The cause of the phenomenon called a Time Fracture, has never been established. The Aerdhaith believe that the deity Chronos, or mischievous royal time dimensionals are involved in these fractures in time.
The isle of Arcana has several Time Fractures. These areas of distorted time are said to take a creature back in time to the era of the Lith-Crillion. In 1834, Zhuts Explorers claim to have entered one of these Time Factures, conversed with a Lith-Crillion of the Lith-Crillion Era.
