Belêth-Kazîr was built in the Lith-Crillion Era by Gimir-Zarun and a group of like-minded eldritch giants. It was built as a place for studying and furthering the advancement of the arcane. The experiments in this place led to the changing of the forest Nelaryotar.

In this crystalline tower, an insane Lith-Crillion used a forbidden magic to create a spatial rift, swapping a forest on Kriav with one from the world Bal-Kriav. This was supposed to be temporary, yet for reasons unknown, perhaps a breakdown in the arcane energies of the Web, it was permanent.

Thereafter because of the magical monsters and anomalies of Nelaryotar, Belêth-Kazîr was strengthened. A series of permanent prismatic walls were erected to protect vulnerable areas and many golems were fabricated to help guard the place. These defenses could not stop the instability caused by the arcane energy coursing through the forest. As a result, parts of Belêth-Kazîr defy physics and the laws of structural integrity. This is reflected in walkways that jut out from the edifice and are unsupported yet are as strong as if they were and towers at right angles to the central structure which would normally collapse for lack of support.

Inside Belêth-Kazîr is the arcane forge Gimir-Zarun Arcaneum. This has been used to create blutium golems, Robes of Belêth-Kazîr and many other magical items like cloaks, robes, staffs, rods, and wands.

Belêth-Kazîr is a place of arcane learning rivaling places like Belras Foroderch and the Magis Institute. It is run by eldritch giants and generally neutral in its dealings with visitors and the affairs of the lands around them.
