The highmen established a fortified town, Kolusurt Keep, in the caldera of a dormant volcano to guard its magical power. Jealous of the power there, Lizardman shamans tunnelled through the surrounding earth and used their magic to cause an eruption, throwing the Highman garrison into disarray and seizing the magic of Kolusurt for themselves. Some Highmen were enslaved by the lizardmen while others retreated to smaller redoubts in the area. The Halflings to the south and the Humans saw an opportunity to impose their rule on the area. Besides the arcane power there, Kolusurt also lay astride a trade route between the human Vunchume Cities of the north and the halfling lands of the south.
