Although Oldtown does not evoke much nobility of itself, one can glimpse an era of majesty in the ruins of Basom. Despite the utter destruction, the damage does not obscure what was once a city of unparalleled splendor beyond what can be seen anywhere today.
It remains nestled at the foot of the mountains overlooking Redfenland County. Nobody goes there now, unless they must. It is known by few what doom befell the old capitol, but those who walk through the shattered barbican and return are loath to speak of what they saw in the profaned keep. The Doom of Old Basom is a subject of some dread to the historians who study it.
