The Siege of Exterrea
The largest continent on Xenaka, was ruled by seven kings until the Wrestman killed the fourth king and used his armies to lay siege upon Volatao. As the legend goes, two adventurers appeared about four centuries ago, on the shores of Volatao. They came with a warning of an approaching calamity. They first pleaded with the dwarf king of Harsk, but he turned them away not wanting to get involved with outsiders. They then approached the other kings, but all of them, sent the two adventurers away; except the halfling king of Rotfeld, who welcomed them and offered aid. With the halfling navy at their backs the two adventurers set sail to open sea, to meet the calamity known as the Wrestman before he could reach shore. The navy was able to make short work of the Wrestman’s ship and returned home triumphantly. The two adventurers were wary however and warned the halfling king that he should hold off his celebration until they had made certain there was no longer any danger. The halfling king ignored them and began a great festival that was to last three weeks, but on the second week a man appeared in the capitol, soaked and tattered he proclaimed himself the Wrestman and called out the halfling king. There in the town center, he decapitated the halfling king as his subjects and soldiers watched helplessly.
After the death of the halfling king, the Wrestman disappeared for a time. He later showed up in a town many miles away and set forth the proclamation that a nearby town, would be destroyed two days later. Two days later every townsperson was slaughtered and no witnesses were found. The Wrestman continued to destroy towns throughout Volatao until the remaining six kings decided to assist the two adventurers in putting a stop to him. Each of the seven nations sent their strongest warriors and the Heroic Nine defeated the Wrestman and sealed him deep beneath the mountains of Terrea.
As time went on the countries of Volatoa forgot the threat and began once more to squabble over territory.
