Thular-Tûr was a massive and very defensible fortress of the Burterinii. It was built to guard the southern border with the First Khazarkar Empire. In the Conclave War, the Eldritch Conclave took the Khazarkar Empire to war against the Burterinii. Thular-Tûr was the first holding the Khazarkar troops from Chal-Kazod moved against. The siege of the place was bitter and lasted over a year. Seeking to bring a end to the siege, the web weavers of the Conclave began using ancient Lith-Crillion spells. This caused a rip in the Web of Magic, which led to magical storms. The destruction wrought by this storm killed on both sides of the conflict. In 996, Thular-Tûr was turned to ruins by a magical storm.

It was 996, the third crossing of Urok-Leptyr. A storm was rolling in from the coast, but it was not anything any of us had ever seen or heard of - a maelstrom of magical lightning, tornadoes, and a radiance of colors of the entire spectrum. It tore through the landscape leaving behind lightning storms, plumes of fire, and in some places levitating rocks and other debris straight up. These were all from magic and in no way natural. The storm wiped out an infantry brigade of magic warded troops like a reaper. The few that survived were no longer Khazarkar or even human, some were twisted aberrations of their former selves, while other were polymorphed, changed, or perhaps shape changed into dire beasts and monsters. The storm demolished the enemy hold of Thular-Tûr. For many years thereafter, the ruins were plagued with horse-like monstrosities with long trunks. These beasts disenchanted even the greatest magic upon touch and were impervious to most spells. On the rise of Juniger, we marched northeast towards Ing-Serold. Looking back, the split in the Web was clearly visible a mile out to sea. They say that the magical storms spilled from it long after we were forced to leave for Cinazan.
