 +====== History ======

 +Excerpt from the [[gaeleth:​history:​Karatikan Alliance]]:
 +
 +//Empreror Hugen (the 1st, as history would have it) decided to flex his muscles in combat with the Karatikan Alliance. ​ In 202 Avard, he began a series of feints and attacks aimed at probing the powers of the druids and rangers -- after carefully studying the prior two centuries of history available on the alliance. ​ Both sides met surprising resistance, as Emperor Hugen I's people were strangely fanatical of their charismatic leader (and carefully prepared by the emperor'​s minstrels and bards), and the emperor'​s armies could make no real headway against entrenched druids, treants, and ranger armies.
 +
 +One of the emperor'​s professional soldiers, whose weapon had broken in combat, retreated from the battle only to save the life of a weapons smith named Purrile. ​ The soldier died saving Purrile'​s life, and not long afterwards, the smith discovered the Relic of Infierne -- calling into being the God of Weapons. ​ Purrile became Infierne'​s first Chosen, and immediately began crafting weapons and converting followers from the empire'​s soldiers.
 +
 +The alliance'​s rangers were forced to fall back against the vastly superior weapons of the empire, until a deal was struck with Infierne'​s Chosen. ​ In exchange for rare metals and the secrets of composite bows, Infierne'​s other smiths began to make weapons for the alliance, as well.//
 +
 +In 763 Avard, the God Slayer sword known as Giran Howel was found. ​ That same year, the God Slayer destroyed Infierne.
