Xanalph is a bit like the story about Atalanta, as it is also a city that cannot be found. The difference is that Atalanta was supposedly destroyed by the maelstrom in the Stormsea while Xanalph was buried under the ever moving sands of Karra.Xanalph is a place of legend. There are those who think it to be a myth, there are those who think it exists and there are those who know the truth.
Purpose / Function
Xanalph consists of three seamless, concentric, sandstone walls, each slightly higher the further in they are located until the central tower is reached. The walls and space between the walls is large enough to be considered comfortable. Entry and exit is only possible through solid metal doors. These door are engraved with fading pictograms and text of times past, telling stories and serving as functional historical monuments.
The central tower itself is dark stone that had been carved out of a massive rock instead of built, with the higher parts completed with the same sandstone as the walls.
