Legacy of the Fallen Kingdom
The War of Shadows - Legend of the Hawks Path
400 years ago the demon Rendalor found a way into our would through the use of what would later be known as the black gate, and soon started to spread his evil across all of Sarlona. His army’s enslaved countless people and crushed all who opposed it. But when all seemed lost hope came in the form of one girl, blessed by the god Bahamut, she would hold the key to the fall of the shadow legions. Many fought in that war and much was lost, but a group known as the Heroes of the Hawk brought about the wars end. In the final battle the girl of legend made the ultimate sacrifice and lost her life, and in doing so released the power to close the black gate once and for all. No one really knows how this was accomplished for no one alive can remember that long ago and all that remains is myth and legends.
This period in time would be later known as the Age of Shadows.
*The only known surviving members of the Hero’s of the Hawk are the dwarf lord Jasper Stonefist and Elven queen Lenia Moonstar
