The Village of Kanniston
The Village of Kanniston is a small plot of farm and cattle land in the midst of the Yumani Plains. The most interesting thing about Kanniston is the large tomb that rests atop beautiful marble pillars (from where or with what money these pillars were obtained no one seems to remember). The pillars are topped with a wide, circular platform upon which sits an ornate sarcophagus (both made of copper) which acts as the final resting place of a local hero, Nindon Harban. Kanniston has a wonderfully colorful story about how Nindon saved the village from a rampaging lightning elemental in ages past and trapped the creature in his shield, binding it to forever protect the people it once terrorized. Nindon’s tomb now acts as a lightning rod to protect the village, and the villagers say that Nindon’s shield rests at the very top.
