Legacy of the Last War
Shadukar, the “Jewel of the Sound”, was once a beautiful city overlooking Scions Sound and bounded to the south by what is now called the Burnt Wood. The city was captured and subsequently destroyed in 961 YK by an invading coalition force of Cyran and Karrnathi armies. Strategically pulling back from the city, the invaders locked its gates and set the city ablaze killing its inhabitants. More than 7000 Thranes died that day.
The city was never rebuilt and most Thranes consider the place cursed. The Church of the Silver Flame sent clerics in to cleanse the place, but the undead there exacted a heavy toll, and the ruins have been abandoned since, except by foolhardy adventurers and desperate fugitives.
