Far to the west of the Crownless Lands, the sun-baked kingdom of Alevmar was one of the jewels of the ancient world. According to legend, the Alevi came to this world from a land of eternal flame, and with their advanced magics and metalwork they tempered the land to their needs. Groves of dates and olives dotted the rocky landscape, and for nearly two thousand years, Alevmar was characterised by prosperity and scholarly enlightenment.
The Sealing of the SevenEdit
Though they had built a land of plenty, the Alevi kings yearned to know the secrets of their fiery ancestors. For King Ovodras IV, this desire became an obsession. In the year 1591 DM, he comissioned the construction of the Conflagarant Gate, which would serve to connect Alevmar to the world of its forebears.
Historical accounts conflict on what happened when the Gate was opened, as few primary sources from the event survived. It is undeniably clear, however, that the Conflagarant Gate allowed an enormous demonic host to attack Alevmar.These forcess, led by the powerful archdemons known as the Seven Kivenic Warlords, laid waste to the once-beautiful kingdom. After years of one-sided slaughter, the broken people of Alevmar enacted a desparate plan. Thousands of Alevi were crammed onto small trade ships and sailed east into unknown seas. Among those left behind, Alevmar's circle of mages sacrificed themselves in order to seal the doomed kingdom from the rest of the world, containing the Seven and their twisted hordes.
The Yven ExodusEdit
Those who sailed east left the name of Alevmar behind them. They called themselves Yven, "banished" in the Alevi tongue. The voyage was long and hopeless; less than half survived and many succumbed to despair. Of the nobility who set out eastward, only a young princeling named Souniad I remained alive and healthy by the time the Yven landed in the Fang. Souniad claimed this new land for his people, calling it "home of the banished", or Yvenmar.
