HistoryThe first written mention of Korda is in 120 BO, around 1379 years ago. Around this time this area was inhabited by nomadic Bugfolk. Another tribe of Bugfolk from the more southern parts came up the river and settled down to form this settlement in 187 RO. There were some skirmishes with the nomadic tribe until they merged into one. The settlement began farming cotton, flaxen and silk as well as trading merchandise with the other villages in the Valley of The Sun. The Village started growing and in 994-996 RO a war started brewing. The war ended with The Korda Alliance, which lead to a lot of other species moving into the village. The Korda Alliance is the city's governing organization.
