Esthelm is a human city located in Izril.
At night Esthelm was attacked and burned by the Goblin Lord's raiding party, but before the could kill everyone, Rags and her tribe intervened and killed them. Than she ordered her tribe to loot and gather what she wanted and let the fleeing Humans go untouched and kill anyone who resisted.
What remained of the destroyed city, was rubble, broken buildings, a maze of fallen masonry and tunnels of homes where the dead lay buried in the darkness. The many who survived soon realized the true horror of what the Goblins had done. As the goblins had taken goods, plundered valuables and stolen away the food. Now, in the remains of their city, over half of the remaining desperate population began to tear each other apart, fighting and killing over what scraps of food they could find.
After it's destruction, Esthelm always seemed dark. The bands of refugees and thugs who’d established themselves on the outside of the city had light, but it only served to enshroud the center of the city in more darkness. The broken buildings and slanted walls created a labyrinth into which sound and light seemed to vanish. The sewers had broken in places, in others, the flame had sent buildings tumbling into obscene heaps of death. Only the brave and truly desperate would go searching in these places, even among Esthelm’s survivors. Because even if they did not see anything, they knew dark things lurked in these places.
One of these dark things, is a young [Florist] woman who in order not to starve to dead, ate a burned corpse, damning herself and losing her humanity, becoming a monster with an insensible hunger.
A week after, all the dead started rising, climbed out of the sewers and digging themselves out of the ground.
- The road that goes to Liscor, is located near Esthelm.
- After it's destruction, some bands of men reveled in their own twisted freedom to do as they pleased, grabbing young women and fight each other.
