Starfall - Beneath the Veil of Light
Ulol Mezthos is a Dwarven city-state consisting of The Last City itself and several square miles of surrounding farmland. Built on, around, and below a line of coastal cliffs, it was intended to be the final redoubt of a pre-Starfall Dwarven civilization whose name is unknown. Built the city as an ark for an entire civilization, Ulol Mezthos contains all the knowledge and magical resources they were able to place within it. However, due to an unforeseen side-effect of the Starfall, the city’s inhabitants lost all of their memories, including the ability to read and understand the extensive carvings throughout its interior—presumed to be stores of knowledge and instructions for survival. In addition, the fortress contains many powerful magical tools and artifacts whose purpose and operation are poorly understood by the present inhabitants.
Despite this catastrophe, Ulol Mezthos is still the greatest surviving Dwarven citadel of the pre-Starfall era. Three Dwarven generations have passed, and its people have made much progress in rebuilding their society. Giving the lie to it’s now-ironic name, The Last City has become a beacon of civilization in this new world. Due to its ideal geographic location and the industrial prowess of its people, the city has grown into a regional trade capital and naval power.
