History

From Dark City

Uratha have prowled the lands now called New York since before there was a New York, since before it was Lenapehoking, since the shape of the world was different, and since, some say, the Sundering itself.

For millennia, the region was Anshega dominated territory, but the Urdaga always managed to survive in small numbers, far-flung packs, secretive Lodges. The first truly combative Urdaga incursions began in the early 16th century.
