A schism occurred within the disciples of Sar-Elam, who couldn’t agree on the best way to follow the road laid down by the Seventh Dragon. Sar-Shazzar, the most gifted of them all, decided to travel with Sar-Issus and Sar-Aggreth on an exodus of wizards and like-minded humans to found the Seven Cities, the first kingdom of Magic, in the southern deserts of Sahaar.
Sar-Shazzar gave the Prophecy of the Demon Messiah, which predicted, among other things, that a half-demon hero would someday shatter the Demon Prison and unleash bloody chaos on the world. Sar-Shazzar died in his sleep in 74 YSD. When attendants attempted to move his body to the Necropolis for preparation and burial, it crumbled to ashes.
