of his ways landed him in the Realm of Ravenloft

« Escàllain-Nloígc » /es·KAL·len -- NLögK/ (n.) < Kue, "place(s) forgotten" or "place(s) never."
1) A forgotten place or realm of Arden, which guards the inhabitants of Arden. 2) A coexisting realm which possibly existed before Arden.
3) The Realm where the Westbound Sojourners arrived from, and the realm which is the "convergence" of Shekìnya; the place of the "Abjurants"
and the "Children of the Morning." 4) THE FORGOTTEN REALMS?
« Dhuínneàch cgí escàllain-nloígc còa mo sheàmsíc à cuòunin am gcalàshain à hoíen mír! »
Translation: « Wheels of place-forgotten be more cursed (as a vulgar term) and silent like eyes and ears from that place-forgotten (where)! »
This place is not merely a "forgotten place" but it's origin and dominance are different, than that of the land beyond the Horizon, or "Plíagge," which belongs to the Voice of Àugus. This "forgotten place" is neither an evil realm or a glorious realm, but this realm coexists near the Realm of Arden, and it too is a Realm of Reknown and Wonder, just as Arden. It is rumored that this "forgotten place" existed before Arden, but there is evidence that Arden may be an older place, and the "forgotten place" was created to encompass Arden as protection. This "forgotten place" is possibly the realm where the Westbound Sojourners arrived from. It also the realm where the "lost" Children of the Morning may reside. Is it a Parcel of the Multiverse governed by the Glory of Arden or Shekìnya. Does the extent of the "elevated sunbeam" encompass the peoples and cultures of this land, this "forgotten place." Ancient texts like the Mishnach gorg," seem to suggest that Shekìnya created this "forgotten place" on the same day of Arden. (ref: "tá Mishnach gorg" and "tá Bheàshceànn gorg").
§ King Shafhalóa II §
King Shafhalóa II, the Elfin King of Cátern makes mention of this "forgotten place," or "never place" to his people in a prophecy about the "cloak of evil fire," which most certainly identifys King Ilùviuks in the Sixth Era on Arden's Timeline. Shafhalóa states to his people at Vall, the mythical capital of elves in the East.
« Domhain, domhain níc mheàor, tíra dhoùa an caddeà fairan domhan an droíga cgí Fhaaluír. Alíeth, tíra dhoùa pleàfoín frídh phlían an Phlíagh-Augus. Còa bleácain od cátern, sar òam da gcoímhardeàgras go faelain mo bhí, aàl òuam da hIlùfa-Òuicgs go berbhaògain. àFaira òig an escallain-nloígc tánn thíra dhoùa da Sha Ímheàorcain an Phlían, go cátern nínaòth mír! »
Translation: « Down, down into (the) sea, two towers as pure tumble down as tears from Vaaluir, the realm of clouds. Alas, two towers fall over the pages (horizon) of the Voice. Be wary you remaining, for (a) day of exultation comes more than ever, as (the) day of the "evil cloak of his fire" extinguishes. Forget not as the places never that the two towers of (the) Land of Free-sea as (the) Opening or Horizon, remain therein in places never (mír - where)! »
This text seems to suggest that the "Two Towers," or tíra dhoùa, fell into the "forgotten place" of the Free Sea Land, or Ímheàorcain. This may also be the location where Vínuim, god of order, purged Queen Akkævall's twins much earlier. Daídha and Míshfa, the twins, were taken by Vínuim and purged into the Free Sea by Saà-Vallstràu, the water god of destruction. There was an opening in the Land of the Free Sea, where a "forgotten place" existed. The land of the Free Sea was the opening. It was believed to be a place of safety to protect Arden from the wrath of the immortal children (ref: Tales of the Last Guardian: Volume III; Episode II).
