The halls of the Necropolis

The Necropolis[1] is a vast underground city located in the eastern jungles of Kehjistan. It is the headquarters of the Priests of Rathma,[2] and was founded early on in the priesthood's history, while Kalan was still alive.[3] The entrance to the city is built into the trunk of a large tree. Beyond the entrance runs a winding staircase that eventually leads into the city proper.[4]

In 1285, the city came under assault by the Reapers, resulting in the deaths of many of the priesthood.[1]
