What is Ptolus?

A cosmopolitan city where humans, elves, and dwarves rub elbows with orcs, ratmen, and stranger creatures. A city built upon the ruins of two previous settlements, creating a mazelike undercity full of dangerous (but lucrative) chambers just waiting to be discovered. A frontier port ruled by a power-mad theocracy amid the decay of a collapsing Empire. A place where crime families war openly and noble houses battle discreetly—with equally deadly results. A city where magic is familiar, adventurers are welcome, and thousands of residents dwell beneath the shadow of a Spire crowned with a citadel of evil so strong that the very earth thrust it away from itself untold ages ago.
