Vîlnên is an Underdark empire of Maleddanar. It was formed late in the Lith-Crillion Era, two years after Garâl-Thûru defeated the rival city-state Galir-Khizad. After its formation, rebels of that defeated city-state, mostly Mîmêk and derro, continued to pose a threat. The Mîmêk, especially the die-hard devil worshipers, were the most troublesome. Their raids were done more for capturing people than plunder. The captives were then sacrificed to diabolical powers like Asmodeus. Because of the dark beliefs of their foes, the deep gnome inquisitors of Geb spurred the empire to war. They sought to liberate the Mîmêk and derro from the influence spreading by agents of the Hells. A decade long war ended up with nearly twenty thousand Mîmêk in chains. For three generations they labored under deep gnome masters. In the Galir-Khizad Uprising, the slaves gained their freedom and seized half of Vîlnên's territory. The deep gnomes abandoned Galir-Khizad to their enemies.

The most hotly contested area of Vîlnên and Taklumlode is Zirâg-Tharam. This area has vast mineral wealth and religious significance to the Church of Geb.
