Once a promising city in development built between the fortresses of two lords, united through victory by a great general memorialized with a massive statue just outside the village walls, a terrible plague eradicated the population of this place whose name is now forgotten. The buildings, left to the elements, have begun to crumble. Only the mausoleums and cemetery remain largely intact, though they too are overgrown.
The Field of Ruins is designed to provide players a feeling of being vulnerable for many of the areas, while providing specific sections of the map where line of site is heavily broken that comprise the bulk of the path between the two relic rooms. As the only map with a single major elevation at all points (though it does shift depending on where you are), the map promises to have more frequent conflict in larger numbers than average.
