Storasta was once one of the greatest cities of the Kellid nation of Sarkoris in northeastern Avistan. Founded in 3844 AR, it was finally abandoned in 4644 AR1 like the rest of the Worldwound. During its occupation, Storasta was overrun by demons until it was freed at the end of the Fifth Mendevian Crusade.23 Due to its complete corruption, however, the crusaders decided to raze the city rather than rebuild it.3

Appearance

Storasta was a river port located at the confluence of the Sarkora and West Sellen Rivers. The last city of old Sarkoris to fall after the eruption of the Worldwound, it degenerated into a spectacular ruin. The formerly sacred grove became a heap of rubble and tainted foliage.4

Prior to the Worldwound, Storasta was known for its groves and gardens, but during the time of the Worldwound, it was overrun by assassin vines, shambling mounds, and blighted arboreals. Its ruined walls were turned black by Abyssal fire and were covered with stinking moss and thorns.5

Inhabitants

After being razed, the ruins of Storasta are now largely abandoned except for the occasional demons who still haunt it.6

Historic notable inhabitants

During the time of the Worldwound, many demons avoided Storasta, although hezrous and their servant grindylows made the river dangerous.5 Plague steeds roamed the plains between Storasta and Undarin, spreading taint in their wake.7
