Sa'avi

This page is under construction.

  The most recent of the ancient discoveries, the Sa'avi were an advanced civilization- perhaps the most advanced as of yet discovered; they built towering spires and gleaming cities fueled by arcane technology, and made great strides in magical experimentation. Despite their advanced nature, however, they appear to have remained strictly isolated to the continent of Tolara. Unfortunately, they met a grim fate during an event known only as The Cataclysm around the year 3319- the exact specifics of which still remain a mystery to Tolaran Archivists.  
After returning to Eris'ka I was filled with restless energy... I knew I'd only just barley scratched the surface of the ruins; that even more spectacular treasures were out there just waiting to be found. I was eager to be off again and decided to return to the Southern Isles immediately.
