Think of them like Grimm’s Fairytales for the Dor.
It is rumored that the Heart Crystal is actually the heart of an ancient dragon, that once ruled the now sunken dynasty. In it’s vanity, it claimed it’s fire breath was so powerful that even Spek’Phyre was afraid to challenge it. Angered that such a thing would be uttered, the Kor descended on the dragon. Kor’Treum pulled it’s heart from its chest and buried it deep within the ground while Kor’Sper unleashed a tidal wave to douse the dragons breath, taking it’s lair along with it. Kor’Spek torn the dragon apart and scattered pieces of it across the map.
Only Spek’Luhna took pity on the dragon, feeling it’s punishment was far too harsh for such a petty crime as vanity, and cast it’s spirit into spek. As it landed it formed the Dragon’s Breath constellation, that flows across the spek like a sea of stars, ever flowing towards the Ember Lights.
Not apart of the original story but often told along with it is how Mirelyn’s Skyrealm is actually pieces of the dragon’s corpse that float in the spek as a perpetual reminder.
There are a few rumors about this floating estate:
- It’s pieces of the Sundered Dragon’s corpse.
- It’s the estate of a powerful wizard who will teach you his greatest spells if you can reach his estate.
- It’s the only place where Kor’Spek, Kor’Sper, & Kor’Treum can take human form and walk around.
- It’s actually pieces of Myos’Kah & Braust that broke off and floated away after a fierce battle between magi.
What is known is that anyone who has visited comes back and claims it’s “just an ordinary estate” and yet can’t recall much details about it at all.
