Khalidor was a country located in northern Midcyru that was ruled by a line of tyrannical Godkings. Its population was corrupted by the false goddess Khali, who feeds on human suffering. Khalidoran mages (called meisters and Vürdmeisters) use the unnatural vir, powered by a reservoir of magic that is collected from the life energy—or Glore Vyrden—of everyone who "prays" to Khali. Some Khalidoran Vürdmeisters also know the secrets of raising undead creatures known as krul and every variation thereof.
