The northernmost city in Tysa is also the kingdom's oldest. The thriving, heavily-fortified seaport was long ago built over the ruins of an ancient city, of which only very little is known.
The seaward face of Phak-Rur, which includes its grand harbour, is partially-shielded from the legendary wrath of the Sundren Sea by a long series of massive stone columns, nearly a mile from the coast, that rise up from the ocean floor and stretch high into the sky.
The broad, deep cove that serves as Phak-Rur's grand harbour, is nearly a mile in from the open sea. At its mouth, seventeen towering columns of stone rise up from the sea bed and soar into the sky, each reaching an almost impossible height of over six hundred feet. Countless vessels, including several Tysian warships, are anchored here.
After you encounter the pickpocket (EXPLORE the city of Phak-Rur), there is the option of renting a small craft for 20 gold tokens and sailing to the seventh of the The Stone Columns.
The Hall of Lords is an ancient and grand stone structure overlooking a wide quadrangle in Phak-Rur's eastern district. The lower level of the hall features a gallery containing nearly a hundred sculptures depicting the many prominent personages that have played a role in shaping the city's destiny over the many centuries since the seaport's founding.
Your journey takes you from Northeast Tysa, through Phak-Rur to The Hall of Lords
The ancient ruins beneath Phak-Rur are as perilous as they are mysterious. Only the very bold should dare to explore the crumbling streets and twisting passages of this long-forgotten domain of shadow...
The old man, well past the prime of his life, turns to face you, revealing broad shoulders and a thick, sturdy frame. A short sword hangs from his belt, and beneath the folds of his bulky brown tunic you can clearly make out an iron-studded leather jerkin. "I'm called Vark," he says, bowing. "I know well enough who you are and I pray you'll excuse me for coming straight to the point. I need your help to rescue my daughter..."
