MapLuran Hills

The Lurans are hills running from Baurwen to the southern tip of Orukhan. These hills are a rich source of iron, gold, and other minerals. The Lurans are windy, battered by the strong winds of the Northern Hordelands, and the cross winds of the Bog Sea and Galathien. The confluences of these winds are a frequent source of tornadoes and strong storms in this area.

During the First and Second Epoch, the lower Lurans were home to Tragaran frontiersmen. The area became very religious with a some holy orders possessing fanatical ideals. Some claim the dangerous and often violent border lands of Farinteen and the wild north were the cause for all the crusaders, zealots and evangelists of the Lurans. One of the most prominent groups of this area was the family of Gudyazas. This family were the leaders of many of the forts and holdings of the southern reaches of the Lurans.

In the Black Tide War (1465 - 1504), the people of the Lurans put up a bitter fight against the hordes of undead. Rather than perish in open battle, they shifted north of the Black Tide and into the Northern Hordelands. For the remainder of this war, they became guerrillas and raided supply lines and weak points of the Black Tide defenses.

The Lurans hold the bones of three wars, the Black Tide War, the Athena Cruade and the Buruthran War (1824 - 1829 ). The ruined places of all these conflict dot the landscape.
