The Lost Lands
Merapis-City of Arcane Knowledge
Rising high above the Dark Waters, there is an immense dragon turtle that floats lazily among the clouds. Gently flapping two massive wings that grow out of its shell, the colossal beast moves slowly along the coast of the ruins of the Elven Nation. It pays no attention to weather or other flying beasts. Few would even know of its existence, if it wasn’t for the massive shadow that it casts on the rocky shoreline below.
Now the dragon turtle itself is unusual enough, but what really is intriguing about this beast is the fact that a large city has developed on the back of the flying behemoth. Wizards, sorcerers, and other students of arcane knowledge travel to the city of Merapis. Grand libraries, almost as extensive as the Citadel of Knowledge, have been constructed. Surveying parties travel to the ruins of the Elven Nation, trying to uncover secrets destroyed in the Cataclysm. Several colleges and universities have grown here. Violence of any kind is forbidden. Violators are thrown overboard to their death or offered to the dragon turtle as a tiny morsel. Grand Wizard Kereptis is the mayor of the city.
