Onweald (noun) — the continent where the fantasy book of Choices Meant for Gods takes place; I often refer to the whole fantasy world as Onweald when I'm speaking, which is a misnomer, but, hey…
Etymology: Sandy Lender created this word directly from the Old English "onweald," which means "power" or "possession," and, indeed, the government and leadership in the fantasy world of Onweald once was quite obsessed with power and possessing more power and wealth.
Word in a Sentence (from the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods): (Drake's speaking here) "She's going to help us take over the entire continent. I'll own and rule all of Onweald before she's done, and we can move on to Bellan."
Your turn! What sentence can you build with a word about power or possession?
"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
