The Kingdom of Kuranaya was once the dominant power in Aliadar. Althought the seat of the empire was in the northern regions of the continent, many strongholds, once housing the standing armies of the king, dot the eastern coast, reminding any travelers of the control King Rufus once exerted upon the land. These fortresses, though, are now nothing but ruins. One of these fortresses, Crow’s Keep, lies only a day’s journey from the town of Therradale.
Kuranaya was ransacked almost 50 years ago by an orcish horde led by a warlord named Gezluk. Perhaps this threat alone could have been stopped by the might of the empire, but political infighting did much to unravel the power commanded by the king. The Kuranayan armies were also spread too thinly. It is rumored that when the kingdom fell, a rogue legion of knights established a base of operations somewhere and swore to one day bring peace and order back to the land.
