Year 21 AC
The cliffs near the Vale Lake in eastern Taina gain residents. Though they are refuges from the plains, driven out by competition, they are fierce and want to finally find a place to live. They begin to haul soil up to the terraced hills and build defensible homes to keep out invaders. They are looking for mages and men at arms to protect them while they build and our paying as best they can. The shaman of the group of refuges has maps to nearby ancient cities and is willing to part with them if anyone can stay for a bit and protect them from other humans and humanoids alike.
