[SIZE=11pt]'Girawn, Sion, Calypho: Pain as Guide and Servant,’ by Velok of Toola, is semi-scholarly in tone and intent. It contextualizes and compares the Force legacies and philosophies of Regera Girawn, Darth Sion, and Calypho. The common element is insight on how to face and use one's own pain. Notably, Girawn and Calypho were also powerful visionaries whose visions were bound up inextricably with their pain. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]The book outlines ways for the average Darksider to use insights from these three traditions. A careful student might learn a good deal about controlling pain, sparking visions, mental and physical endurance, and personal sacrifice. The book emphasizes the need for commitment: one who commits to a course of study or action and sees it through will gain proportionately higher strength and insight. In layman's terms, you sow what you reap. Nevertheless, the book cautions against losing one's sense of proportion: both Girawn and Sion lost much of their humanity and judgment due to their unique relationships with the Dark Side.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Velok chose to write in both Ancient Sith (Kissai priestly dialect) and Basic. As Sith is an information-dense language, full of compact idioms, a page in Sith will typically include illustrations, while the facing page will comprise the Basic translation. [/SIZE]
