Maenedhel is the Underdark region beneath Hive. It is best known for being the birthplace of the Khazarkar. In the God Era, Set stole the relic Danzar-Khâls Surveyor and used its powers of life creation to forge a race that would serve as his worshipers. He did this in secret, sequestering them in the deeps of the Underdark. In the Otriring area of Huzar-Arân he created an environment that functioned just like the surface with day and light conditions, changing seasons, and weather. This paradise lasted three centuries before Danzar-Khâl learned of Set's machinations and abuse of his artifact's powers. In the Maenedhel Shattering, the Khazarkar were driven to the surface with only what they could carry. Danzar-Khâl changed the product of Set's doings in Otriring, leaving an area supercharged with life energy. This results in anything living in Otriring to grow and age faster, reaching adult hood in a matter of days, but dying a few days later. This area is so dangerous that anything can succumb to the life energy - including beings like the Higher Powers. Undead that enter the region find themselves withered away in a matter of hours or seconds for the weaker ones, and constructs which are themselves touched with a bit of life energy, breaking down after a few weeks. After death it does not end for the living, for they are reborn in hours and continue the cycle. This endless cycle of rebirth led to some calling the area the Phoenix Gut.
The Underdark region beneath Maenedhel is Xinparak.
