Zhadun is an ancient dwarf civilization that once spanned across the Carridion Sea, from Tura to the Shaili Mountain Range. Originally a collection of nomadic tribes in the Audrin Dunes, two brothers, Huldram and Mharis, united the tribes and stole the power of an ancient Crystal Dragon, gaining the abilities equal to that of a chromatic dragon. They bargained with the gray dragons of their deserts, and created the Harbingers of Ash, an order of dragon riders imbued with the strength of Primordials. They conquered the Anquet Empire and freed the drow enslaved by their red dragon masters. These drow then founded the city of Ivael Aushik, and willingly sent their sorcerers and rangers to aid the Zhadun as they conquered the surrounding lands. The eladrin of the Earlien plains resisted for thirty years, but eventually surrendered; and their Bladedancers became the Ohbrinn Dynasty’s personal guard when in repayment for their surrender, King Ubran saved the eladrin folk from a terrible curse.
