Skuld, the City of the Gods, was founded over 3,600 years ago. At its height, it contained well over a hundered thousand inhabitants. The tumult of the Spellplague shattered Skuld, buried its neighborhoods, toppled its towers, and drowned its fleet. Other parts of the city vanished, dissolved completely in the cataclysm, or were transposed into vanished Abeir. Now the city exists as a subterranean warren of broken streets, collapsed temples, and guttering magical curses.
The buried City of the Gods once housed temples and the incarnated Mulharandi deities. Of all of Faerun’s ruins, Skuld is the pearl explorers seek most. It is also the most dangerous locale, its buried vaults and catacombs simmering with the still potent guardian magic and curses mouthed by long-dead deities.
