In the month of Chakros, year 501 of the Midnight Age, a faction known as the Karnagh settled into the valley of Abelaas. With Shamanic power, and aided by their knowledge of Dendaric runes, a blossoming of life occurred where once only desolation stood following the collapse of Hashan. The Karnagh have made it known in no uncertain terms that the valley remains under their protection, and have proven already to defend this stance bitterly, and with utmost prejudice. Their reasoning, however, remains shrouded to mystery, save for those that have earned the right to be called friend.
