Chaldar is a flaming tower that stands in the center of Hitehkel, the Burning Sea of Taladas. The tower arose from the molten lava following the Great Destruction and stands at the exact site where the city of Aurim once stood.
During the Dread Winter when the gods fled the world, the tower came crashing down to sink beneath the lava, as the enchantments that held it aloft dissipated.
In 425 AC, the fell sorcerer Maladar an-Desh used his magic to make Chaldar arise once more, in his bid to resurrect the long dead city of Aurim and restore his empire. However it would ultimately serve as the sorcerer's prison when he was defeated by Barreth Forlo and his companions.
