|Founded||17 Prey 298|
In 296, Tasartir colonists crossed the channel sea Salzârrâk and then went inland across Azrik. They founded the Andrithiach settlement in the Sorfandien valley along the shores of lake Droorlow. Their goal was to establish their own nation based on noble rule. They were accompanied, willingly, by non-noble families that also believed in rule by long established monarchical traditions that traced back to Gwildath.
Bureaucracy was ingrained in the fabric of every Andrithiachian, it was the basis of laws formulated by the Gwildath, curbing each Kriavian Elf's natural chaotic tendencies. The colonists that left Kriav and came to Bal-Kriav, brought the Gwildath Bureaucratic Codices with them. Andrithiach followed these, just as their ancestors once did at Celanil.

About a year after Andrithiach's founding, the Melephaeusa Kingdom was established. Andrithiach would serve as this kingdom's capital for the next seven centuries.
Before the Gulimor Cataclysm, one could look out from the city's battlements at dense evergreen forests in every direction. Like most place of what the elves named Sorfandien, Andrithiach suffered badly from the ravages of the Domination Wars (995 - 1016) and its resulting cataclysm. The Melephaeusans were the last to abandon the region.
Today, Andrithiach is a great ruin, haven to monsters, bandits, and magical creatures left over from the Gulimor Cataclysm. In more recent time, it has served as a base for minotaur rebels looking to unseat Ba'lith's current leader.
