Wrath of the Righteous
The small town of Gundrun is unique to the Worldwound in that a semblance of normal life can be found there. Far from the heart of the Worldwound itself, refugees of lost Sarkoris cling here to a sad shadow of their former homeland. Within the crumbling ruins of a city sacked long ago, hardy (and perhaps foolhardy) settlers return from surrounding lands to eke out a meager existence and live in a sort of barter-town that serves as a hub for isolated villages scattered to the south and west, toward Shudderwood and the Moutray River f lowing along Ustalav’s border. In truth, the demon hordes of the Worldwound turn their eyes primarily toward Mendev and pay little mind to the far southwestern frontier, but
Gundrun and the surrounding lands are not without danger, as the demonic invasion left something behind. Local legend names this menace as “Kakuen-Taka, theHunger That Moves.” Fireside tales describe it as a swarm of tiny demonic horrors riding in “f leshy mansions” gnawed out of the animate remains of giants, mammoths, and similar creatures. Despite this ever-present danger, the lure of reclaiming even the tiniest portion of their ancestral home is enough to drive many with even a drop of Sarkorian blood to cling to this savage frontier.
