Word of the Day
Monday, June 25, 2007
Hrel Baine (proper noun) – In the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Hrel Baine is Chariss's benefactor as the story opens; he is the ofersey'n of the land of Saweyl; when the story begins, he is away at Golcondell helping his friend Lord Frenir Gint defend his lands from Lord Jamieson Drake's army

Etymology: Baine is a play on the word bane, as in this benefactor of Chariss's could be Lord Drake's bane; Hrel is just a nice Anglo-Saxon-sounding name that I liked

Word in a Sentence (this is the opening sentence to the Choices Meant for Gods trilogy): Lord Baine would not return.

Your turn! Because we learn so little of Lord Baine in the first book, I'll understand if no one out there wants to take a stab at a sentence with his name in it, but you could play with the word "bane" instead.

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
