Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
Many know that Yaramuke was once a city-state between Urik and Raam on the Road of Kings. Most know that it was destroyed by Urik around 1800 years ago, but the details of the destruction vary from telling to telling.
As told by the elven bard Jarvi…
This ruined city was once ruled by the Queen of Yaramuke, a beautiful sorcerer named Sielba. She and King Hamanu of Urik became embroiled in a bitter dispute concerning quarrying rights to the obsidian on the Smoking Crown. Hamanu resolved the dispute by razing Yaramuke to the ground, using such terrible magic that even the water was fouled forever. According to legend, Sielba’s treasure is still buried beneath the ruins of her palace. If you journey to Yaramuke in search of this treasure, I wish you good luck in determining which pile of rubble was once Sielba’s palace.
