Taluk has an illustrious history. Once a stronghold for the Kings of Karim, it was ceded after the 4th King’s son brought an army to bear against his own father.
Not long after however, the citizens who realised they’d been duped revolted against their new ruler and after a brief but deciding battle, the new leader was deposed by the second in command Commander Tarn. Tarn annexed the town to the then fledgling state of Port Haven, guaranteeing it’s stability and longer term survival as a trading port between nations.
Whilst some may question it’s roots, the people of Taluk are generally reserved, preferring not to take sides in any nations disputes. Perferring profit over conflict, they see changing governments and regimes as an opportunity for new trade relations.
In recent times, Taluk has several resident alchemists, several who notably produce a much sort after form of alchemist's fire that burns twice as long as the traditional recipe.
Keep an eye out for next week’s history of Helm and the mines that support it.
Until then, happy deckbuilding!
