The Krathno – or Marrilit as the Tsiks call it – is a piece of land between the two violently rapid Lithalai rivers coming down off the Grey Peaks. It is an inhospitable stretch of cliffs, marshes, deep pine forest and sharp edges, that only belongs to wild animals and the halfbird Tsiks. Noone else care to try to make it livable. The Lithalai join at the bottom of the Krathno wilds, and their common waterfall pours into the wide Grey River that flow along the side of the Grey Mountain ridge. On the other side of that river is Krathno town. It is a human settlement, well established over the centuries, but the people there still gather their animals into barns and under roofs at night.
