The End of the V Age
The Ran Gilde (Golden River) rises in the Spine of the World. On it’s circuitous trip to the Western Ocean, it washes the lost city of Azerac, as well as the basin of one of the most fertile regions in the known world. The lands around the headwaters of the Gilde teem with mineral and other natural resources, and in earlier periods, this river was the backbone of Manöel’s economic power.
With the coming of the duergar, and the weakening of Ugarit and Manöel, the area around the river became depopulated, and eventually, the city of Azerac itself, jewel of the northern lands, was abandoned.
