Kel Jerud built a tower somewhere in the Kingdom of Ebera. Before he died, Kel Jerud warned the people that if they disturbed his tower, his wrath would be unleashed upon the kingdom. Many years later though, a group of treasure hunters entered the tower, ignoring the warning. Because of this, Goma worms were released upon the kingdom, causing the Goma Plague, which reanimted the dead with a thirst for blood. This caused the kingdom to become quarantined, with no one permitted to leave.
