HISTORY


The ancient city of Krylnath has a long, dark history. In the year 1064/4, the city was the capital of Varia; of a powerful Duchy Led by Kalfus Mandrake that, along with the duchies of Cynara and Hennara, broke away from the Kingdom of Cyrendar, sparking the Iskari Civil War. The 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 disputes arose as to the proper royal successor, fueled by Alokkair’s treachery. For twenty years the bitter Iskari Civil War raged between the opposed factions before all were united under one banner by King Ikharos Ketharë in the year 1087/4.

After the war's end, the Duchy of Varia was broken into the four smaller duchies of Barstow, Stormchapel, Randivik, & Varia. led by loyalist nobles and the ruling house of Mandrake was destroyed. Duke Kalfus and all three of his sons were either slain in battle, executed or exiled. 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 Myrren family.

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