The Durno believe their First Father was carved out of the Mountains and brought down by the Eagles. They were the first to settle central Skara, the first to build a city, learn trades and crafts and become wealthy. They were the first to learn the use of metal in the arts of war and the first to seek to conquer Skara and enslave its people.
The Durno’s greed led to their trouble. By moving into their northern neighbor’s territory, the Durno began an age long struggle with the Tamvaasa. Eventually, by entering into a pact with the Shinse, the Durno managed to push the Tamvaasa far away from the good land.
Once a lazy people, in more recent times the king recognized the need to preserve his new lands by constant show of strength. He provided his army with the newest and best swords, shields and crossbows. Ever since, all of the Durno have been well trained for battle. They march together as sorted troops and act as an army.
For a long time, and through-out the alliance with the Shinse, the sons of noblemen from Durno would spend three years in Nagaco, where under the guidance of Masters learned the most accurate and lethal of Shinse techniques. These sons became a new elite amongst Durno people.
Durno lands now extend over most of the land to the east of the Rhozsa mountains, and for more than fifty years they have ruled with an iron fist over the region.
