Samparidia, The Fallen Empire
-A wall of inky blackness of storm clouds and lightning bars the west of Relentless Ocean, rising from the tempestous waves up to the sky as far as the eye can see. There is no way to go around it from by sailing south or north since it seems to go all the way.
-Ancestors of Samparidians are rumored to have travelled Kimeron from beyond the Black Curtain, and these people used to call themselves Ardaccs. Not much else is known, or remembered. That was the First Crossing. After that, it was crossed and returned only once more. A very long time after the coming of Ardaccs, this time an imperial armada supposedly protected by blessings of Sampar travelled beyond the Black Curtain and returned (See Askandoth). That was chronicled as The Second Crossing. Except these two occasions, no one is known to have crossed the phenomenon, not even get closer to it than a day’s sailing distance and live to tell the tale.
-Ancient mariners of Askandoth knew ways to get close to the wall with techniques forgotten, and map the region. If anyone has their notes, it should be Cartographers’ League.
-It is rumored that Askandoth cartographers and Samparidian astronomers calculate an eastward movement in Black Curtain.
