Thalos, a once beautiful and pristine city of the Rubicon Principality, is
situated halfway between Ralnoth and the southern ocean on the Great Southern
Road. It now lays in waste. Perhaps the dead who were horribly
slaughtered may have been laid to rest peacefully had the town not been
overrun by the demonic hordes. Once known as the city of glory, vampiric
lamias and animated vines now roam the city streets waiting to slay any
foolish enough to enter.
Many uninhabited buildings still exist in Thalos, though none stands which
were not long ago pillaged by the invading hordes, or later by daring
thieves. This does not mean that all the ruins are empty, as there are
rumors of great evil and treasures still lying untouched in the blasted
landscape. Prominent amongst the rumors are that deep within the desolate
section of the city remain most of lost splendors of Thalos' great theatre and art district. Also, travellers
on the nearby Southern Road occassionally report seeing grayish forms
moving within the watch towers at the edges of the city.
Eerily, the gates to the city still hang, with a sign reminding passerbys
of the former glory which was Thalos.
