Tumbling across several hundred acres half a league west of Sianod in Kastea stretch the crumbling edifices and time-worn avenues of a long dead city that has come to be known as the Northscar Ruins. The architecture suggest a cross between the utilitarian clay and brick dwelling of the saunean cliff dwelling People of the Canyon, yet the embellishments speak firmly of cyclopt influence, peculiar in aquatic motifs and seaside patterns, especially this far from the nearest coast.
The surface of the ruins is rife with animals small and large, and several functioning aquifers attract larger beasts and aberrations. Some tsabils have camped here, yet never for a long time, as the exposed avenues appear to attract the wind and kick up a considerable amount of sickening dust from unseen parts of the ruins.
Below the crumbling buildings, warrens and chambers honeycomb the ground, with the remnants of an old sewer system making up the bulk of the maze. Explorers have been lost with regularity, and the rumors of under-dwelling creatures and societies certainly encourage foolhardy adventurers.
