Chronicles of Aehrtara
The people of the Necropolis were always a little on the xenophobic side. They never did much with the outside world, and kept to themselves. Eventually they were raided by the Grand Rylen Empire in the Empire’s conquest for control of the land. When the Necropolis turned aside the empire’s attempt at taking them over using thier magics, the Emperor immediately became interested and jealous of the power they wielded, wanting it for himself.
