Welcome to Volcor

9th Jun 2022 Legend Story Studios

Ahead of our triple-threat Uprising World Premiere weekend, we wanted to re-introduce you to the region of Volcor, and confirm the pronunciations of some of the characters and dragons in our latest set! The people of Volcor (VOHL-cawr) are divided between the Dracai (DRAH-kai) and the Volcai (VOHL-kai). The Dracai are bestowed names that are free of any restrictions, conventions or stigma, granted positions in the Royal Court of Volcor by the Emperor. The Volcai, however, are more limited, and their names are homogeneous, ending in ai as a mark of their Volcai origin status. (Names ending in ai rhyme with lie, my, bye.)

The dragons of Volcor invoked by Dromai in Uprising have a similar naming convention. Male dragon names end in ai, while female dragon names end in ia. (Names ending in ia rhyme with India, or Sylvia - within the world of Flesh and Blood, they rhyme with Ophidia, Azalea, Aria and Misteria, but not Levia, which is closer to rhyming with Fai.)
