Welcome to the OUAN Wiki


Welcome to the OUAN Wiki

The OUAN Site Wiki is a labor of love created by the current members of OUAN for the future members of OUAN. Our goal is to make the canon history of our site as easy to peruse and learn as possible for those of you who wish to join our family. Within you can find everything from species to characters to members to canon tales and so much more.

WE ARE IN BETA TESTING RIGHT NOW. ALTHOUGH 99% OF THE WIKI IS DONE, WE ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FACT CHECKING, PROOFREADING, AND COMPLETING A FEW EXTRA PAGES AS WE REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO MAKE THEM. Please excuse our mess. If you find empty pages, we are working on filling them post haste. If you find conflicting information, we are working on making our facts align across pages and we would be happy to tell you which piece of conflicting information is correct. We apologize for any confusion, with luck Beta Testing will be over the and the Wiki will be 100% done shortly.

THANK YOU!

Soristine was the capital of Dokrayth before the Blight and was known for its large marketplace and its talented craftspeople. Most notably it was the site of a purge of the textile injury upon the cursing of Aurora Vauclain on her name day nearly a century ago and was the first metropolitan area to fall to the Blight. It has been abandoned ever since.

Location



Soristine was founded on the ancient remains of a Fae city in east central Dokrayth. It is located not far from the River of Tears which cuts through the eastern portions of Ga'leah and forms a natural border between Xehacora and Dokrayth.

History



Soristine was founded in 746 AH by Frederick Vauclain on the abandoned remains of a Fae city once found in the same location. Taking advantage of previously abandoned structures, Frederick Vauclain (otherwise known as Frederick the Cruel) expanded upon these construct to make a vast city with the largest free marketplace in Ga'leah.

Soristine's wealth was built on the back of the tradesmen's guilds that followed the artisans welcomed to the city by a promise of lower taxes and a free marketplace. It became the center of trade and craftsman. Even those who did not make Dokrayth their home often visited Soristine for their market or to attempt to garner entry into one of their tradesmen's guilds.

After the curse was placed on Aurora Vauclain, the textile industry in Dokrayth suffered greatly under the paranoia of King Stefan and Queen Leah. The weaving and tailoring guilds within Soristine were raided and all spinning wheels and instruments of tailoring where confiscated and burned in a bonfire in the center of the marketplace. Afterward, all such instruments were banned as was the weaving or tailoring of cloth or garments. Wagons and visitors to the city were searched for such contraband and the laws were enforced mercilessly.

Although subsequent rulers attempted to reconcile things with the weaving and tailoring guilds after Aurora's curse came to fruition and King Stefan died, these guilds have never returned to Soristine and the marketplace is now distinctly lacking in any kind of cloth or clothing.

Blight



Soristine was the first metropolitan area to fall to the Blight. The Walking Starvation was relatively unheard of at the time, only Caerleon had as yet experienced the rising and reanimation of the dead.

The Blight began in Soristine as what was believed to be a citywide infection which sprang from a baker who had been in Caerleon at the time of the High Queen's intended execution and had been bitten by one of the Starving. Acting as a vector for the disease, he infected many in Dokrayth who sampled his breads, cakes, and cookies, and within a week's time the death toll had become a cause for some concern. No one, however, thought the disease was the Walking Starvation come to Dokrayth until it was too late.

The city was unprepared for the sudden uprising and quickly fell to mass hysteria and a disorganized military response. Even the King and Queen were believed lost in the attack that decimated the city and left it uninhabitable and overrun with Blight.
