Kaom Topic /37 ⍟

Kaom Topic /37 ⍟

Lady DiallaOld axe for brains. Kaom had Eternals dragged from their homes all over the south coast.

Like sheep, he butchered them, no matter how desperately they bleated. He adorned his doorways with the heads of women and children.

What makes a hero or a villain? It depends who you ask.
OyunWe read the land, learn its stories. Kaom and his warriors entered those Mines some twenty years before Deshret sealed the Mines and bound our {akhara} to this mountain.

Neither soil nor stone speak of Kaom's return. Perhaps he is dead, or perhaps he merely wishes he was. After Voll, anything seems possible.
OyunWe read the land, learn its stories. Kaom and his warriors entered those Mines some twenty years before Deshret sealed them and bound our {akhara} to this mountain.

Neither soil nor stone speak of Kaom's return. Now we know why. He became a monarch of Nightmare, like Voll before him. It seems the Beast has uses for those with a talent for conquest.
OyunI am told that you have put King Kaom down to his final rest.

Curse-breaker, and now the Murderer of Legends. Great names hatch upon you like ticks on a rhoa.
TasuniMy understanding of Kaom, the man, is that he was a prisoner of his own delusions. Now? He is a prisoner of someone else's.

The power of Nightmare to manipulate the soul never ceases to impress me.

That could be you one day, should you continue to follow this dark and winding path.
TasuniNightmare gave Kaom everything he ever dreamed of. How did it feel to make that dream die?
Kurai, the AdministratorA king is human, mortal, vulnerable to the same temptations and vices as are we all. A legend lives on for as long as it is told, its meaning and message shifting to fit the needs of the speaker or the audience. Kaom seems to have found himself stuck somewhere in the middle.

The greatest lesson to take away from the story of the fallen Karui king is this: A leader is nothing without the loyalty of their followers. And, I suppose, that those followers should still have their heads attached.

A sign for Kaom
to lead his Karui to Wraeclast.
Kaom's HeartThe warrior who

Kaom's RootsDon't flinch. It's a waste of good hitting time.
Kaom's Cache"Treasure that which the Ancestors have gifted you.
For it can be gone between one breath and the next."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom
Kaom's WayKaom guided his Karui across the sea
and spilled their blood on foreign soil.
Replica Kaom's Heart"Useless for our purposes, but perhaps we can sell Prototype #5
to an archmage to fund other experiments."
Headhunter"A man's soul rules from a cavern of bone, learns and
judges through flesh-born windows. The heart is meat.
The head is where the Man is."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom
Meginord's GirdleKaom's strength was rivaled only by
the great Meginord of the north.
The Gull"It is the Gull that delivers Man unto Ancestor.
The consumer of our flesh. The seeder of our
souls unto the earth. We give the Gull his life.
The Gull gives us our Way."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom
Blood of the Karui"Kaom fought and killed for his people.
Kaom bled for his people.
And so the people gave, the people bled,
So their King might go on."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom

It is only good manners to drink your fill."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom
Ngamahu's SignA gift from Ngamahu,
a sign to the Karui to spread like fire.
Given to Akoya, but inherited by Kaom with the swing of his axe.
Valako's SignA gift from Valako,
appointing Kiloava as the Herald of War.
A title Kaom claimed when he ended Kiloava's bloodline.
Tasalio's SignA gift from Tasalio, God of Water,
to the chieftain Rakiata.
Kaom took Rakiata's head and hand
so that his warriors' axes might rise and fall like the waves.
Lavianga's Wisdom"The painful memories are the easiest to recall."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom
Pitch DarknessWith a fire burning brash in his golden eye,
Marceus fired his arrow into the pitch-dark sky,
And seared the hope of surprise,
From Kaom's skulking horde.
Ashcaller"We do not command fire.
Ngamahu lends it, and Hinekora returns it."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom
SkirmishIf two great leaders like Lioneye and Kaom
had been on the same side of the battle,
nothing would remain unconquered.
WildfireNews of Kaom's victory in the south spread quickly.
Those in support of the coming rebellion bided their time.
The rest fled like rats from a fire.
Combat FocusKaom watched the torches patrol the top of the Watch.
He observed the lay of the beach, its barricades and rocks,
and his men in their canoes, ready to lay their lives down for him.
But when his foot hit the sand, he thought only of the fight.
Tavukai"Hyrri and her arrows broke the sacred code, damning herself.
Kaom seized her sacrifice, and in doing so, seized victory."
- Lavianga, Advisor to Kaom

The King's Heart{500 times Kaom's axe fell, 500 times Kaom's Heart splintered. Finally, all that remained was a terrible, heartless Fury.}
Pride Before the Fall{As Kaom slew the last of his kin,
something deep inside him broke.
And through the cracks, corruption,
pure and black, spread forth.}
