The human nation of Tielkar began in Esovel and expanded, seeking to conquer all the world, starting with Keslinn. The members of the empire believed themselves the heirs of Tieldeth, a powerful primordial. The ensuring war was known as the War of the Forsaken. To this day, much about the empire remains a mystery, but its relics are highly coveted. It is believed that the nation possessed the Sword of Unmaking, in which Tieldeth was bound. The empire fell to the dwarven nation of Dumar Kul.
