The Cataclysm, also known as the Wrath of Mana, was an event which took place at the end of the Second Age. It occurred across the Kabnatan Empire in Gherana and northern Tinadal. Simultaneously, all the cities of the empire were engulfed in ash and their inhabitants turned to stone. Some say the earth split open and fire rained from the sky. The goddess Mana is attributed as the cause of this devastation. Seeker scholars claim she was displeased with the Kabnatan and their empire had become corrupt and evil. The goddess of community cast them out of their homes and reduced them to tribalism. Since that time, many Seeker Kabnatan have devoutly served the gods… while others have taken up the path of the ardent seeker — wishing to hunt down the mortal-goddess Mana and make her answer for her crime.
Mana storms are said to be an echo of this event.
