This Pyramid of Power is located south of Hullbreaker Bay. During the time of the Lith-Crillion, a race of desert giants called the Dezellâm worshiped the Lith-Crillion as gods. To honor them, they built Gallo-Bagd and the Sands Pyramid of Power. The Lith-Crillion imbued this pyramid with protective and life-giving powers. The Great Oasis's of the Sands of Hell were created by the Pyramid's magic.

It is said that to keep the secrets of its construction hidden, the Lith-Crillion cursed the giants with a degenerating disease. One version of the story says that the Dezellâm wandered the deserts in despair, each day moving more slowly, until finally becoming stone.

Most of these statues are buried under tons of sand, but occasionally, one can be seen in the ever-changing dunes, half-submerged with its arms outstretched to the stars ... pleading for forgiveness.

The Lith-Crillion also used the magic of the Pyramid to shift a five square mile area of Gallo-Bagd into a subterranean vault beneath the Pyramid. This area is called Bail-Foggins Deep.

In 1115 LE, eldritch giants of Gulfrek Hjard sacked the Pyramid. Most of the Lith-Crillion non-combatants made the escape to other Pyramids of Power. They did this by way of structure's teleportation chambers. The giants made off with Lith-Crillion technology, including daggers and swords with blades forged of a piece of Golruwyrm's tail.

In the Year 1436, rebel khazarkars, fleeing religious persecution of the Khazarkar Empire, discovered the Sands Pyramid of Power. They managed to wipe-out the krivian ghouls guarding the place and then established their headquarters in the pyramid.

By using the powers of the pyramid, the separatists of Khimilêth have driven off numerous attacks by the Khazarkar Empire. This has often come in the form of flesh-ripping sandstorms or blistering heat waves.
