KEHJISTAN AND KURAST
On the eastern edge of the Twin Seas lie the emerald jungles of Kehjistan. Several thousand
years ago, hunter-gatherers found themselves drawn to the lush, fertile rain forests and
bountiful game inhabiting Kehjistan. But there was something else; Kehjistan's geography was
rife with nodes of magical energies, and eventually those with innate, arcane abilities began
to sense and recognize these forces, gathering in groups to settle these special areas. It was
here that the original mage clans, the Vizjerei, the Ennead and the Ammuit, were founded.
Unfortunately the history of Kehjistan is not a peaceful one, and the Mage Clan Wars that
erupted nearly destroyed the clans.
Geographically, Kehjistan encompasses almost one-third of Sanctuary's eastern hemisphere. With
an average rainfall of over four hundred inches per year, Kehjistan has the largest rainforests
in the known world. This huge expanse of jungle feeds the Argentek River, which is the longest,
widest river in Sanctuary. Hundreds of smaller rivers and tributaries twist and turn their way
through the lush tropical forests until they finally unite with the mighty Argentek. Herbalists
and alchemists revere the rainforest environment for its ecological diversity. Until recently,
these sages would come from far and wide to study and collect the rare plants and animals that
make their homes here. Now the jungle is far too dangerous to visit, let alone inhabit. Entire
villages, even small cities have been wiped out. News has broken that Kurast, the current capitol
of Kehjistan, is now under siege by the powers of Hell, and is kept safe only through powerful
magical barriers that even now begin to ebb and fade.
What reports do escape this besieged area tell of terrible creatures:
Note: You may encounter some of these monsters in later Acts.
