the known world
The Depths is the generic name for everything that lies beneath the city’s main plateau, except for Cliffside and the Cogs far below. Sewer networks fill the upper portion of the
Depths before giving way to the ancient ruins and forgotten levels of earlier ages. The upper wards of Sharn use an ingeniously devised networks of chutes to funnel waste down into the sewers. Garbage and filth is channeled into cavernous midden chambers where it is left to rot or be devoured by the vermin and oozes that inhabit the sewers.
When Sharn was rebuilt from earlier ruins nearly a thousand years ago, the entrances to those ruins fell into obscurity. Today, this area of the city offers a vast series of Dungeons ripe for exploration and adventure. Its passages and shafts are neglected and many have collapsed over the centuries, but wonders and horrors still roam these vaults, keeping watch over the treasures of earlier ages.
