Saturdays of Slaughter
This city was once a magnificent city full of many comforts. It was part of a kingdom that called themselves Asram. Asuarini was founded 1705 years ago during the Year of Empty Quests. The settlement quickly grew into a comfortable paradise where anyone could access magic and build their own little piece of paradise. It grew into a metropolis that lasted as long as the rest of the kingdom of Asram. In early -33 DR, Talona released a massive plague that killed crops and cattle overnight all in hopes of gaining more followers. The rest of the city died when Kiputytto, a rival goddess with a similar sphere of influence, used the same tactic on the citizens to try and usurp Talona’s power. The records from Asaurini do not speak of the outcome, but clerics of Talona claim that Kiputytto was slain by Talona in order to secure her domain.
Asuarini is still mostly intact and well preserved, for how old the city is. It is protected by a large roof of natural rock that is nearly spherical in shape. Large towers, over 100 feet tall, dominate the center of the community, and huge estates line the area around the downtown. It seems that even the lower class citizens lived in comfort with aid of magic. The streets are lined with everburning torches that give the whole cavern a dim glow. Everything in the city was built with great care and skill, most likely magically aided. The ornate structures are detailed so that no two look the same, but they all match the neighborhood they are found in.
