Beriata is a region now located on the northern edge of the world, northeast of Morestine University. In the year AL 539 the Beriata Compound was established as a monastery. The monks at Beriata became renouned for their devotion to the arts of medicine and their spiritual development.
In AL 833, all of the monks of the monastery except for one were killed. This event is referred to as the Beriata Massacre. The surviving monk refuses to share any information regarding the event. Beriata has since become inhabited by monsters.
The Massacre roughly coincides with the beginning of the increase in monster population, and it is speculated that the monks may have been holding this increase at bay with their spritual practices.
