Khazgryn - Empire of Chains
The Khazgryn (or “Crown of Chains” in their native tongue) have been traffickers of flesh for as long as anyone can remember. But it is not just the intelligent races of the primordial forest that they seek to chain, but its beasts as well.
Legendary are the blood and brutality of the Khazgryns pits, where they match slaves and beasts against one another…fighting to the bitter end. More civilized are the ruling houses and their “Hunts” (wounding a slave or beast and then hunting it down for sport).
The Khazgryn work within their own borders with impunity, and even illegally outside. The Crown of Chains has a shackle in every kingdom…whether by light of day or hidden in shadows.
Khazite slavers clip the points off the ears of male elves. Believed to be a natural aphrodisiac, the ear tips are dried and ground to a powder to sprinkle over food.
Also the nation’s crest A Crown, is a Ouroboros (serpent biting its tail) of iron, its body links of chain. Each link representing one of each of the ruling houses.
