Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
A great city of the Green Age, Celik is now a ruin, but it has not been deserted. Over the centuries, the city became a meeting place for nomadic tribes drawn by its excellent wells and the shelter offered by its crumbling walls. Dune traders followed the nomads, setting up seasonal posts, and eventually, escaped slaves, outcasts, criminals, and others seeking refuge or opportunity found their way to Celik. From time to time, the ruins fall empty again, but sooner or later someone will settle in the old city’s outskirts.
