Keskala

Campaign Starting Location

I've been here since 6410. You can't throw a stone in Keskala without me knowin bout it. No sire, ain't a thing in this village I duno a thing or two about, that I promise you; I watch, an I listen to all these lit'luns running amok. That's jus what I do.
— Old Lady Canli
 
Located at the transitional border between the Kogria Mountains and the Donesh Dry Forest in the Talaina'Vao region of Tolara, the small village of Keskala sits not far from the border of the Cimanos River. Nestled among the vines and trees, the village and its associated Homesteads may be hard to spot for those unfamiliar with the area. While largely isolated, however, the villages of Mader and Lodhi lay two day's walk to the north and north-west respectively- with the larger city of Agdrimis situated a week or two's ride to the south, and the city of Rothshield a week's ride to the north-east.
First established between 5907 and 5908 by a group of Tameri fleeing the conflict of the Red Schism, the original town of Keskala was abandoned in 5918 shortly after its settlement. Later in 6150, a group of Timber Elves would inhabit the site- but would likewise desert it in favor of better climates.   After the Timber Elves settlement was forsaken, in 6347 an expedition team led by Yen Tae-Hyun would use the site to establish a main base of operations for their many expeditions in the region. But in 6348 the site was deserted once more in favor of Chara'Huyan, and would remain so until 6415- being used only rarely as a temporary outpost for additional expeditions.   In 6405 the collapse of a Druuma stronghold in the nearby portion of the Kogria Mountains would drive the surviving members of Clan Skala to the surface. Stumbling across the remnants of the old village, the clan rebuilt, intending to use it as a temporary base while they recovered enough to reclaim their stronghold... Instead of reclaiming their home, however, they grew accustomed to the area; permanently settling there they built the village into the small pseudo stronghold that it is today, and formally name it for themselves.
