Cippur used to be a town around 20 BCE.

Lore[]

  • According to the guards at Teron Gate, the Imperial Guards took over when he was a kid, kicked everyone out, and turned the town into a fort.
  • According to Clericus at Maadoran Arena district, the Imperial Guards took over Cippur two decades back and ran it to the ground.
"They are supposed to keep peace and mind their own business, but the problem is, they make everything their business. My family is from Cippur. When I was a kid, the Imperial Guards took over, kicked out everyone, except for those who wished to enlist, and turned the town into a fort. Great way to keep peace, eh?

"The bastards are up to something again. Lately they shipped in a lot of stuff - and get this - we are not even allowed to stop them."

—Gate Guard of Teron

The Imperial Guards took over Cippur two decades back and ran it into the ground. Asmara fell a few years ago. Two lordlings tore it apart after their father's death. The way the story is told, the younger son gathered enough support and deposed his older brother, who somehow managed to escape, hired every mercenary company willing to fight for a cut of the action and returned to claim the throne.

"The siege went on for years and by the time the town fell and the mercenary companies took what they considered a fair share, there wasn't much left of it."
