Lost City of Khorvis
KHORVIS.jpg

Khorvis was once a thriving metropolis and the bustling capital of the lost Iskari Empire of Iskandar.


The ruins are located on the shores of the Bay of Storms, north of the Theraskan Valley.

As the imperial capital, Khorvis was a magnificent city; with many tall towers and grand architecture. Located in the center of the city, was the opulent Imperial Palace, which housed the legendary Alabaster Throne, seat of the Iskari emperors and empresses for over 1,000 years.

During the reign of Empress Azonia, the city of Khorvis was besieged by the Runelords.

Shortly after the siege began, Ilnavel Cyrenäe sailed east for Corwyn with his fleet of 1,000 ships. Sages agree the city itself was destroyed shortly thereafter, during the events of Skyfall.

With the destruction of the city, the Empire also collapsed.

Even today, the city of Khorvis remains well-known to sages largely because of the Therassic Order, a group of ancient monks based near the city, who maintained all imperial records.
