From PathfinderWiki

The Northmounds were a region of central Sarkoris which was known for its many tombs and barrow mounds. It appeared that the barriers between the planes were weak in this region, and numerous strange creatures could be found here.1

The cult of the demon lord Deskari, lord of the Locust Host, was strong in the region, and menaced the folk of Sarkoris until Aroden drove the cultists into the Lake of Mists and Veils.1

The Northmounds were peaceful for many centuries, until the death of Aroden. At that time, the gate to the Outer Rifts known as the Worldwound erupted in the region, transforming the Northmounds into a vile, twisted landscape, called the Wounded Lands, and spewing forth a horde of demons which destroyed Sarkoris.1
