The Deskari

The Deskari were an ancient ethnic Kratheri civilization on Za'Har; known for their horrific demon-worshiping. The Deskari were also fierce warriors who made constant war upon their neighbors.

The Deskari founded an ancient kingdom called Soravia; located in the center of the Continent of Za'Har. The ancient Deskari people created a brutal and terrifying civilization that worshiped Demons and Dark Gods, and made widespread use of human sacrifice to honor those Gods. For fresh supplies of sacrificial victims, the Deskari made war upon their neighbors all across the Continent of Za'Har.

The human tribes of the Olman, who were forced to flee the continent in large numbers. The Deskari also destroyed the Hakeen empire of Old Xhola in the year AR -552, and forced the mass migration of thousands of Kratheri refugees to Corwyn.

Ultimately, the Deskari peoples, their Realm of Soravia, and its capital city of Khorov were destroyed and the region succumbed to evil forces from the Abyss, and hosts of demons and other terrible creatures now freely roam here. Sages believe that the evil High-Priests of Soravia foolishly opened a portal into the lower planes of Hell, destroying themselves, their entire civilization, and creating the Blight; a permanent gateway between the world of Oris and the Underworld. A few sages and scholars in Khalifar have studied the ancient Deskari culture and believe that their demon-worshiping practices directly led to the destruction of their civilization and the creation of the Blight.

Very little else is known about either Soravia, the city of Khorov or the Deskari people, as almost all written records have been lost.
