Archaeological ruins discovered by Waterboy0048 in the deserts south of Fortress al Drake and the Acacia Roads.

History and Destruction

Long ago, in an age before the boarders of Freedonia expanded to their current locations, there existed a mighty empire whose original name has been lost to history. Archaeologists have taken to calling it the Sanaran Empire based upon the first city of theirs uncovered. The Sanaran Empire spanned the entire southern desert and the lands around it, taking part in a vast trading network. Gold, diamonds, emeralds, horses, all flowed freely though al Sanara and other cities of the Sanaran Empire. However, an unknown event occurred sometime around 500 B.R. (Before-Riot), and the empire quickly fell to ruin, with the populations dispersing and melting into the local villages.


While exploring the deserts south of Fortress al Drake, Waterboy0048 stubbed his toe on a rock sticking up from the surrounding sand dune. Upon closer inspection, he uncovered what appeared to be a house or shop, and later understood to be an entire city. Though small by our standards today, during the Sanaran Empire al Sanara was a moderately sized trading post. It is believed that the city was either on the boarders of the Sanaran Empire, or was on a trading route due to the fortress present in the city. Much is still being learned both from this find and others, and maybe one day we will be able to understand what happened to this lost empire and prevent the same from happening to Freedonia.
