Fall of the Warlock Kings
Legendary first advisors, guides and protectors of the Dragon Empire. The Seven Dragons led the settlers to Afyon from the Dragon Realm of Rhu’alan. Each then claimed a province, from Dal in the south to Mephis in the north, and guided Imperial efforts in those areas, until at last all the parts of the continent that the dragons had settled in were part of the Empire. That the dragons never moved further on perhaps explains why the Empire did not continue to expand, and that they grew old, died or vanished perhaps explains why Kydon Kail has fallen to such a low state as it now enjoys. The Seven died, or faded, one by one over the centuries, with the White Dragon of Mephis dying first, and each dragon one after another ceasing to play a role. At the last the Great Green, protectress of Kydon Kail itself, flew weakly to the southeast, settling on Ullien Kail for a brief time before vanishing into the sunrise, and, it is said, dying in the final collapse of Rhu’alan. Rumors that one or more of the dragons are still alive, or that eggs left by the have hatched, are unconfirmed.
