Skara - The Blade Remains

  • Kharn Signature

    Fear comes from the belly.
    So Khärn cut the belly to let it out.

    Out of the Rhozha Mountains came fearsome barbarians, causing terror and destruction wherever they went. The Khärn spawned deep in the bowels of Skara and worship the horned Snake-God, Bül. Only the bravest dare compete with their great strength.

  • …Thus came the Durno to be masters of Skara. --excerpt from the Chronicles of the Kings of Jotheim.

    Once masters of a mighty empire spanning across Skara, the Durno know no limits of pride. They are skillful tacticians and diplomats, gifted with splendid technology and exceptional powers of organization. Other cultures in Skara trust them at their peril.

  • ...Soon all in this new land will know, and fear the Sons of Fire.

    The Celea are rapacious killers, making use of their tireless energy with devasting effect. New arrivals to Skara from the burning lands of the South, the Celea are responsible for forcing the Shinse from their homelands. Soldiers must advance against their long spears with great caution.

  • “Anger that sits burns its bearer, Anger that moves burns others” --Shinse proverb

    Channel the wisdom and grace of the Seven Schools, the code that keeps this matriarchal society strong. The Shinse yearn to return to their ancestral coast lands, lost to Celean invaders. They now live in the northern steppes to the East, in Nagaco: the floating city.

  • “Gaal said the first Tamvaasa came out of the water. He said like a fish Tamvaasa swam and breathed and ate below until the day came and Celem called him up".

    Surviving in their frozen, northern homelands the Tamvaasa nurture assassins’ hearts. They hunt their enemies mercilessly, like the Vilkai hides they cover themselves with. They are sworn enemies of the Durno, who have encroached on their lands.

    Jonderen’s Account of the Long South (Part 9)

    ΨΨΨ I have no especial talent for the telling of stories. I have known Waterwanderers far greater than myself who could lay the path of a tale and somehow keep it twisting and turning for the listeners’ enjoyment. How they … Continued

  • Jonderen’s Account of the Long South (Part 8)

    ΨΨΨ Again it is hard for me to say precisely how many passages of Gaal we remained in that far off haven. It was no longer so free of cares, and some part of us was eager to be away. … Continued

  • Jonderen’s Account of the Long South (Part 7)

    ΨΨΨ I do not know how long Aflatan was by himself. Even his own company of dancers feared following him, and if it must be said, they felt something was true in what Brendar had spoken. Our abilities to speak … Continued

    Jonderen’s Account of the Long South (Part 6)

    What markings can I use to describe it? Tall trees, pools of chrystaline water, soft heather to sit upon—it continued for length upon length uninterrupted, no eye having espied nor hand turning its unblemished beauty before. With hail hearts did … Continued
