A city in the country of Khannam, founded by a group of adventurers seeking to save the inhabitants of the doomed Underhome. The journey took many months, and they suffered terribly as they meandered through the seemingly unending depths, but one day they stumbled upon their salvation. Stepping out from the sunlit cliffs of the Teodros Gulf, the adventurers were at first terrified to find themselves on the surface. As they looked around at the tropical paradise, however, they were stunned to find none of the death and destruction they had so long envisioned for the surface realm. With the help of local peoples it was not long before they established High Home, a settlement of their own. Thus it was that twenty-one years ago the first Undermen arrived on the surface, claimed a territory now known as Khannam, and founded the city of High Home. Their arrival has ushered in an era of technological sophistication which has since spread like wild fire.
These Undermen brought with them gunpowder, Steam Technology, and all manner of clockworks. They had accomplished with science feats which had previously been managed only by powerful users of magic. In essence, their technological innovations put the powers of the Khert back in to the hands of the common man. Despite initial wishes to keep their technologies to themselves for fear of abuse, it was only a few short years before the founders of the surface settlements began selling their technology in order to bolster their own economy. Now, despite their small size and barely twenty years after their arrival, they are an economic and political powerhouse in this part of the continent.
