Background

Ariakan's Lorebook - Taladas

Lord Ariakan, founder of the Knights of Takhisis, did visit Taladas but briefly in the twilight of the Fourth Age. A contingent of Knights was stationed in the southern isles to prepare for Ariakan's conquering army. They do not know that Ariakan will never return.
