Maadoran - one of the cities in The Age of Decadence.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Once the jewel of the Empire, now a city of crumbling ruins and forgotten glory. The rivers that fed it dry, its once fertile fields now barren rock and endless, drifting sand. The Great War devastated Maadoran, almost a quarter of its citizens died in the arcane blast that created the infamous Abyss. The sickness that followed it nearly succeeded in wiping out the rest. But cities rarely die with dignity. Man returned to Maadoran, scavengers seeking to loot the treasures of the past, oblivious to the weight of history around them as they squabbled over food and gold.

Maadoran was one of the largest pre-war cities and its palace was an architectural and technological marvel. Four towers surrounding the palace were ready to generate shields, protecting the palace from arcane attacks. Eventually the towers were disabled, but the palace survived. House Aurelian claimed Maadoran after the war and took over the palace and its famous library containing thousands of scrolls from all known lands.
A maze-like miles-long district avoided even by guards. It's that proverbial rock-bottom you'll end up at when you make too many wrong choices. Ages ago it was a nice and quiet temple district. Since then the temple was raided and almost destroyed, and what's left of it changed hands many times, until the thieves guild decided to move in, controlling the entire district from there.
