The Bloody Path to Apotheosis
Cormill was a wealthy city long ago, home to mining, trade, and a seedy element attracted to the wealth of the city. An earthquake tore the city apart more than a hundred years ago, and a large portion of the foothill above the city was brought down, burying the citizens, and their accumulated wealth.
Since then, many expeditions have been sent into what is left of the ruins to dredge up the remains. Portions of the city have taken up new residents in the form of monsters or evil humanoids. They have been cleared out and resettled many times, but there is still said to be treasures worth the risk.
