History

After being exiled, Sillyphus headed out of Darewell going northwest. On the entraces to the Baelum Woods he encountered a former naval officer of the Navy that has managed to escape from a lost battle in the harbour of Deathport. He called himself The Admrial and was on the way south from Deathport together with a man that only identified himself as The Coachman. He was coachmand, bodyguard and the only survivor of a delegation hailing from Drom on the northern island of Agar. Together they marched south encountering a hermit that only called himself The Seer. The Seer told them that the only way to overcome this darkness would be to march south, cross the Vargokhor Gates and climb the top of Vargorok, the Holy Mountain. There and only there they will find the strength and their destiny. Finally, at the Vargokhor Gates they met there fourh and final companion. Him being unable to speak and only to scream in hate and anger they called him The Insane.

While making their way down to Varamosh at the foot of Vargorok, they encountered more and more beings that identified themselves as the Varags. Men half goat, half human. With faces and horns like goats, but walking upright like men. The further they party of Sillyphus moved into the territory, the more they befriended with the Varags, realizing that they were somehow left untouched by the madness of war waged by the Kramh. Night after night they told each other stories from the lands they came from and their ancient heritage. Until one day Sillpyhus and his friends were accepted as honoured guests among the Varags and together they swore that they will push the Kramh back to where they came from.
