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 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

  • Jonderen’s Account of the Long South (Part 4)

    ΨΨΨ All great courses of good fortune must come to an end, and so ours did. For though most Gaalian villages were exceedingly small in size, some were very much larger. Though not endowed with great buildings, or even fortifications, … Continued

    Jonderen’s Account of the Long South (Part 3)

    …In fact Hal had ridden into a shallows many lengths from the true land—a dry and barren looking land. Our own fens in the Long North are a paradise by comparison, for it seemed not a thing grows there, but … Continued
