Eftal had maintained many of the technologies of the ancients, from before the Seven Days Of Fire. The kingdom had factories that could create many of the miraculous technologies, including big airships, from the ancient world.
An argument over the royal succession led to a civil war. Fueled by greed, Arms Merchants hunted the Ohmu for their shells to build weapons of war. As a result of this, the Ohmu stampeded in a rage and destroyed the kingdom, the king died and many cities, with their amazing factories, were destroyed. Technologies were lost and the Sea of Corruption spread 2,000 leagues , creating the Eftal Desert.
