Concept art

The Ascalon City Ruins are the former human city located near the center of Ascalon along the Great Northern Wall. Once a major city of Ascalon, following the Searing the city was left in ruins but remained a bastion for the ongoing struggle against the first charr invasion. As time passed the Ascalon resistance dwindled in number due to deaths, desertions, and the exodus to Kryta.

Twenty years after the Searing, King Adelbern and his remaining forces, unable to hold Rin, staged a final defense at Ascalon City as their last resort. Cut off from the Ebon Vanguard, with most of his men dead or dying, Adelbern committed one last act of defiance and called upon the powers of his sword, Magdaer to bring about the Foefire and drive the charr back.

Ascalon City is now a ghost town, filled with the spirits of its guard. The ghosts continue to watch over the ruins but make no attempt to communicate with living humans. They are nothing more than echoes of the soldiers who died there centuries ago. Legend says that if one of the twin swords of the royal family is returned to the city by the rightful heir of the throne that the spirits will finally be laid to rest.
