Scales of War
Shephatiah was once the rule of a serpent empire that ruled over the desert south of what is now the Elsir Vale. The empire itself dissolved centuries ago and Shephatiah spent years wandering the Elemental chaos, seeking to restore her lost kingdom.
On one of her journies, she discovered a rift linking the Karak mines with the Elemental Chaos. Since that day, Shephatiah has made the Karak Lode her lair and used her demonic allies to restart the mining of the area.
