Twilight of the Kai
“The Gods Ishir and Kai mustered their forces to counter the Darklords but they were woefully ill-prepared for the speed with which Naar’s new champions of evil were conquering the land. They sent forth a race of men called the Sommlending, a noble breed of warriors both wise and strong, and fortified them further with new magic and a weapon of great power called the Sommerswerd, the Sword of the Sun.
“In the year MS 3434, this host of fair-headed warriors led by the fierce and lordly King Kian came to the Lastlands in ships of yellowed oak. They had sailed across the Northern Void, through storm and ice, to turn back the tide of evil. For three centuries the Darklords had conquered the lands of Northern Magnamund but the arrival of the Sommlending reversed their victories in the east and drove them back beyond the Durncrag Mountains. They established their homeland of Sommerlund on territory wrested from the Darklords, transforming it into a land of fertile beauty. King Kian’s victory was but the first battle in a long and vindictive war to be waged over the coming centuries.”
