Padiskar was once known as the Shimmering Jewel of Jalmeray, when it was a city famous both for pleasure and for arcane learning. The Arclords of Nex found a nameless horror in the vaults beneath Old Padiskar, and today the city is reduced to being a community of farmers and fisherfolk. The city today rings the ancient ruins surrounding but never entering them. Whatever awful thing the Arclords released it still roams the darkened depths below the old city of Padiskar howling in the blackness below. Unlike many old ruins Padiskar has yet to be reclaimed by the Thakur and local whisper that there may be some fell reason for this. Some have even claimed the arclord released a bound God transported to the island by Khiben-Sald himself thousands of years ago.
