Kalamanda is a city located in the most Northern part of Shurima. It was populated when a mass deposit of gold and gems and two nexuses were discovered near it. The deposit has led the Empire of Noxus to potentially invade the location.
Kalamanda was once a sleepy non-descript village located at the Northern part of Shurima, only moderately known as a decent place to fish for Valoran trout and not much else.
Today the city is venorated for its gold and Sing-Stones. Its ruler, Coucilman Reyes, enjoys Zaunite gifts.
The Long Sleep of the Brackern
Centuries ago there lived a race of creatures as ferocious as they were wise. The brackern were unusual beings blessed with the earth's primal magic, embodied in the form of crystals. Their kind knew of an arcane ritual to bind their life's essence to a crystal, communing with the magic embedded in it. With this power, the brackern thrived in the Odyn Valley, protecting both creatures and crystals alike. Despite attacks from those looking to claim the primal magic, it seemed that nothing could get past the brackern's defenses. Nothing, that is, until the devastation of a Rune War.
A vicious battle was fought near the Odyn Valley and the unleashed chaotic magic poisoned the crystals. The brackern began to grow sick and die, and no amount of defensive magic could reverse the effects. To avoid extinction, their only course was to hibernate underground until the wars stopped. The strongest, most intelligent brackern hibernated closer to the surface to awaken first and assess the world's condition for the return of their race.
