The Book of Orchids
The Book of the Orchids, also known as the Book of Orchids, is a very important piece of Elwynnese cultural lore which originates in Treesia and was written by Sagart Siskind of the Treesian Unorthodox Church. It is a collection of narratives which detail the Creation of the Universe and the History of the World focusing, aside from some mention of Treesian and Micran heroes, on the Treesian Gods and other supernatural beings of the Treesian Unorthodox faith. In Elw, the book is called Ivor Rellenai; in Farewellish, the name of the book is Vitliljobook; and in Froyalanish and Wintergleamish, the book is known as Vitliljobók.
In the Flower of the North, the Book of the Orchids is nowadays universally considered by any and all members of the Elwynnese Nation to be authentically and eternally Elwynnese – in spite of there being no shortage of evidence to the contrary. It is one of the ancient writings which provides the Elwynnese Nation with a common, overarching culture for the quite disparate country that the Jewel of Many Facets is, and therefore unquestionably an inherent part of the Elwynnese Commons.
The Oeuvre of Soreaa Isurui
The Saint is a TV series where Duke Harald deals with threats to his Ducal Realm, including the brutal suppression of the Brotherhood of Lest as well as making short work of various other thugs and bandits.
The Falcon and the Lioness
The Legend of Tuuler
The Legend of Tuuler is an Elwnet series about the life of the Lady Tuuler Kalir.
The Legend of Björka
Knights in Shining Armour
Knights in Shining Armour is an Elwnet series about the Elwynns Riddare and their heroic fight against Raynor I.
The Legend of Esther
The Legend of Esther is a series distributed via the Elwnet about the life of the Lady Esther Ayreon-Kalirion. The first series received a generally negative reception but avoided cancellation owing to royal patronage. Improved characterisation and a change of actress in the title role led to an increase in audience figures. Critical opinion remains divided.
The Duel of Princes
The Duel of Princes is an Elwnet broadcast pulp serial about the antagonisms within the the Kalirion Family that gave rise to the Coordinated State. Specifically the series focuses on the frustrations of Daniel Simrani-Kalirion in trying to rule the Elwynnese Union whilst serving, however nominally, the errant and wandering Prince Nathaniel.
The first season of the series was broadcast on the Elwnet under the title of The Same Old Story. This name was changed after the producers received a visit from Isabella Simrani-Kalirion, who now acts as a consultant and non-executive producer for the show. An experimental live performance of the 39th episode was notoriously interrupted by an Elfinshi Fury activist breaking on to set and stabbing the actor who played Tokaray al-Osman.
Production of the fifth season is currently on hold whilst the scripts are re-written and negotiations with the cast and crew, who are now demanding 'danger money', are ongoing.
The Wonder Years
The Wonder Years is a TV series about the 1st Babkhan Era. The wonder was that the show ever got commissioned after its woeful pilot episode - The Torturer's Apprentice.
The Iron Brigade
The Iron Brigade is a TV series about the War of Jeremy's Nose.
The Most Glorious War
The Most Glorious War is a TV series about the War of Vengeance.
Tuuler and Björka in the 25th Century
Tuuler and Björka in the 25th Century is a TV series about Tuuler Kalir and Björka Hnossdóttir who have both, due to a freak time mishap, ended up in 25th Century Elwynn - a blasted wilderness and wasteland infested with Zombots, revenants and myriad mutated abmoninations, where the human population, outside of a few utopian cities ruled by the perpetually naive Congress of Rics, has dwindled away in the face of a nameless and unspoken catastrophe.
Bravely, the intrepid duo attempt to shake the degenerate heirs of humanity out of their languid fatalist torpor and to revive in them a love of the (silent and forgotten) old gods and a will to once more assert the long vanished human supremacy over Micras.
For a story about two essentially Froyalanish folk-heroines, the show has proved remarkably popular amongst the Babkhi, Elw and Norse communities. There is perhaps a feeling that the drama, ostensibly a shallow science-fiction fantasy, is in some way prescient regarding the potential dangers faced by humanity as a consequence of the changes manifest in Lichbrook and Minarboria.
I Play Dead... It Stops the Hurting
Alice in Lichesland
Alice in Lichesland is a TV Series about a human girl who is called Alice Isurui and her joyous and jolly adventures among the Liches, Singers and various other sentient beings in Lichbrook and Minarboria. The series was, with the Leave of King Noah of Elwynn, commissioned by Kaiser Hjalmar by means of Imperial Decree 799 to promote harmonious relations between the various sentient beings of the Lands of the Golden Mango Throne and beyond.
The H-Team is a TV Series about about a fictional special police unit consisting of Cudgellers and Longships Guards who take on hateful insolent ingrates who attempt to cause disharmony between the various sentient beings of the Flower of the North. The series was, just like Alice in Lichesland and also with the Leave of King Noah of Elwynn, commissioned by Kaiser Hjalmar by means of Imperial Decree 799 to promote harmonious relations between the various sentient beings of the Lands of the Golden Mango Throne and beyond.
The Elwynnese Commons were once memorably described to the hapless Shirerithian ambassador to Minarboria by an aide to Royana Dolordotch, who was noted for his lack of tact and easily challenged sobriety, as essentially boiling down to "one unreadable religious text, a slew of godawful poetry and a random sampling of Byeday television serials. Now I'm not saying that you've escaped from a sterile cultural desert, but really...". The comments were naturally disavowed by all present at the gala occasion and the individual in question was hastily reassigned to other duties.
