The Widow Harun
These majestic flying creatures are fantastically rare; only a handful are known to exist in all of The Eastern Realms. A mated pair of these beasts in The Unthangol Mountains was found and tamed by the Tuigan around the turn of the century. They intended to use them as aerial gunships. The Tuigan modified their magically enhanced ballistae and bombards to be carried on the creatures’ broad backs. The result was a flying platform capable of supporting over a dozen of these formidable weapons and their crews, on rotating platforms to give a 360’ field of fire with their magical long-range starburst shot.
The soarwhales saw combat during the destruction of the cities of Unther in 1399 and again in 1413 when Mongke reduced the cities of Veldorn. After the death of Subedei Khatun, the pair was divided. One of the creatures, flying from a home port high in the Ulgarthan peaks of Thommar, is now being used by Mongke in his periodic attacks on The Utter East. The second remains at the original home port in the hills behind Demonblood Dam, where it is controlled (for now) by the remaining Noyan of Subedei Khatun, and used primarily to surveil the area.
