Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Kor Malkosh is a Goblin mining town in central Gristamere. In ancient times, it was the site of a battle between goblin wizards and an invading force of slaadi from the Elemental Chaos. The wizards succeeded in sending most of the slaadi back where they had come from, but they were unable to banish a powerful green slaad called the Madjack. Instead, they imprisoned him deep beneath the earth.
Years later, goblin miners sensed powerful magic beneath the mining colony they had established. Thinking it might be a vein of Residuum, they delved towards it, inadvertantly freeing the Madjack. After the powerful slaad murdered many miners, the survivors hid in a magically sealed chamber.
After some time had passed, the Zhakastir began to notice a lack of taxes coming in from this mining colony. During a visit from his brother, Valkur Narthask, he expressed his concern. When the Borderman was visited by the Fire Wasps, who sought to atone for their slaying of Brekhu, he sent them to Kor Malkosh to see what the issue was. The Fire Wasps slew the Madjack and rescued the surviving miners. It remains to be seen if Kor Malkosh will find a new lease on life.
