It began to burrow through the caverns as they clashed with it. Eventually, it would be ended by the return of Carlyle, who leapt from high atop the entrance to the mine shaft to come crashing down upon the creature.

Kupola also offered a different perspective on the fate of the city, claiming that the uncharacteristically expansionistic empires that arose in ancient times were the result of the influence of Xiphosura Kabuto.
Furthermore, Kupola claimed that the first Dragonstorm was not the result of mortal greed, but instead the result of a spatial anomaly. When Xiphosura Kabuto attempted to manifest on this plane to make peace between the ancient nations, a rift opened to Tytherion, allowing Tiamat’s minions to plunder the gathered civilizations.
Kupola questioned why a place were the Far Realm was near also seemed to border Tytherion, since such an anomaly would usually result in a very different sort of terrible thing.
