The Kessex Hills region has changed a lot over the past 250 years. It encompasses parts of old regions such as the Talmark Wilderness, Tears of the Fallen, the Black Curtain, and Kessex Peak. Looking back on my ancestor’s notes, this area used to be inhabited by animate undead skeletons, minotaurs, imps, oakhearts, and mergoyles. Now it’s mostly filled with centaurs, bandits, krait, Destroyers, ettins, and trolls.
During her struggle to overthrow the White Mantle, Princess Salma and the Shining Blade used the Talmark Wilderness to setup a camp to launch their coup on Lion’s Arch. Her success transformed their simple tents and training grounds into the fortified complex we have today: Fort Salma.
With the passing of time, Fort Salma serves a new purpose for Kryta. Seraph soldiers train, protect and watch over the people that live in Kessex Hills. Centaurs and bandits have several large camps and regularly raid human settlements.
