Chronicles of Skythia
What was once to be a large necropolis on the shores of Lake Nen, built in honor of the first emperor, is now naught but rubble & ruin. Construction began shortly after the death if the first emperor, to forever leave a monument to his glory behind as a beacon to show the way. Building went quickly and within a few years was nearly ready for the emperor’s body; having already moved his retainers and loved ones into residence. But it was not to last, destroyed one night in a monumentous fire, the marble & gold structures burnt and shattered, the wntire necropolis razed to the ground; some said Pelor destroyed it for being an impudent eyesore, other say the ghost of Fastomiel destroyed it in vengence, others yet claim the dead claimed it or that it was destroyed by the Empire’s enemies.
Now it serves as a settlement for the Skull Crusher tribe of Orcs, none dare stay within the city, but it’s materials serve as building material for their makeshift town.
