Scene-Setting And So On
On p. 7:
unfamiliar geographical names - Kettleback Fell, Brann's Dale, Skara River, Dumethdin;
Clan and Lodge emblems tattooed on faces;
men addressing each other as "oath-brother";
a viewpoint character called "Torrek," which means "stranger," because he looks different from everyone else and cannot account for his parentage;
an unfamiliar astronomical (?) term, "...all folk under the Rings..."
A humanly habitable but ringed planet within our universe has to be extrasolar or in the far future or both. Is this just an imaginary world or a future extrasolar colony or a result of planetary engineering within the Solar System? What will p. 8 disclose?
