"Someone at some time now forgotten called the nations the Shattered Continent. It is a place of seemingly endless islands, some great, many small, and it is where the Krol are centered. It is not their homeland. It is said of their home that they were either driven out or burned it down about themselves and thereafter left. It is an exodus mostly forgotten. Their origin before the time of exodus is lost to them. All that remains is myth and tales of birth of the original Krol bursting from the stomach of a sea beast."
