  • Birth of Myth Nantar
    Nantar, a small town on the slopes of the Hmur Plateau and long the center of Dukar culture, becomes Myth Nantar, City of Destinies, as the High Mages raises a mythal around the area. This becomes the site for much magical research and lore. It is the location of a new central academy for the Dukars, and other schools and towers in the city teach numerous other methods of magic brought by the former surface elves (and some hidden marids' magic). Any Dukars trained at Myth Nantar for the first time, must vow oaths of fealty to the empire and the coronal at Coryselmal. »

  • Start of the Second Dukars' War
    After seventeen years of constant skirmishes amid all the powers of the central sea of Seros (and a resurgence of the sahuagin presence due to lack of order at the Pillars of the Trident), the Orders of Jhimari and Numos took proactive steps toward maintaining the peace by attempting to found a Dukars kingdom centered on Myth Nantar, Nantarum. »

  • End of the Second Dukars War
    Under mysterious circomstances, the powerful city-state of Nantarum loses the war for the Hmur Plateau while under siege from merfolk forces of "King" Ristan. Foreces at the siege noted only a strange humming rising from the mythal and numerous discharges of magical energy lightning the night-darkened sea. When the forces swam into the city, they found the only person alive was the sea elf Dukar Yupal Narlis, his mind destroyed. His thirty Dukar followers and "nobility" stood along the avenue leading to the Council Acadamy of the Dukars, all transformed into coral statues with looks of contrition on thier faces. »

  • Mysteriously, the shields around the Academy of the Dukars expand slowly over the years since Myth Nantar's fall to sahuagin. Now, all areas where the mythal touches are made impenetrable by all matter and magic save corals, sea stars, and fish. For the next 500 years, folk will swim near Myth Nantar less and less frequently, given the haunting singing that seems to emanate from the mythal when touched. Folklore arises noting that the city is cursed, as are the Dukars, until they perform some penance for all the races of Seros. »

The mythal barrier around Myth Nantar crackles and surges but holds against attempts to break the barrier.
