After the collapse of the Hollow Earth and years of turmoil, the Vengassi clan convince the majority of the Deepkin to abandon the unstable depths and live on the surface. There is hidden dissent about abandoning tradition, with many citing the legends and warnings from before the original Elderkin schism. Compromise was had, with the Deepkin establishing Deepmot on the surface, with many remaining in the shallow depths just below the city. Trade was established with the Genasi hordes to Sunside, and the tribes on Sea of Black Ice. Trade in Stone magics for exotic food and materials from Sunside and Shadowside alike.
