Cal’Drin was an Eastern Lands Caerthian outpost which is believed to have it’s origins from some unknown race
Cal’Drin was particularly important in the history of the Mysmaal as it is said in texts of Saint X’Lron that Somnus the God of Shade visited the Caerthians and offered them the gift of Immortality
Scholars believe that Cal’Drin’s original name was Val’Elsir and belongs to a race of unknown origin due to it’s unique gothic style which was later adopted by the Mysmaal on their return from the Plane of Shadow
In particular the throne that was located in the ruins of Val’Elsir was adopted as a symbol of authority for the Caerthians and the newly formed Mysmaal that would rule over theKingdom following their seperation from their original Caerthian brothers
Cal’Drin was discovered during the time of Emperor Galamar Ra’Ern in the far eastern lands of the Caerthians
It was not only an important discovery for historical purposes, but the magical marvels it contained. So great was some of its artifacts they were taken by the Emperor himself. For the first year Galamar took his throne to Cal’Drin and sat atop it, claiming his new name to be Emperor Val’Elsir and being the first on Solinia to sit on its ancient throne. This name stayed within the family for the next 4 generations, after the imperial rule by Emperor Envar Val’Elsir, after which the name reverted back to the Ra’Ern dynasty
Historic documents stored within the catacombs associate the original city (Val’Elsir) as being inhabitted by a race which worshipped The Weaver. It is known that the city was one of many that sat within a Moon that orbitted an unknown planet. The moon was in perpetual darkness due to it’s peculiar orbit around the planet and it’s people were known to be extremely gifted magic users who never saw sunlight.
During the events of Genesis it is believed The Weaver brought the Moon crashing through space and into the planet of Solinia causing massive devastation to the early world and it’s people. Very few members of the race survived, the city of Val’Elsir is one remaining artifact of the this lost people.
Some tales say that the deep hole in which The Anchor which binds the past and present is directly over the massive hole caused by this moon colliding with Solinia
It is speculated that Shai’Din is the last member of this unknown race that inhabitted Val’Elsir due to a hidden workshop found deep within the bowls of the old city
