Great Cataclysm

In 18,000 B.C. Atlantis sank beneath the ocean during what is known as the Great Cataclysm. This event changed the landscape of the world which would be become known as Hyboria.

Legacy in the Hyborian Age

Hyrkanians and Turanians claimed to their ancestors who lived in Zarfhaana worshiped the White Wolf. [8]

Due to the statement that the Hyborian Kingdoms of Koth, Ophir, and Corinthia "regained their independence with the fall of the empire" of Acheron, a theory asserted that those three kingdoms may had not been founded by the Hyborians (unlikely to have dominated those kingdoms at the dawn of Acheron), but by refugees from Valusia, Thurania, and Zarfhaana, rebuilding their culture while the Hyborians were still in the Far North.[9]

Religion

In the days of ancient Zarfhaana, Erlik was stated to be "but a devil to frighten children".[8]

Odin was invoked by Zarfhaanans during the Pre-Cataclysmic Age, circa 18,500 BC.[10]

The Hyrkanians, and later the Turanians were allegedly the descendants of people living in Zarfhaana.[8]
