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.




    Ok–it has been a while since my last development blog – *looking for a credible excuse* – So now it is time to rescue this tradition :) Despite some members of the team going on summer vacation, the SKARA team … Continued

    Na-Swan-se among the Khärn [Part 9]

    The Khärn seemed to accept and respect what Na-Swan-se had done—seeing her returned to her perch, they left her there. They did not chain her, they did not come and throw rocks at her or poke sticks—they even left the … Continued

  • Na-Swan-se among the Khärn [Part 8]

    …The crowd of Khärn began howling—Bül! Bül! Bül! –as the snake was held at the edge of the coliseum. With the majority of the Khärn safely beyond the border of the flowing lava, including the Hrackakhärn himself, the two remaining … Continued

    Na-Swan-se among the Khärn [Part 7]

    Na-Swan-se was treated more like an exotic pet than a slave. She was regularly fed scraps of Fadül meat as well as piles of mashed edible lichen that grew within the cave walls, served in stolen Shinse or Durno dishes. … Continued

    Na-Swan-se among the Khärn [Part 6]

    Na-Swan-se’s account of her time living in the Khärn mountain dwelling of Khilma provides our scholars with much insight. As I mentioned before, Na-Swan-se eventually learned enough of the brutish language to tell us some of their stories and customs. … Continued
