It is also a particular interest to scientist and archeological explorers who believe it might be an ancient dwarven city that predates the oldest cities in the realm.

Spanish Coastal – Ingot’s architecture reflects a coastal Spanish settlement one would see in the Caribbean during the 1800’s. Lots of pastel colors near the sea and more populated areas of the village. As the city tapers to the mines, the pastel colors are replaced with precious ores/gems that ornately decorate the more industrious buildings required by the mining practice.
