Sekkai. A land once known for its peace and prosperity, a thriving land of a rich bounty, ruled by the Empress and her court. Famine and despair was even rare there, the majority of Sekkai's citizens living peaceful and without incident, well-fed by the bounty of the land and her trades. All good things had to come to an end, though, and it appeared that such a thing held true for the rich land of Sekkai and her denizens.
Times changed swiftly. A few sparse attacks dotted the North and West, but that all began to change far too swiftly. The Taint had grown strong while the Sekkaians had grown lazy, amassing within the Desolation until they had become an extremely formidable force. Finally, after centuries of hiding within the shadows and feeding off the skeletal remains of the land, they were strong enough to rise up in an attempt to overthrow their oppressors, and overthrow them they did.
The battles were long and bloody, involving the destruction of the Academy at one point, even though it was eventually rebuilt. Things were hardly easy on the Sekkaians, though, especially as the Tainted forces began to gain ground bit by bit, steadily spreading their influence and expanding the Desolation until it began to eat away at the lands of Sekkai like a swiftly spreading cancer. They was little to stop their growing force, but things were swiftly about to change for the worse, especially with the introduction of a new Tainted breed. This breed, an off shoot of the Rosemary breed, were hardly combatants but possessed the capability to kill many with relative ease. These dangerous creatures were able to infect many with a deadly disease, killing off most of the gravity, lava, ice, and glass dragons and sterilizing those remaining. This dealt a crushing blow to Sekkai and land was lost almost instantly, the war swiftly turning around and tilting discernibly in the favor of the Taint.
Now, ten years since the events of the original Sekkai
, only the East remains, Niyushi packed with those remaining Sekkaian refugees. The forces of good have been decimated and the victory for the Tainted seems secure, but there are stirrings among the Qih-nzak that could spell either a turning point or doom for all...
Welcome, then, to Sekkai Fractures.
