“Be it for its inhospitable climate, barren lands, murderous heights, seclusive tribes, or its labyrinthinc maze of stones and mountains, most people ending up in the region known as “the Rocks” do not ever come back to the civilized part of the continent.
How fitting for the exiled guards of Tlamor to build their new order there, almost one thousand years ago. There, their ascetic discipline could only bloom.”
