Tales Of Gallanol

The earlier tales and history of my fictional world, based in the continent of Gallanol,where two cultures or civilisations (or more) come together and clash, changing each other in the process. Gallanol is an ancient and developed culture with a developed economy, a confederation of Kingdoms in one High Kingdom. Martainia and the Martans are a relatively barbaric warlike people who have recently colonised lands on the borders with Gallanol.
I wrote this story or tales back in the 1980's and early 1990's. Maybe I will continue them soon.
