For the third year in a row I've won NaNoWriMo. I had hoped to have a lot more done but various things killed my motivation during the month. I'm really proud of myself that I managed it once more. Although one day I'll do it without a mad rush on the last day.
Final Word Count: 50,077 words

The world created by the Three is based on a divine harmony that permeates everything in creation. In this harmony there is a hidden melody that if played at the gates to the heavenly realm will cause them to open and admit the player to the realm. Within that realm stands a fountain flowing with golden water, one who drinks this water will be granted one wish.
The knowledge of this melody has long since been lost and now, thousands of years after the creation of the world, discord is ravaging the divine country of Tria, where the gates to the heavenly realm are said to reside. Its citizens are possessed by a madness, causing them to attack anyone and anything in a blind frenzy. Through this a mysterious cloaked woman possessing an ancient wooden flute walks, seemingly unaffected by the discord and ignored by the raging Traians around about her.
Laynya Macrows, a recluse living in the distant highlands of Tria, finds herself drawn into the situation as the secrets of her origins and her father's pendent catch up with her. She is a Chosen of the Three, her blood mixed with the golden waters of the Divine Fount and inheritor of a sacred blade said to contain the full harmony of the world in its blade. Together with Narin Ankrage, Chief of Queen Velna of Traia's guard, another Chosen, she must bring harmony back to her country and discover just what is causing this discord and the identity of the mysterious golden messenger directing her actions.
