The inspiration to write Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht came to Reverend Loveshade in Janus County. The reverend was in hiding from The Agents of Greyface on a friend's small farm when he had a dream vision on Mid Year's Day, 2 July 2005 CE (37 Confusion 3171 YOLD). The vision inspired him to begin the book which makes several references to the county.
