Hydrafel Named after an event that started as the first construction began on this city, is ripe with history and culture. Hydrafel was built as a way to deal with incoming refugees from Safe Haven after the huge Daemon attack. Being soon overwhelmed with shelter and food needs, Shotakan gathered many of the refugees, 100 chi warriors and sent them with 30000 BP worth of supplies. The people traveled to where a good location would be both for defense and trade. On the first day of their arrival the people were alerted by a large number of roars and cries. Sensing a potential threat the people investigated. What they found was hard to believe . A 5 headed Hydra was attacking a young white dragon. Immediately the people decided to intervene at great risk to themselves. After distracting the beast and finally killing it, with amazingly 0 casualties, the people then began to prepare suddenly for what was to be an angry mothers wrath. Before the 8X size mod dragon could unleash her fury the hatchling moaned out for help and that it was still alive. Once healed the hatchling explained that the humans, armed with fists and spears managed to defeat the Hydra and in doing so saved its life. The now humbled and thankful white dragon presented the people a reward of 10 white scales big enough for 10 full suits of dragon scale. In addition for saving her child she swore an oath to protect the people of the now named Hydra fel.The people of Hydra fel survived not only an undead attack, but a King Hydra attack as well as bandits. When the construction of the town hall was just started the city was attacked by a red dragon. Being bigger than their own dragon he was nearly ready to destroy all they had worked for. In a show of courage the citizens of Hydrafel once again set out to deal with a large threat. At that time the white dragon mother appeared to defend the people of Hydra fel. The red dragon of course didn’t play fair and lined his claws with poison that even the white dragons impressive healing abilities could not over come, and she fell to the red dragon. In a fury never matched the citizens of Hydrafel began to attack , catching the red dragon in the middle of his victory and by surprise. The red dragon fell directly in the middle of the town hall , where he was disposed of. His blood was said to be fiery. It was at this point the Order of the White scale was created, its members presented with a set of the white scale armor. The scales of both dragons were used in the creation of armor for the best and elite of the cities soon to be Knight hood. The tactics such as shield wall were passed on to future generations.Remorseful the white dragon hatchling went into hiding. The people now indebted to the hatchling raised it, and provided food until it was old enough to fend for it self. Upon maturing the hatchling became a young adult and realized that the people of Hydrafel were of good nature and worth honoring his mothers promise .Later on other cities learned of both the battle and the building of hydra fel. The elves in particular sent emissaries including an Elvin prince. The acting ruler a Were Tiger of whose name is to be forgotten, was said to have treated this emissary and his legion of laborers so poorly that the prince nearly died. Upon their return the Elvin king was so infuriated, so insulted he amassed a large army to lay waste to Hydrafel.Upon his arrival to Hydrafel the Elvin king demanded retribution. The demands were as follows, dethrone the present ruler and the people shall be spared.Honor bound to serve his people the were tiger stepped down and accompanied the Elf King. As a reminder of the fledgling cities wrong actions the Elvin king planted a large tree in the middle of what was at the time an immense tower being built. The tree smashed through the roof tops and was said to tower over much of the hill side. In secret this was actually a gift. It was a rare tree of life. This tree would bring prosperity to those who treated the city and its environment with respect, and doom to those who did not. The Elvin King decreed that should the tree be cut down or harmed than the entire Elvin nation would swarm in and wipe out the city.As promised with respect to nature and its environment the city flourished, becoming one of the strongest of all the nations.The were tiger was implanted with a curse that none should recognize him for whom he truly was and all memory of his identity to be wiped from the memories of those who met him.Obviously it is not known what happened to him as no one remembers him.After a while hydra fel was faced with giving tithes to Shotakan for its roll in its creation. By now a council lead city was deciding what to do. At this point a relative no one on the political council stood up and demanded action. When none was proposed she went to all the merchants and united them under a merchants guild. After gaining her full support she literally shut down the city until she was implemented as city council head of trades. After being successful she slowly gained more and more support. Oddly enough it was from people and councilor members that only days ago had spoken against her propositions. She then began fortifying the city and saw in the creation of all the other guilds which she of course was head of. When all construction was complete, the city was wealthy and no council members were left to stand against her, she declared herself Queen with a suddenly agreeable councils support and declared Hydrafel an independent nation.Shotakan and Hydrafel were to go to war but somehow a single message prevented this. After which Shotokan recognized the independence of Hydrafel. The history and pride of the Knight hood gives Hydrafel one the most impressive standing knight hoods to date though many fear they will soon be used for less than good intentions.
