The Sage on the Vermin

Q: We were told the Vermin Swarm overran Avras. Are they still proclaiming to be the false emperors orhas the city been retaken since the 4th age?
A: In the first days of their emergence, the Vermin took Avras, and held it until the end of the 8th Age. They haven’t been observed in Vetia since Sunna slew the rat King, at least no more than a scattered handful of lone Vermin. In Sonnstahl it’s widely believed the Vermin were destroyed then as a organised force and only scattered remnants remain, but the Vermin have always been good at secrecy.
