Hello, and welcome to the new-and-improved Legendarium!
What is the Legendarium, you ask? It's merely a place to keep the myths and legends of my conworld, Aytali. (Because creating and playing around with con-cultures is too much fun.) I decided to keep them all in one place instead of scattered about, for ease of organization, and so I didn't have to add a "Legendarium" note on each and every story. Hopefully these can be read without knowing anything about the cultures that originated them; mostly I'm writing them because they're fun to do.
