In the southern Tablelands stand the shadow-wrapped ruins of Kalidnay. No one knows why the once-great city of the sorcerer-king Kalid-Ma fell; the only clue was a massive crack that split open the great pyramid in the necropolis outside the city walls.
Those who walk other planes claim that Kalidnay now exists primarily in the shadowy otherworld of the Gray. Strange mists roll through the streets at night, and any creature caught within is destroyed or dragged away to an unknown fate.
The crumbling ruins themselves often serve as lairs for raiders, monsters, and creatures of shadow. A small guild of assassins known as the Hidden make their home in the catacombs deep beneath the shattered pyramid.
