Jhothûn was once an impressive city full of towers of crystal.
The royal palace of the Emperors was the only building to last into the fourteenth century DR. Within the palace, which was guarded by the last Prince of Jhothûn, were three portals, one to each of the three seats of the satrapies of the empire—Karffbadh, Choshein, and Gharreil. For a great multitude of centuries after the fall of the empire, the qorrash princes recruited guardians for the magical portals to protect the history and treasures remaining within the palace and hoping for the return of a royal descendant to restore the empire.
The palace was filled with great riches and artifacts of both history and magic—mostly giant-sized ones that did not resize to fit smaller users.
- ↑ It is suspected that Jhothûn was itself a part of the empire of Ostoria, but this is never directly stated.
The maps of the royal palace of Jhothûn, shown above, were originally released on between April 5th and April 26th, 2001, as general-purpose palace maps for the "Map-A-Week" feature on the Wizards of the Coast website.
