The Land of the Lake
The ruined city of Vaen Barûl was once best described as the City of Dark Magic. The black, spell-inscribed stone which was used to build the city now often lies in piles of rubble. The city was destroyed in a great battle roughly 300 years ago, and most of it’s inhabitants killed or sent back to whatever hell they came from. Before, it was home to a great number of necromancers and undead, with a city watch composed of soulless constructs.
The ruins still carry an aura of evil about them, and since few people feel comfortable in the ruins, no one is entirely certain if the undead and constructs which once inhabited it are gone, or if anyone else with a sinister purpose has made it’s home there.
