Gamma Ray Giants
Founded in part in the foothills of the Barrier Peaks, Tika Town started recently in 569 CY as a lowland camp for an agate mine. The land proved to be fertile and there were small deposits of agates nearby in abandoned Dwarven copper mines.
The town had grown into a mixed human and demihuman population of nearly eight hundred when the giants struck in 583 CY. Many settlers were killed and some fled, leaving only about three hundred survivors to be captured and enslaved.
There have been mixed scouting reports. While most say that the buildings still appear to be burnt out or in ruins, some scouts have reported large caravans headed towards Tika Town from the cities of lower Geoff from time to time.
