Giants and Bloodguard are typically immune to this power, and there are no known instances of a Raver possessing a Ranyhyn. Their greatest hatred is reserved for the trees of the One Forest of old, and their loathing of the Earthpower and all good things has led them to become Lord Foul's willing servants.

The Despiser is somehow able to enhance their abilities when he pleases, but can prevent them from possessing individuals he deems too powerful. They were not allowed to possess Thomas Covenant, for instance, because his ring would make them too powerful for Lord Foul to control.

This possession can be, and in some cases needs to be, facilitated by some external power. In the 'Illearth War' the Ravers were only able to possess their giant 'hosts' when they worked in harmony with the power of the Illearth Stone. They often serve as leaders in Lord Foul's armies, or as spies among his enemies.

Stonedownors are humans descended from the Land's original inhabitants. They are known for their knowledge of stone lore and live in stone huts.

A master of stone lore is called a "Gravelingas", or a Rhadhamaerl which also refers to the craft of stone lore. Stonedownors are typically dark-skinned, squat and muscular, though this is not always the case. Trell and Triock are both unusually tall for Stonedownors.

During the Second Chronicles, their leaders are known as Gravellers, and sacrifice members of their village to use the blood to call forth the power of the Sunbane. Sunder, the Graveller of Mithil Stonedown, manages to use the power of Loric's Krill to summon forth the power of the Sunbane without shedding blood, and learns to manipulate the Sunbane for his own purposes. Ur-viles are creatures of jet black color and are constructions of an extinct race named the Demondim. They are highly magical, possessing a number of supernatural abilities, including shooting acid, creating bolts of pure energy and the like.

They are blind, lacking any form of visual organ, but possess a preternatural sense of smell. One of their most distinctive features is that when assembled in a wedge formation, the leader or loremaster at the apex wields the combined power of the entire group, without weakening any of their kin in the rest of the wedge.

The ur-viles initially served Lord Foul, but later turned against him by creating the creature Vain from which the new Staff of Law was created.

In The Runes of the Earth , the ur-viles have actively joined the side of "good", though their motivation remains unclear. Because they were made rather than born, the ur-viles loathe their own bodies and often redirect this rage towards other targets.

They also do not die, except when killed, or reproduce naturally, although they do retain the lore required to construct more of their own kind and the Waynhim—however, their motivations for doing so are unlike those of natural creatures.

Viles are an extinct race who spawned the Demondim. They were non-corporeal, but nonetheless very powerful. Initially a proud and gifted race, they were led into self-hatred and despair by the Ravers. Waynhim are another race of creatures spawned by the Demondim often referred to as the "accidental" or "lesser" creations, in contrast with the ur-viles. They closely resemble the Ur-viles having no eyes, super-sensitive smell and hearing, and magical abilities , though they are smaller and lighter in color.

Like the Ur-viles who are their long-standing nemeses , the Waynhim were made rather than born. However, they do not share their cousins' self-hatred, and have dedicated themselves to serving the Land and the Earthpower according to their own peculiar ethical system, the Weird of the Waynhim.

Like the Ur-viles, they fight in a wedge formation with a loremaster at the apex. Woodhelvennin are humans descended from the Land's original inhabitants. They are known for their use of wood lore and living in tree-top villages.

The village elders are called Heers. A master of wood lore is called a Hirebrand, or a lillianrill. Lillianrill usually refers to the craft of wood lore. They are typically fair-skinned, tall and slender. Andelain is a focal region of the Land, where the Earthpower is especially strong.

In the Second Chronicles it is the one place immune from the Sunbane, as it is protected by the Forestal Caer Caveral. Human inhabitants of the Land together with Giants, Cavewights, and the human inhabitants of other regions of the Earth all appear to speak modern English, though their style of speech is usually rather formal and archaic. The strange commonality of language between Covenant and the Land's inhabitants is never addressed in the books.

There are, however, other languages extant: Non-humans also have their own languages, for example the barking speech of ur-viles and Waynhim, the Giants' florid and ornate language, and the native tongue of the Haruchai.

In the Second Chronicles it is explained that the Giants received "the gift of tongues" from the Elohim as a reward for the telling of a simple tale, and the Bhrathair , a people who live on the edge of the Great Desert, also speak their own language, which is described only as sounding "brackish".

In the cosmology of the Land, the Earth's core consists of a coiled-up serpent called the "Worm of the World's End". When Covenant attempts to sever a branch of the One Tree by using the power of the white gold, he risks rousing the Worm which is not fully asleep, but merely resting and thus destroying the Earth.

The Waynhim and Ur-viles believe in a principle of ethics or destiny called the "Weird". The Elohim have a concept which appears to do duty for both these beliefs: Law is the natural order; a body of principles which defines and governs the way in which the world works. Some parts of the Law conform to the scientific laws of the real world: Other aspects of Law are unlike the real world.

Chief among these is the accessibility of Earthpower. Another important difference is that Law is not inherently inviolable.

Acts of thaumaturgy can create phenomena which do not conform to Law. In some instances, the violation of a Law can cause that law to stop operating altogether, which results in a major shift in the nature of the world.

The novels have discussed three Laws in detail: The Law of Time is the most basic and fundamental aspect of Law: It requires that instants and events proceed in an orderly fashion from cause to effect. The consequences of all actions must be borne. Although a later action might reverse the effects of an earlier one, those effects and the earlier action itself cannot be made to have not been.

Any attempt to alter past events risks creating a paradox, which would destroy the structure of time, taking the entire Earth with it. In the Thomas Covenant stories, Donaldson takes several terms from Sanskrit that are significant in Hinduism and Buddhism and reassigns them meanings in the Land. For example, the term moksha , which in Sanskrit refers to liberation from the cycle of sorrow, is given as the original name for a creature of depravity and evil called a Raver.

The third Raver, Kinslaughterer, is called turiya , Sanskrit for a state of pure consciousness.

Donaldson has commented on his website that moksha, samadhi, and turiya are ways the Ravers describe themselves, while their other names are given by others. Donaldson repeats this application of Sanskrit terms to seemingly unrelated aspects of the Land to other terms, including: The Chronicles also contain names of Semitic origin.

The name of the fairy race of Elohim is the Hebrew for God. The first volume in the series was included in David Pringle 's book Modern Fantasy: The Best Novels. Conversely, in , David Langford published an essay by Nick Lowe , in which Lowe suggested "a way to derive pleasure from Stephen Donaldson books. Needless to say, it doesn't involve reading them.

Lowe describes it as a "fast" game — "sixty seconds is unusually drawn out". In , scholar W. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant: Variations on the Fantasy of Tradition.
