crypt of the everflame
Kassen is a small town on the Tourondel River in the Fang Wood of Nirmathas. It’s a relatively close-knit settlement with origins that stretch back to the year 4522 AR, when the town’s founder, Ekat Kassen, grew tired of life as an adventurer and retired there.
History of Kassen
In 4522, after a very profitable adventure, a crusader named Ekat Kassen used a sizable portion of his fortune to tame a small area of the Fangwood on the banks of the Tourondel River, making it a natural stopover for those traveling up and down the river to Skelt. The town, called Kassen’s Hold (later known as just Kassen), grew and prospered.
Death of Ekat Kassen
In 4535 AR a man by the name of Asar Vergas arrived in Kassen’s Hold. Claiming to be a former adventuring companion of the town’s founder, he felt Kassen had cheated him before they had parted ways. Vergas and a group of mercenaries raided the settlement for a period of two months before their camp was located. Kassen mounted an attack on the raider’s stronghold, slaying Vergas and scattering the mercenaries before succumbing to wounds received during the fighting. Those killed on both sides were buried in the crypt that served as the site of the battle.
