20 miles north of the village where the Americans resided, close to the Fourth Wall, the grass turns black and Monsters roam the land, fighting against each other and looking for Humans to feast upon.
That village was eradicated during a demon attack by eight Demons and a Troll, while Tom the [Clown] fought against them. The buildings were destroyed, all inhabitants either killed or fled far enough during the initial attack.
- Note: In the Interlude, "American Group" stated that Karaz was a city; while in the first two clown chapters, the Americans reside in a village. Either Karaz is not actually a city; or the village is close to the proper Karaz.
