Brief Lore The sacred spiral energy, or so called the "Sacred Serpent", travels the planet twisting it's way through the center of the world and comes through it's end and loops around in an infinite cycle. Legends say that the "Sacred Serpent" changes it's energetic gates every 3600 years. Although, a century ago, the cycle happened once again and the two Serpent's gates have shifted in different locations. One of them secretly rests now in the mystical woods of Tai Ang. Because of this recent event, the Woods of Tai Ang are now full of richness, and abundance can be found everywhere you step and breath. The people who used to lived there and harnessed the energy of the Serpent's Spiral was a Matriarchal Society called the Tai Ang Clan. Females were naturally more in touch with the Serpent's energy and were leaders, innovationists and great spiritual teachers in their community. The lands were peaceful till the arrival of the High Elves fifty years ago, who were seeking power through knowledge and logic. They saw the Woods of Tai Ang as a new opportunity for them to grow as a race. Unfortunately, their greed for control and their hunger for power made them act without compassion or feelings towards others and ended up chasing the Tai Ang Clan and it's people away. Ever since the occupation, the High Elves haven't figured out the Serpent's energy. Their hatred and resentment for the Tai Ang Clan has grown quickly over the years. The Tai Ang Clan is currently starting to divide because of differences in beliefs and the High Elves have taken this opportunity to take action. Their main interest is to find any talented channellers of the Tai Ang Clan, for them to use in their own interests. . . . The Dwarven Scriptures, written long times ago, tell stories of great prosperity and abundance. These relics still exist, made of platinum, they fought through time and lasted generations. Inscribed on them, you can find legends dating from 15 500 years ago, when one of the Energetic Gates, was directly located through UnderMountain. This is why, nowdays the environment in the region is more potent energetically than other areas. Unfortunately, after a cycle passed, the Serpent's presence was no more and the Dwarves fell in a dark age where they've been enslaved by the grand and sombre Giants for a little more than 10 000 years... Recently, a century ago, at the same time as the Serpent's presence was felt in Tai Ang, the Dwarven rebellion took place and managed to free themselves from their long held chains. Since then, during the Reign of Kronn, the Dwarves gave all their hearts, in search of one of the Serpentine's Gates. After 50 years, when they've finally found one, in the deepest location of the lustrous forest of Tai Ang, they've only encountered death. The High Elves were already slaughtering the humans of Tai Ang, who couldn't defend themselves. The Dwarves did their best to defend the Tai Ang people, those ones managed to reach the Oasis lands of the desert, where together, the two races, grown fond of each other. They've shared knowledge about the Serpentine's energy and love. However, after around 20 years, the Tai Ang People divided quickly after they've lost their homeland, and two groups formed, the Faithfuls and Un-Faithfuls. Kroggar was part of the platoon who reached Tai Ang for the first time and who helped the Tai Ang Clan to rebuild. He studied with them for a little while before leaving in search for the second Serpent's gate. But he was called back when the deadly civil feud broke. Unfortunately he didn't arrive in time and now he is searching for the any Faithfuls who could have survived the disastrous event. ... Curernt Dwarven Year, 15 550 ...
