History

Originally settled by a Aundarian Knight who had distinguished himself during the first decade of the war. Tired of war, the knight and his family lived happily on the farm for more than decade. However, they could not hide forever and as the world dragged itself deeper into war, the Knight’s 3 sons enlisted to protect their beloved homeland. Within a year two were dead and a third had been corrupted and twisted into a undead soldier of the Karnathi army. Stricken with grief, the Knight cursed all nations and killed himself and his wife. Stories quickly rose amongst the citizens of Varna that the land was both haunted and cursed. It is little wonder why it lay vacant for almost 60 years until, as payment for releasing the city from a the grip of an Oni-lead criminal organization, the merchant’s guild of Varna presented the land and it’s structures to the adventuring group as payment.
