Dumarest's Travels

Here's a chronological list of all the worlds to which Dumarest travels in the novels, for anyone who wants to set fan fiction or a Traveler campaign in the Dumarest universe, or just has way too much time on their hands.

  1. Dumarest begins Book 1, The Winds of Gath, on a ship three days out from Gath (although he had booked passage to Broome and the destination was changed after he was aboard and frozen, traveling Low).  The book ends with Dumarest still on Gath contemplating the next step of his journey but no intended destination is mentioned.
  2. Book 2, Derai, begins on Kyle. Dumarest travels to Hive and from there to Folgone, where the story ends.
  3. Book 3, Toyman, begins and ends on Toy, with no mention of previous stops or intended future destinations.
  4. Book 4, Kalin, begins on Logis.  Dumarest and Kalin travel from there to Chron and then on to Solis.  Dumarest then travels from Solis to Hope, the headquarters of the Universal Brotherhood.
  5. Dumarest begins and ends Book 5, The Jester at Scar, on Scar, with no mention of previous stops or next intended destination.
  6. Book 6, Lallia, opens on Aarn, no mention of previous stops.  The Moray travels from Aarn to Hendris to Argonilla to Phane to Igar to Landkis to Oll to Krieg to Candara to Tyrann to Dreen to Ophan to Frone to Joy to Shrine.  The book closes with Dumarest booking passage on a pilgrim ship returning from Shrine to Thermyle.
  7. Book 7, Technos, opens on Clovis, no mention of previous stops.  Dumarest travels from Clovis to Loame, and from Loame to Technos.  Book closes with Dumarest waiting on Technos for his ship to depart for the planet Jalanth.
  8. In Book 8, Veruchia, Earl claims, apparently truthfully, that he went from Technos to Vington (no indication why he didn’t go to Jalanth as planned) to Onsul to Selend.  Dumarest travels from Selend to Dradea, where he remains at the end of the book with no immediate plans to leave.
  9. Earl begins Book 9, Mayenne, on a ship he boarded on Grill and which has since stopped at Frell, bound for Selegal and Ayette.  The ship is rescued by Tormyle between Frell and Selegal.  At the conclusion, Tormyle sends Earl to a planet which is not named, presumably in a different part of the galaxy.

  11. Earl begins Book 11, Zenya, on Paiyar, no mention of previous stops, and travels to Chard, where he remains when the story ends.
  12. Earl begins Book 12, Eloise, on Tynar.  the Cyclan deduce his destination upon leaving Chard would have been Eriule, from there to one of several agricultural worlds, then to Gokan, from where he would have gone to Narag or Guir, and from either one of those worlds, Tynar.  We can presume their deduction of the intermediate steps was accurate, since we know he started on Chard and ended up on Tynar.  From Tynar, Dumarest goes to Camollard, where he remains at the end of the story waiting for a ship.
  13. Dumarest begins Book 13, Eye of the Zodiac, on Tradum and travels to Mailarette.  From there he travels to Shajok; intermediate stops are implied but not listed.  He ends the story on Shajok about to seek passage off-world, and no specific destination is mentioned.

  15. Dumarest begins Book 15, Spectrum of a Forgotten Sun, on Hoghan and claims during a lie-detector test (which he passes) that he traveled from Elmish to Ragould to Hoghan.  Dumarest books passage on a ship bound for Malach, but the ship unexpectedly goes to Shallah instead.  From Shallah he goes to Emijar; it is mentioned that Dumarest visits at least three worlds between Shallah and Emijar, but they are not mentioned by name.  He ends the book on Emijar waiting for the ship on which he has booked passage to depart, without mentioning its destination.
