Murder of Crows
Arlun, often called Arlun the Barbarian or Arlun of Peran, was a Kuboran tribesman who united the usually unruly tribes into a conquering army roughly a hundred years ago. This army marched on and conquered Rethem, which was unstable and in the waning years of the Theocracy of Tekhos. Arlun was crowned King of Rethem. His dynasty was short lived. His son was born of a non-Kuboran woman, and the tribesmen refused to follow a “half-breed” who was not raised in their ways. Thus began a series of assassinations and violent deaths of monarchs that has lasted, more or less, to the present.
