Halcyon, The Golden Age
Temair na Ri
The town of Temair na Ri, a decently sized town in the south of Luthwaire, is on the main island Forradh. The Temair na Ri of the past was, for the most part, a simple place, outside the Stone of Destiny, where the coronation of the human kings took place. The people who had their home there likely spent time training, hunting, and listening to the stories of myth and history told by the local bards of the Temple of Ogma. Also located here was a small branch of the human mage guard.
When the humans arrived, they had come into conflict with a race known as the Fomorians. The Fomorians were taller than the normal human, and often deformed or twisted, some say due to a pact with the Abyss itself. The Fomorians had once ruled the land, but had been weakened due to battle with the local fey. Although there had always been occasional skirmishes with the Fomorians, it wasn’t until about two hundred years ago that the problems escalated. The Fomorians had turned to their rumored roots and brought in armies of demons in an attempt to reclaim the island of Forradh. After several battles, it was the actions of one man, now lost in history, that brought about a decisive victory, banishing the demon armies and leading to the re-exile of the Fomorians. Still, many wonder if this banishment will last, and even now, strange, dark things can be found there.
