Lying forgotten in the Desert of Bones, the ruins of the spectacular ancient city Shadespire are brimming with untold riches and power, ripe for the taking. Though it is now a mere skeleton after being put to the torch by Nagash, the cities’ treasures remain, a morbid hint at the splendour that existed before Shadespire’s soul was torn away…
