The fabled homeland of the Lemur Race.

History

After being disfigured by Talad, the God Laanx roamed the Stone Labyrinths for a long, long time, before emerging into a great cavern larger than far than the one he had created with Talad and named Yliakum.

In the middle of the cavern, was a great lake with teeming waters and fertile shores. Laanx's creations, the Lemur people, who had been following him, worshipping and honouring him, believed that their God had brought them to a new home. Their praises and thanks to Laanx echoed in the cave and many sacrifices were made. They called the place "Kadaikos".

In that moment Laanx became aware of the presence of his followers, and he was stricken by their faith and ingenuity. His heart became a little softer, and he gave his people many powerful and useful things to brighten the cave and make the lake and its shores a place to live. The Lemurs in turn multiplied rapidly and built ten prosperous towns.

For a long while, Laanx ruled Kadaikos harshly, setting inflexible rules and a strict hierarchy. He enjoyed ruling, and became hungry for power.

Then one day, Laanx remembered the promise made by Vodùl. Thus, Laanx returned to Yliakum in order to lead the other races to Kadaikos so he could rule over them, too.

In his absence, a Black Flame appeared. Believing it was a part of Laanx's soul, left to rule his people while he was gone, the population of Kadaikos soon fell to its power.

No records survive from what happened. Rumours of a widespread disease exist, but there has been no proof...

Environment

Kadaikos was probably a beautiful place. The Lemurs of Yliakum are known for their innate aesthetic abilities. Unfettered and undiluted by other races and their cultural influences, it is highly likely that the ten towns of Kadaikos were visually stunning.

However, after the Black Flame took power, it may be that Kadaikos has become a very different place.

Government

The Lemur Population in Kadaikos follows a very strict hierarchy, respect and compliance of which is impressed on the children from a young age.
