In northern Brucrumus, the giants of the Titan Era called this area Hleittil. It was named after a stone giantess that had thirty sons and daughters; she died giving birth to her last. This was over three millennia ago, a time when this geographical area was then fertile, the breadbasket for the giants that would come together here and set their eyes on the lands beyond. The hills were tracked with thousands of goat trails and the waterways flanked by farm after farm. During that period of history, the Titan Empire of Cûngin-Zar ruled this area from the great city Bor. After overextending themselves, grabbing more and more lands and peoples under their yoke, Cûngin-Zar eventually fell like the rest of the Titan Empires. Hleittil became a lawless land with no serious authority for long periods of time.
On 25 Saunas 1296, nearly two millennia after the fall of Cûngin-Zarm, Hleittil was forever changed. Sorcerers of an exiled slaad lord opened a rift to Limbo. This caused the chaotic energies of the Chaos Maelstrom to flood through the Sink of Chaos and into the area around it. This warped the land and chaos infused its denizens. Flux became a deformed landscape with misshapen mountains, waterways disappeared into cracks and fissures billowed plumes of varying colored smoke and occasionally released balls of entropic energy.
An age old evil, chaotic, dark, and single-minded in its purpose is at work in Flux.

The Guilson Explorers recorded all sorts of chaos aberrations, slaadi, and people who had once been humanoids but were changed into something born of Chaos. They also learned that Flux's master is a slaad lord named Ushgergoon.
Flux is infused with the entropic energies of Chaos. This makes it a Focus for Entropic Energy. As such, any chaotic aligned creature that battles a lawful aligned creature in this area, acquires the ability to Smite Law on every hit.
