In its heyday, this city was the grandest in Faerun. Since then, it has been flooded many times, attacked by pirates, and nearly destroyed by a battle between Tiamat and Gilgeam during the Time of Troubles. The army of Mulhorand once occupied the city, with about half of its former population under martial law (if free) or claimed by the church of Anhur (if slaves).
The Undercity is home to monsters such as lamias and wererats, with a great lamia ruling all as a queen. The monsters make occasional raids on the surface. A secret temple to Tiamat also lies beneath the city. The central district, formerly inhabited by Gilgeam and his clerics, was ransacked after the deity’s death.
