Samparidia, The Fallen Empire
-Westernmost city of Askandoth, near Relentless Ocean. End of the known world, a city of sailors, explorers, adventurers. And whalers.
-Name possibly derived from the ancient structure in the sea, a long wall functioning as a jetty and forming an artificial harbor. The wall seems to be crafted from a monolithic coral-like stone, turquoise in color. Attemps to chip the wall has been unsuccessful.
-Whaling is the primary occupation of the folk. About 25 years ago an epidemic hit the Empire lands, and the cure was derived from a blubber of specific species of whales in Relenteless Ocean. Several families made fortunes from whale fat.
-Body of a hunted whale is completely processed and used, most parts as food and delicacy, some organs and blubber as medicine, and bones for mystic purposes.
-During the hunting season (Late spring, early summer) the city reeks of blood and carcass of slaughtered whales.
