The Island of Velicia is a strange and dangerous land. Before the ice age, only a few small tribes existed on the island. For the most part these people were at peace, having more problems and dangers to deal with than each other. The most prominent danger the tribes had to deal with were the Kelari, a four legged land animal that resembled a wolf mixed with a dragon. Like wolves, these Kelari lived and hunted in packs. They lived mostly in the southern part of the island on the planes where they had room to fly, forcing most of the tribes up north into the more hilly and forested areas of the island. When the ice age came, Settlers came with it. With no one to say otherwise these settlers set down in the east of the island in the foot of the razor ridge mountains, where they immediately began to build. The Settlers declared the land Kenasa. By this time, the ice has melted and the island is cut off once more. In the north the people of Ilithen formed from two lesser tribes. The Ilithen were a more gentle people, and the two former tribes who came together bonded well. They established a permanent settlement on the river Jsint. They established diplomatic relations with the Kenasese people living in the mountains. south west of the 's lands, a tribe of industrious and war orientated people arise. Their lands border the Kelari's territories. troubles brew when the Vicious pack hunters attack. The Velicians, as they later become known, fight back and their advanced bladed weapons prove more than enough to pierce the animals thick hides.
