The Steep

“Days later I reach my destination.  The Steep.  Long ago, mighty Ka’ii warlords lived here.  Until the Age of Blood.  When wars raged to win Tyon’s love.  Thousands perished.  In the end — still Tyon was unmoved.  The warlords died.  Unloved and filled with despair.  The Steep is haunted.  But the legend led me here.”

Ah’kee: The Lost Rulers

No’madd is taken into Whispers Cave and shown images of a race who lived thousands of years before he was born: “The Ah’kee. Tyon’s children. Their kingdoms stretched along The Waves. A noble race. As gentle as they were wise. Undone by dark sorcery.”
