Trilok (Drelåkh in Khellakh) is the southernmost land mass on Ramath-lehi, surrounded by the Kaushal Ocean. It is the home of the Khell, an old Pendragon subspecies known for being both brutal warriors and genius inventors. In some ways, that duality could be said to reflect on the continent as a whole; Trilok's main contribution to Ramath-Lehi's development is largely a technological one, but it doesn't take much to find a remnant of the continent's violent and bloody history - both between Khell cities and against forces from outside.
¶ Geography and climate
The climate of Trilok, being entirely within the planet's antarctic circle, is a cold and at times unforgiving one. Like Dhruv, Trilok has polar seasons, meaning that in winter there are days where the sun does not rise, and in summer there are days with no night. How long the midnight sun and polar night last depend on how close to the south pole one is.
- Cronvint (Crønvint, "green winter")
Sometimes called "the fortress which defies the coldest winters". This name may have come from the fact that it used to be a heavily-fortified citadel.

Polsuden is built, making it Trilok's newest city and the one closest to the South Pole. Notably the city is entirely underground.
After several thousand years of careful political manuevering, the Jarkorli unite the remaining noble families and the people of Trilok under one rule, creating the United Empire of Trilok and beginning what is known as the Jarkorlian Era. In celebration, construction begins on the new capital, Cronvint, and their new castle, Cronvintok.
The Great Lockist War ends, with only a tenth of Trilok's population still alive. In the ashes of the conflict, a new family - one descended from political marriages to secure off-shore alliances - emerges. This family: the Jarkorli.
Long-running tensions, economic and political problems come to a head when a young Craxela prince destroys the capital city of Craxa (modern-day Cronvint) over inheritance issues. The resulting fallout begins the Great Lockist War, the worst war to ever wrack the continent.
The end of the "Ten Millennia of War" and beginning of the "Pax Trilok", a period of relative peace.
Beginning of the "Ten Millennia of War", with constant wars between the various countries of Trilok - and against foreign powers.
