During the Imperial Simulacrum, the Eternal Champion had at one point visited the city in their quest for a piece of the Staff of Chaos.

Sometime before the publication of the Pocket Guide to the Empire, Third Edition, A revolution among the youth had occurred against the hierarchial and xenophobic culture that is the High Elven Culture. Multiple movements have risen through the Blessed Isles some of which were more gruesome. One of these groups was The Beautiful, once a peaceful group, now a terrorist group. They've targeted monuments like the Crystal Tower on the peaks of Eton Nir. Eventually they targeted living members of royalty. One of their more gruesome hits was the Princess of Shimmerene.[3]



  • When Arena was going to be a tournament-based game, Shimmerene's team was known as the Titans.[OOG 1]
