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 behind these distortions in time.
The isle of Arcana has several Time Fractures. These are said to take a creature back to the Lith-Crillion Era. In 1834, Zhuts Explorers claim to have entered one of these Time Factures, conversing with a Lith-Crillion of an earlier time.
