Soldiers of Misfortune
“The City of Night” stands in the shadow of the Ashen Spires, cloaked in mist from the Karrn Falls. For all but a few hours each day, Atur lies shrouded in gloom, a nearly perpetual twilight that gives the city its moniker. Oddly, during the day’s brightest times, the city is quiet, seemingly deserted. Only at night does Atur come fully to life.
This atmosphere suits the people. At night, they frolic in fest halls and taverns, sampling the forbidden delights of Atur’s infamous bordellos. Even King Kaius III is not immune to the city’s allure, and he finds refuge in Nighthold, a royal complex where he sometimes holds court.
Beneath the hustle and bustle of this curious community lie the Vaults of the Dead, where Karrnath’s undead legions await the day when war rages anew. Overlooking the city is the huge Crimson Monastery, one of the greatest bastions of the Blood of Vol in the nation.
