Once the home of a violent clan of rakshasas, the holy stupa of Khla’Akear is now the monastery of the Yellow Dawn. This order of clerics, monks and wizards defeated the rakshasas, entrapping their souls within Khla’Akear’s dome. Today, the order harnesses the rakshasas’ spiritual energy to perform feats of healing, curse breaking and exorcisms of evils spirits. Khla’Akear’s wizards plumb the depths of new research into enchantment and illusion magic, the forte of the imprisoned rakshasas. Meanwhile, the Yellow Dawn’s monks continue to train, developing new techniques and strategies to defeat supernatural threats. Visitors come from across the land to learn from the Yellow Dawn, explore the stupa’s famous library and train with the fierce warrior monks. Yet, the rakshasas, removed from the cycle of reincarnation, yearn for freedom and a chance at revenge on the Yellow Dawn.
