Nagisa is a ruined city on the eastern part of the Bdonge River in the Mwangi Expanse. It is also known as the White City, as its buildings—a number of terraced pyramids, surrounded by smaller structures—are built entirely from white stone.
There is evidence that Nagisa was an elven city, the only such known in the Expanse. There are a pair of statues of what appear to be elven warriors at the western gate, and the city's stones are covered in elven script. The script is a vast and rambling epic poem, telling of how a group of elves were separated from their kin and charged with protecting the world from an ancient evil—although one interpretation of the text is that the evil actually existed within those elves.
More recently, a group of treasure hunters from Cheliax mounted three expeditions into the ruins. On the first two occasions they suffered heavy losses, which they attributed to widespread traps and bloodthirsty fey, but emerged with an impressive haul of treasure. They never returned from their third visit to the city.
Evil fey and traps discourage most adventurers exploring the ruins of the enigmatic White City. The Alijae tribe of wild elves also works to protect the ruins from outside explorers. Nevertheless, every year groups of adventurers set out to investigate Nagisa, including elven archaeologists seeking secrets of their race who once built the ancient city.
