When the corrupted elven races diverged, the Keres, corrupted Cögálfar, travelled to the southern continent of Moyesh, settling in the northwestern point, a diverse region divided by a stretching river and mountain range. The orcish race came to call themselves The Scorned, and the land they came to inhabit they called Sunder. The Keres often sought out war, even more so than their ancestor Cögálfar, they would often leave their homeland to skirmish againsy other races and regions.
