The Peste was a disease that swept through the city of Karnaca in the 1300s.

History[]

Brought across the sea, the Peste was originally conflated with irritations of the breath and skin on miners, caused by working deep down to dig up the already dry veins of silver. However, in due time, the Peste revealed its true nature, causing the citizens of Karnaca to turn on one another in acts of insanity-driven violence. As more and more people died while protective measures proved useless, the military of the city at that time razed much of Karnaca to the ground. The city would rebound sometime after that, drawing in new settlers from across Serkonos and beyond, attracted by both the beautiful scenery and the resilience of the people.[1]

Trivia[]

  • Peste in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian can refer to a plague or epidemic.
