Lost City of Asgamoth

Asgamoth was the earliest Ralani City-State on Corwyn; which was destroyed in the year 884 of the Third Age, during the Great Rift.

Asgamoth was an early Ralani City-State, founded in the late Third Age. Asgasmoth grew wealthy via trade with both the Elven city of Selunë and the Dwarf-realm of Khûrzhad. The city was located along the Sea of Ralas. It is said that Asgamoth was the wealthiest and most powerful of the Ralani city-states of the late Third Age, and that their pride and arrogance matched their wealth.

Sadly, the city, and its surrounding territory, were utterly destroyed in the year 884/3 during the Great Rift; a tremendous earthquake that literally caused the entire region to slip beneath the waves of the Sea of Ralas forever.

When the city of Asgamoth was consumed, its magnificent temple to the Sea-Goddess Myrival, located within its walls was lost as well. According to legend, Inside this great temple was the Trident of Myrival; a fabulous magical artifact. To this day, the Ralani people believe that the ancient city-state was destroyed by Myrival as punishment for its greed and vanity.

With the destruction of Asgamoth in the Great Rift, an entire section of land that connected present day Rennsfar to Serathyr fell beneath the waves as well, permanently separating the island of Renthara from the mainland of Corwyn and creating the Iron Sea.

Even today, there are rumors that the city of Asgamoth lies intact; somewhere deep beneath the surface of the Sea of Ralas. Legend has it, Asgamoth will someday rise back up to claim its place among the nations of Corwyn.
