Call to Arms
The first ten generations of humans were nomads, hunters and gatherers, fed by the bounty of Vesta, Lanru and Ninandi. As their numbers grew, they gathered at the heart of the world and Ninandi taught them to sow and reap.
Small, permanent settlements grew, and in yr 363 they founded the city of Aruk, a direct result of men inventing beer.
Aruk flourished for centuries, even under the heel of the Arrakyn the Cruel until it was sacked in the Godslayer War. What remained was destroyed when the gods raised the Nightmare Mountains directly under Aruk.
