The Map of Rendaraia
The Eternals of Gaia
The Eternals are the original ten elemental spirits who seeded Gaia—the greater realm that encompasses both Terra and Rendaraia—with life. Throughout history, the Eternals have chosen mortal beings as hosts, granting them vast elemental powers in exchange for sharing their physical form.
The Eternals protect the balance of life and guide the developing wisdom of sentient creatures. The mortals chosen as hosts become part of the Eternals’ immortal existence, and they play an important role in many Children of Gaia storylines.

Rendaraian Fae Photomanipulations
Throughout Rendaraia live many varied fae cultures. From the Great Nations to the countless smaller Tribes, some of which work with the great nations in the spirit of collaboration, while others choose to remain in isolation. A few even raid and loot in the spirit of competition. From this plethora of cultures, multimedia visual artist Jayel Draco has created photomanipulations featuring models wearing his handmade costumes. With digital effects and backgrounds composited together from many various photos taken during his own excursions into the wilds, he’s created magical imagery of what some of these characters might look like.
Rendaraian Fae Costume Design
To capture the rich diversity of peoples and cultures on Rendaraia, Jayel Draco has created lavish costume designs to demonstrate what many of our characters might look like. Working with real-life models and photomanipulation, Jayel has created astonishingly detailed images of characters in their natural environments.
This forthcoming project will bring the people and landscapes of Rendaraia to colorful life. In the meantime, check out a few of the costumes he’s created and stay tuned for more.
COG: The Great Nations of Rendaraia
The Great Nations of Rendaraia have stood for centuries as strongholds of culture, magic, science, and military strength. When, one by one, the Nations mysteriously fall—each destroyed in a day, with no word or warning—the intrepid scholar Jan’Ka’Zian sets out to record a complex network of intertwined cultures on the edge of destruction. Jayel Draco’s gorgeous illustrations present a vivid picture of elaborate cityscapes and mountain vistas, vast skyfaring fleets, and fantastic flora and fauna.

COG: War & Horses
Written by Peter Lampasona, with illustrations by Chris Covelli and Jayel Draco, and editing by Lynsey G., War & Horses is a dime-store-western-style narrative rich with action.
Deep in the dustbowl of the newly formed People’s Republic of Draven, the old aristocracy coexists with a new government in an uneasy peace that’s often broken by conflict. Famine and drought wrack the once-fertile region—and violence is a spark to dry grass. In the midst of the chaos walks a shadowy figure: the Triggerman. The only sure thing about him is that he leaves a trail of chaos in his wake. Following that trail is writer Landon Ford, documenting the Triggerman’s exploits and digging for the truth of his identity. War and Horses is Ford’s work: a series of dime-store novels, popular in Rendaraia and Terra alike. But the Triggerman is very real—and his true purpose may become the story of Ford’s life.
