Origins
Deep in the Tangled Woods, many years ago, was a small clan. A tiny clan, in fact; the founder and her mate were outcasts, making a future together. Their strength and bravery slowly attracted followers, and they became a small, tightknit family. They built relationships and allegiances, growing in both size and strength all the time.

They carried along in relative peace for many years, until the winds of change blew an orphaned imperial into their home. With strange shining eyes, the child warned the clan; leave, or many would perish. The clan reacted with suspicion and fear, but the orphan was right. Within days, the dragons of the unnamed clan began to be struck down with a terrible sickness.

The leaders of the clan hesitated no longer; the clan packed up what they could carry and departed from the shadowy lands. Many dragons were afflicted by disease; a wasting fever claimed many who were buried where they fell. Some deserted in fear. Finally, even their leader fell sick, and the clan despaired.

Fighting through her sickness, their leader brought them at last to the Icewarden’s domain. The chill Icefields soothed the fevers of the sick, and finally, finally the clan began to heal. They made their new home in the caverns of a mountain in the Fortress of Ends, and their mages and witches worked to enchant and protect their new home. The wounds from the plague began to heal, and the clan prospered in the frigid lands.

Something, however, was not right. Years-old wards began to fail; charms to keep their home welcoming and warm started to falter, and the cold began to creep in. The old and the frail began once again to fall sick, and the healers were baffled. They turned once again to the orphaned seer for guidance, and again they packed their belongings, tended to their sick, and began to search for a new home.

This time, their path led them north, past the ice floes and into the Arcanist’s realm. The clan’s witches and mages sensed a change in the air; their magics were stronger here, the very air humming with enchantment. Working together with the healers, they began to work on a cure.

The deeper they travelled into the Starfall Isles, the more powerful their magic became, and by the time the clan made it to the Observatory they’d managed to heal all but the sickest of the clan. They made their home on a floating island, a beautiful spec of land hovering in a starry sky. Their mages began to expand their new home, summoning crystals and forging caverns out of magical stone.

Within months, the island was engulfed in sparkling crystal structures, and the Crystal Caverns clan made themselves comfortable in their floating home. They welcome all visitors, but be warned, they may be hard to find…
