Lumnaar Hok is an ancient ruin of central Hiznaar Goz. It was built in the Horgon Era by dragonborn crusaders pledged to Bahamut. It remained a city-state for close to three hundred years.

In 899 HE, it fell to an army led by the Dragon Lord Balfroglemis, head of the Dominion of Resalth. After the sack of the city, most of the city's dragonborn population were enslaved. When Arkhosia crushed the Dominion of Resalth, Lumnaar Hok became one of its holdings.

During the reign of Arkhosia, Lumnaar Hok was the heart of cultural and intellectual enlightenment. It became a thorn in Arkhosian politics on many occasions. These periods of unrest were more often than a not a result of liberal thinkers, agitators, and activists.

In the Third Dragon Wake, Arkhosia's decline was well advanced. This Dragon Wake hastened the downfall of the empire and resulted in the complete destruction of Lumnaar Hok. This happened when an apocalypse dragon named Níðhöggr was awoken from a two millennia long slumber. He took out his rage for being abruptly awoken by attacking Lumnaar Hok. Níðhöggr is solely responsible for destroying the city and killing nearly all of its population. Most of the city's population were not killed by the dragon, but when he died from innumerable hits from arrows, ballista, magical attacks and a few blows from hand-held weapons. When Níðhöggr fell, his blood spewed out of him like liquid fire, raining down and burning everything it touched. The ground this blood touched became like the burning blood gushing out of Níðhöggr's corpse. It spread all through the shattered city and over a large part of Ag Krenok valley.

Even today, some areas of the valley (Ag Krenok) and the ruins of Lumnaar Hok burn as bright and hot as the day they were started.
