The Shattered City is a swirling, chaotic maelstrom of islets. Each a rich source of salvage
for the Sundered Skies, each has a fragment of a once vast metropolis upon it. Exploration
of the Shattered City is not without risk, for the ruins are haunted by beasts and spirits, as
well as the ever present Pirate Lords, and Bright Cabal. This supplement expands upon
information found in Sundered Skies.
The Shattered City has no defined geography to speak of, it is a swirling “asteroid belt”,
each being made up of a ruin from a vast ancient metropolis. Several millennia of movement
has caused there to be no rhyme or reason to the Shattered City. Just because you
find yourself in the ruins of a residential district on one island does not mean that all the
ruins in the surrounding area are similarly residential. You are just as likely to find ruins of
barracks, temples, or even a royal palace on a neighboring island, as you are nondescript
homes or businesses.
The islands of the Shattered City are of all sizes, and all show signs of repeated collision
with one another. Indeed, the void between the islands is often filled with grit, like that
of a sand storm, and experienced scavengers wear goggles and cover their mouths. The
unique nature of the Shattered City sometimes channels the winds of the skies into savage
sandstorms with the power to damage ships, and flense skin from bone.
