Shadows Over Var-Zyn
The Cult of Valakos
It is believed that The Prophet G’hazadai was born in Vraynn approximately 294 years ago. The circumstances of his meteoric rise to power remain lost to time, but what is known is that The Cult of Valakos began spreading like wildfire 277 years ago. Within six years, cultists had bloodlessly infiltrated the governments of several Caliphates, and in an occurrence known as The Crusade, the last remnants of those governments disloyal to The Cult were dispatched, leaving G’hazadai and his cohort as masters of an empire. War followed for nearly thirty years as one by one, the independent kingdoms of Var-Zyn either bent the knee and became vassals, or were ground to dust by the Empire’s wrath. By 268 years ago, the there was no one else to oppose imperial hegemony west of The Tsai Ung, and the Crusade came to a merciful end.
