Prior to the Race Wars, the minotaur nation of Leng resided in the northern portion of Kalamora in between Kopiranor and what is now known as Luminaria. Up until that time, the minotaurs had lived a largely peaceful life, content to remain within the borders of their small nation and happy to ignore the outside world so long as it ignored them.
All of that changed shortly before the Race Wars erupted. King Throbain ascended to the throne of Leng and soon set his sights on expanding his nation. When the Race Wars broke out, he was quick to seize on the chaos and his army soon spread out throughout northern Kalamora, conquering large thwaths of both Kopiranor and present day Luminaria. Throbain lent his forces to the orc and giant tribes and soon they too were expanding their borders. Throbain’s army was so fierce that they were the last of the races defeated, and their reputation was such that the humans, dwarves, and elves were not content to simply allow the minotaurs to retreat to the confines of their labyrinthine capitol. Instead, they pursued the minotaurs to the heart of Leng, and ultimately forced them to flee the continent. The minotaurs have since taken up residence on the Isle of Sorim, and once again seem content to ignore the outside world so long as the outside world ignores them.
