Book Text:

Before Green
This is known as the Age
of the Snake. The snake
race known as Shissar,
slithered upon Kunark.
The Iksar had yet to
unite. Our people had yet
to learn the Black Arts and
the ways of Fist and Tail.
Divided, the Iksar were
enslaved by the snakes.
In the centuries before the
Green, the Iksar were
slaves of the Shissar
They ruled from the ancient
city of Chelsith which rested
deep within the land now
known as The Overthere.
From there would sprout much
evil. The Iksar were
tortured like Frogs and
suffered at the hands of
the Shissar. The Iksar who
showed genius were to help

the snakes in their dark
rites. These few were the
seeds of rebellion. The
Iksar began to plot a
revolt, but a greater force
would strike first. The
Shissar were an arrogant
race. The power bestowed by
the gods was not enough.
They made pacts with other
gods and demigods. They
found the rifts of time and
space and used them to
gather magic items once
held by the guardians of
the planes. The Shissar's
disloyalty and blasphemous
pride would bring the wrath
of the gods upon them. No
power could stop the force
to come. A green cloud
formed in the skies above
Kunark. The cloud began to
descend upon the land. From

its green core the face
of death began to form. It
was of no god they knew.
It opened its giant maw
and spoke in tongues
unknown. From the mouth of
death rushed forth a green
mist. The Shissar shamans
began to cast spells in
hopes of shielding their
city and the necromancers
began to assault the mist
with great spells. All were
futile. The mist rushed
forth. The first snakes to
be swallowed by the mist
had their scales and flesh
rot and fall from their
bones. Horrid screams of
suffering could be heard
from within the mist. A river
of flesh and blood flowed.
The Iksar stood and gazed
upon the gristle that was

once the Shissar. With the
Green Death came the
liberation of the Iksar.
The season is now 0 A.G.,
After Green.

What is it for?

Since it is from the Kunark era and pretty much all the quests are already solved, I would assume this is just for background information. Velious came out after Kunark. The funny thing is that Shissar didn't appear in the game until the Luclin expansion.

Anyway, it shows how rich the Iksar history is =P I am proud to be an Iksar =P And I love to kill those snakes!
