Cangdon was a hotly disputed minotaur fiefdom of Clan Bos. In recent years it was taken control of by the warring faction of Clan Syncerus minotaurs. It is rumored that the only true heir to the fiefdom wanders the world with hopes of someday returning to the homeland and restoring the glory of Clan Bos.
A border skirmish in the mountainous region west of Butte was heralded as one of the most bloody battles the continent has seen since the great war. Shadar kai were brought forth from the Shadowfell as mercenaries. Crowds of onlookers gasped in fear as the Shadar kai mercenaries marched into the Bright Place with banners flying and the sun reflecting off their strangely colored armour. The glorious day would later be tarnished by death and defeat. For all their training, skill and tenacity, the Shadar-kai mercenaries were outnumbered and outmaneuvered. They were crushed utterly by the opposing forces.
