The phrase “Pre-Sundering Kanaarian Red” refers to a red wine that predates The Sundering, which is how people refer to the meteor strike that happened generations ago. The meteor struck the continent and broke a part of it off. There are now two major landmasses divided by a massive and tumultuous strait, The Sundering Strait. All of the action thus far has taken place on the main continent, called Kavenassa. The other place is called Kur, and Kanaar is a nation on Kur. The Gorgorians, and hence the Hell Pyramid, are on Kur as well.
