History:

=Brook empire was the dominating force of the east coast until the Nesaro Empire Army (Dezlan) over came the empire. Forcing its people to flee to the northern mountain realm. Upon settlement , the Brook people had a religious reflection that caused a divide in their spiritual beliefs. One group created Virenia and the other group created Epska.

=Nesaro attacked Brook for access to their gem mines. After a successful attack on Brook the human 3 remaining necromancers reanimated the the dead Brook soldiers. All the reanimated soldiers over took the necromancers causing them to flee. It is unclear and undocumented as to what happened next.

=rumors:

==the necromancers were all killed.

==the necromancers killed themselves to kill the armies

==necromancers fled, the army returning to Dezlan to forever haunt it.

==a necromancer fled into the gem mines and is trapped there

==MAYBE “The Death Witch” short film is one of those witches
