Qurnok - Achaea Online Help
The village of Qurnok is a small, dark patch of swamp near Green Lake, within which lives a clan of trolls. Descendants of the Kasmarkin trolls, the Qurnok clan escaped from the city as it sank beneath the depths of the Mannaseh swamp, taking with them a single prized possession, the Cypress of Mysteries. They ventured for days, finally stumbling upon a small area of swamp near Green Lake. The trolls planted the Cypress in the centre of the village, allowing it to grow to massive proportions as the miasma of dark energy from which they once obtained their power continued to expand. Over time, abuse of the tree's power has led to several ill effects throughout the village, the most concerning to the trolls being the loss of the protection they once enjoyed from curious and wayward outsiders.
