EDIT: Just thought I'd mention that there will be four "narrators" of the epic - four different points of view that we'll see. As they're revealed I'll bold their link. One has been revealed so far - who could the other three be?
>>As of Chapter 1, two more narrators have been revealed!
>>And with Chapter 2 now up, all four narrators are known!
