Kanko was a volcano island in Kang Bay at the end of the Koryo Peninsula in Koryo in northeast Kara-Tur.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

In ancient times, the Kanko volcano rose up out of Kang Bay and erupted; it was said that the very skies over Koryo caught fire.[3] The land was devastated; the city of Old Bejung, closest to Kanko, was engulfed in poisonous gas that killed all the people, before the city itself was obliterated in a matter of seconds and buried in ash.[4] According to legend, the entire Han clan sought shelter in the vast Dang Caverns.[3][note 1]

AppendixEdit

NotesEdit

  1. For simplicity, these eruptions of Kanko have been merged; the intent behind the sourcebook was likely that these were part of a single event. Nevertheless, it is possible that Kanko erupted multiple times.
