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!

Berkendell is an incredibly close knit mountain community in which the law of the land is very much 'care for your neighbor and your neighbor will care for you.' Everyone takes care of everyone else and as a result is not dependent upon the gods or the other communities of Ga'leah for survival. It is this mentality that allowed them to survive the Blight with little to no ill effect.

Location



Berkendell is a small mountain town located in the Hyadies mountains. Though is technically located at the top of one of the lowest peaks, it is still considered to fall on the Solharan side. It does possess a working set of Shifting Silvers but chose to cap their Shifting Silvers during the Blight to stop the spread of the plague into their town. They have yet to leave them uncapped and only open them when someone needs to leave Berkendell quickly.

History



Berkendell is a small mountain town located in the Hyadies mountains on the Solharan side. It was one of the original settlements in Ga'leah by the early humans and has some of the oldest structures on the continent. It also contains some of the oldest historical documentation under lock and key in the town's temple to the gods.

The Dragons of old often roosted in the Hyadies mountains, and when the God of Vengeance gave his godhood to his sister the Goddess of Mercy to facilitate her revenge on the Pantheon for taking away her own godhood, the dragons fell into a frenzy. Although the gods were forced to kill the dragons to stop the violence, they did not do so until a great number of the village of Berkendell had died.

Although the small village has recovered from the losses over the centuries that followed, their distrust of dragons and wariness of the gods' ability to protect them remains. It is this wariness that allowed the village to escape the carnage of the Blight. At the first tale of the Starving and the destruction, they closed their Shifting Silvers and prepared for the worst. The Starvation never made it as far as Berkendell, and even when the dragons were reborn and descended upon Solhara, the people of Berkendell were prepared. They had learned from their forefather's suffering and were prepared to slay even dragons to keep their village alive.

Culture



The town of Berkendell is incredibly self sufficient. Although they still practice the worship of the gods, they do not depend on them or expect their prayers to be answered. Everyone in the town takes care of each other and as a result there is no one in the town who goes without food, shelter, or medical care when it is necessary.
