- Persecuted monks and temple guards flee from the wrath of Shou Lung. They go southwest into the mountains over the next 55 years. Avoiding the local barbarian tribes and having to battle monsters, they eke out a meager existence in isolated mountain holdings and call themselves lamas. They are the precursors to the realm of Tabot.
