- immediately after arriving on the shores of the Old Kingdoms, the Dragon Armies were attacked by hordes of goblinoid creatures, orcs, giants, and undead, lead by Erinyes (Furies) Generals – known as SOme BAD ASS NAME – and splintered and separated the dragon armies from each other.
- The ancient silver dragon, Barnabus, lead a group of 8000 of her army to an abandoned settlement at the mouth of Dragonmaw Bay, deciding to make a final stand. Strangely, the hordes of monsters and devils did not attack. They waited. And watched. For days. For weeks. For even months. Never once attacking, even though they outnumbered the silver dragon’s army 10 – 1. During that time, Barnabus realized they weren’t attacking because they wanted the silver dragon army corralled. Since the devils need souls to get stronger, keeping the humanoids in a controlled area, with constant danger surrounding them, isolated and alone, becomes a buffet for them. Barnabus gathered her soldiers and told them to turn the abandoned settlement into a city-fortress knowing they would be unharmed by the devil’s forces. In one months time, the City of Veil was created. Barnabus knew this played into the hands of the devils but also knew that she needed to defend what was left of her army, which she became quite attached, and with not knowing where her silver dragon children are, has latched onto her soldiers quite tightly.
Anyway, the City of Veil is a Lair. There’s a cloud castle in the sky that is solid where Barnabus resides. There are a few other solid clouds that house towers and shit.
