Deep beneath the Fangwood of Nirmathas, buried by a maze of tunnels and miles of impenetrable rock, lies Zirnakaynin. A marvel of construction and tenacity, the city proper occupies three massive caverns layered one over another, but its holdings include countless grottos, lightless tunnels, and black-bladed fortresses throughout the nearby Darklands. Within the city’s three central caverns—Cocyrdavarin, Eirdrisseir, and Rygirnan—live the city’s drow population, nobles and commoners alike, all vying for power and influence in a city built on treachery and pain.
