Skegdald - Imperian Online Help
A large tribe of Ogres lived for decades within the depths of the Gongen Mountains, hunting the small creatures within the pass, eating the plants within the forests, and occasionally feasting upon the flesh of those travellers who wandered too close to their encampments. After decades of living this way, they grew tired of the bland plants surrounding their encampment, and their hunger grew for more, meatier prey. In search of more hearty prey, the horde of ogres disbanded their encampment and moved down from the Gongen Mountains. Situating themselves in a clearing in the Ithaqua forest, they kept a close eye on the villagers of Ithaqua. It has been rumoured that after years of living in the harsh environment of the North, these once regular members of the horde have been changed into giant, frost ogres. Few have ventured into Skegdald, and even fewer have lived to tell tales about it. It has been rumoured that, like the ogres, the creatures within those parts of the woods have grown giant, wild, and vicious. The trees grow large and strong in Skegdald, and the shadows of the mountains near cover the encampment in darkness. Only the bravest explorers and hunters shall venture into these dangerous grounds, for fear that they themselves may become the prey.
