Lost City of Zangaro

Located along the Bloody Coast of the Sea of Orel, the lost city of Zangaro was once the capital of the Sultanate of Kashar.


Legend has it; thousands of years ago, this ancient and magnificent Kashardi city was the grandest and wealthiest city in the known world.

Zangaro was founded by a heroic figure known only as "Khem;" who became the first Sultan of the Kashardi people.

The city boasted many lavish palaces, tall stone towers, and its citizens held untold wealth.

The people of Zangaro traded with many far-away cities, including Ko-Dan, Malvatis, and Varistan. Its Sultans ruled over most of what is today called the "Valley of Lost Cities, and much of the surrounding region."

Religion was sacred to the Kashardi people of Zangaro and it is known they worshiped a series of Gods from the sea; known as "the Deep Ones."

Unfortunately, these sea-dwelling beings worshiped by the Kashardi people may have been the source of their downfall. Legend has it that the Deep Ones became angry with the unbridled pride and greed of the peoples of Zangaro.

Fall of the City


One night, after a massive celebration, the city went to sleep. A strange green mist enveloped the city during the darkness and cries and screams were heard throughout the streets.

In the morning, a great tidal wave crashed through the entire city; utterly destroying it. The Following day, the entire population of Zangaro had disappeared; not even drowned corpses could be found among the shattered ruins.

From that time after, the city ruins have been avoided by the Kashardi people out of fear and superstition.

When the Sultanate and its magnificent city were destroyed by these mysterious events, most written records were lost.

Therefore, little is known of the Kashardi culture today. Several scholars have theorized that these ancient "Deep-Ones," were in fact, the race of Kopru; who may have conquered the city and taken its population as slaves back to their watery realm.

Today, only a few stones and blocks along the shores of the Bloody Coast remain to mark Zangaro's location. The region surrounding the ruins is known as the "Parchlands," and is considered cursed.

In fact, several Kashardi tribes roam the borders of the Parchlands and will kill anyone who tries to enter the region or explore the ruins.
