Flames over Acahl
The Verishnakt are ancient and powerful entities that embody some concept or thing. They have great power but are also greatly limited, typically not being able to leave a location but being forced to use agents or avatars to do there bidding. The current calendar is dating from the end of the War of Sorcery where mortals battled the Verishnakt killing many of them and forcing the rest in seclusion.
