperor, and dragon lord Argrath.

    In the original version (in Genertela: Crucible of the Hero Wars), the gloss went:

    Presumably the “King” of the legend is the Red Emperor, who wears a three-spired crown. “Poetess” may refer to Jar-eel the Razoress, who is already recognized as a Hero in the Lunar Empire. “Dragonlord: may refer to the Inhuman King. The other participants are as of yet identified

    There’s six titles and in the Dragon Pass Boardgame, both Sartar and the Lunar Empire had three heroes apiece. The Dragon Lord refers to Argrath rather than the Inhuman King as the latter was not as active in the boardgame. The lost soul refers to Gunda by elimination.

    Could the lost soul refer to Androgynous? His role in all this sure has been lost. She is as powerful as Harrek and Jar-Eel, but seemingly he does nothing but appear in the boardgame with nary a plot.
