Xin was the capital of Thassilon during the reign of its namesake, Emperor Xin.[1]

Geography

Xin was located in southwestern Thassilon, bordering Bakrakhan. Since Earthfall, it has lain on the ocean floor, some 100 miles from Magnimar. Its skyline is dominated by the Crystal Palace, Xin's home.[2][3][4]

History

Xin served as Thassilon's capital during the reign of its founder, Emperor Xin. After Xin's death, the city was allowed to fall into ruin; Xin-Cyrusian, capital of Cyrusian, replaced it as Thassilon's de facto capital. Xin, haunted by the First King's ghost, became a forbidden place until Earthfall sank it into the Varisian Gulf. In modern times, Xin is barely known even among the most learned Thassilonian scholars.[1][5][6]
