HISTORY


The ancient city of Krylnath has a long, dark history. In the year 1064/4, Krylnath was the capital of Varia; a powerful Iskari Duchy, ruled by Kalfus Mandrake that, along with the Duchies of Cynara and Hennara, rebelled against the Kingdom of Cyrendar, sparking the Iskari Civil War.

The Iskari Civil War began with the death of King Ilcanar Cyrenäe II, who was poisoned by Alokkair’s agents. The king died without a rightful heir and soon after, fueled by Alokkair’s treachery, disputes arose as to the proper royal successor. For the next twenty years, the bitter Iskari Civil War raged between the opposing factions before all were united under one banner by King Ikharos Blackburn in the year 1087/4.

After the war's end, King Ikharos destroyed the noble House of Mandrake; Duke Kalfus Mandrake and two of his sons were slain in battle; the third son was executed. Ikharos then broke the Duchy of Varia into the four smaller Duchies: Barstow, Stormchapel, Randivik, & Varia. These new Vassal states were then ruled by loyalist nobles.

The ancient home of Castle Mandrake still exists, atop a great hill overlooking the city, although for centuries it has been home to the powerful House of Arzadon.

Today, the city of Krylnath is governed by Duke Exley Arzadon.
