A Shargash the Destoyer Sub-Cult
Mythos and History
In the time of Emperor Urvairinus, Bashekardevi was the Red King of Alkoth. Bashekardevi, like his ancestor, Shargash, studied the Emperor's enemies and learned how to fight them. Bashekardevi did this by going among the Strangers and speaking with them. He traveled among the Horned Tribe and the Goat Tribe. Bashekardevi watched the Wood Tribe fight with the Stone Tribe. Finally, Bashekardevi joined the Ice Tribe and fought the Storm Tribe with them. When Bashekardevi returned to Alkoth he wrote down all that he had learned and presented it to Urvairinus. When Urvairinus led his armies forth Bashekardevi led the Alkothi Battle and everywhere the army went they were victorious for they knew what the foe would do before it did it.
