The Betrayal of the Stars
A once great magical and technological marvel, this sprawling metropolis in the middle of the arid, hot and dry Rachiel desert has since become a shadow of its former self. Originally commissioned by King Dagetheure of Cumberland 300 years ago, the College of Mages devised a method in which they encompassed an entire, city-sized area of the desert plain and covered it with a huge magical dome. The Mages controlled the environment and created a habitable land, an oasis in the middle of the sprawling desert. In the 300 years that have followed the sprawling metropolis has fallen into disrepute and disrepair, although many people still live there it’s not the beautiful bastion it once was. The Crimson Rose maintain a strong presence in the city and many suspect that they are the real puppet masters behind the squabbling sham of a government that exists within the dome.
