It existed before Sheng Seleris and is associated with Lodril in the Dara Happan star charts. Which indicates it's a little more powerful than a mere hero's star.

At its height, it ruled Peloria and Kralorela at the same time. Teshnos is far less clear. The Empire never reached down into Prax or Dragon Pass and in Peloria, it was constrained by Carmania and Sylila. Some Praxians did fight alongside the Horde.
