A'Shorah; which means "Edge of Water," was an ancient Ashanti city which was conquered the Third Age by a Thannish warlord named Gareth Gwynnett. The present-day city of Ashara is located where it once stood.

The city of A'Shorah was built around a great hill, atop of which was a sacred Ashanti temple called "Na'Drak." After Gareth captured the city, he ordered the temple destroyed and built Castle Manticore upon its ruins.

After the destruction of A'Shorah, the Ashanti people were scattered into exile. Their tribes eventually took up residence in the Cinderlands, the foothills of the Frostcrown Mountains, and the Khûrloth Marshes.
