Iskandar is located far to the south in the Wyn Myr, below the continent of Eryn Norvë. The only known human settlement on the continent is the long abandoned city of Khorvis. It is original home of the Iskari people, and was once part of their empire. The Iskari Empire was a great human civilization that ruled much of the continent of Iskandar, but that empire was destroyed thousands of years ago, and nothing remains except for ghosts and ruins. Two other lost civilizations were once located on the continent; Kalinor and Jandelay, but very little is known of either of these two cultures or their peoples.
In the year 1137/3, a meteor shower devastated the entire continent in an event known today as Skyfall.
