Caerdiralor is an ancient Flan kingdom located on the Dragonshead Peninsula, the land now called Onnwal.

History

Caerdiralor rose and fell well over 4,000 years ago (c. -4358 to c. -4217). Obsessed with destroying the dwur and noniz of the Headlands, the priests and mystics who ruled the nation ultimately brought about their own destruction. A cataclysm of unknown nature wiped out the capital city of Myrsyrna and its ruling elite from the face of the Oerth. A few priests and adepts managed to survive, however, fleeing across the Sea of Gearnat to the lands of the Rhugha in what is now called the Bright Lands, bringing with them certain ancient holy texts and relics.

The Rhugha saw them for the evil and danger that they were, and drove them to the edge of the Abbor-Alz (as their descendants would trap the Suel migrants 3,000 years later). There they hid in secret places and found wells of magical power where they could rebuild their temples. Eventually they won the favor of the ruling house of Sulm, where their corruptive influence would doom the entire region.
