That Sinking Feeling
Uräcilmire was once the jewel in the crown of the realm of Kankulēsis; high towers and temple spires dotted the skyline and its palaces were the envy of the Northern Realms, even the capital, Kümos, paled in comparison. But unbeknownst to its people Uräcilmire was built on a huge silt bed.
Over the years irrigation and flooding have resulted in the silt being gradually loosened and as the city grew it began sinking under its own weight. As the River Yaärkal and the Swamps of Shargul closed in Uräcilmire’s people either fled the city or moved to higher ground.
