Atlantis used to be the pride of humankind, the largest and most glorious of all city, housing almost half a million humans and other creatures of the land. The city sat upon an island in the middle of the Ägais and thus should have been under Poseidons rule, but the citizen grew proud, still remembering the golden age of men under the rule of the Titans and dismissing the new gods. This drew the wrath of those new gods and Zeus let thunder and lightning rain down on the city while Poseidon shook the earth and let his creature draw the island down to the bottom of the sea, drowning every living creature on there. Centuries passed while this city turned to legend among the land creatures and slowly Tritons and other creatures of the sea populated the ruins of the city and repopulated it to it´s current glory, mostly undetected by every living thing above the surface.
The city is mostly kept in the tones of the ocean to blend into it´s surroundings. The Atlantenteans mostly used the structures that were already there and fixed them up or added to them.
