The Under-Tyr

Tyr has been racked by conflagration, famine, sandstorm, pestilence, war and the wrath of the Dragon. Each time the city-state suffered a tragedy, Kalak ordered it rebuilt. More than two thousand years of such activity means that several layers of ancient ruins lie beneath Tyr, with entrances ot Under-Tyr scattered throughout the city.

The Sorrows: A rubble-filled maze of confusing chambers.
Elven River: A network of smooth tunnels that reach deep into subterranean Athas.
Belly of the Noble: A complex series of interconnected cellars and broken vualts beneath the nobles district.
Tembo’s Teeth: A natural subterranean cavern and associated cave complex.
The New Crypts: The newest addition to Under-Tyr are the crypts where both many of the rich and poor were buried in mass. Some were meant to be filled with sand once the crypt was entirely filled. These are all relatively self contained and nearest to the top layer of Under-Tyr.
The Crawl: The crushed remains of trade districts of earlier eras. In many places, the roof is only 3 to 5 feet high.
Road of Crypts: Tombs of long-dead nobles fill this multileveled, branching catacomb. The New Crypts make a connection into these at the top level.
Night Dragon Way: This mysterious road once plunged to deeper places, but the far end collapsed in a rockfall centuries ago.
