Lost City of Ashkavan
Ashkavan.jpg

Ashkavan is an ancient, ruined city located along the shores of the Grafenmyr, at the western edge of the Vakara Grasslands.


Ashkavan was once the capitol of the lost Xholar Empire, the greatest of Hakeen cities on Corwyn, and was home to thousands of its people. The city was a vibrant, thriving center of Hakeen learning, arts, and culture.

In the year 325/4, Ashkavan was destroyed by √úthrari barbarian tribes led by Zhang the Terrible. The few surviving Hakeen inhabitants either fled eastward toward the sea or became enslaved. Currently, the ruins are abandoned, and the √úthrari never settled here out of some strange superstition. It is said that the spirit of the last Hakeen Dragonfly Emperor of the Xholar Empire haunts the ruins, with his fallen warriors as ghostly company.
