Together with the Silent City, the Living Tombs is all that remains of Ahket Aken, City of Life.


The ancient city of Ahket Aken pulled underground by the power of the gods still flows with the tainted undead, creating water that both blesses and curses the Sinking Sands.

The Living Tombs represent the main body of the city of Ahket Aken. The city is relatively intact, but it is threatened by a dome of sand. In fact, the majority of the buildings are partially or completely trapped within the surrounding sand. Only the main area is free enough to allow easy movement on the spillway streets.

The original inhabitants were completely submerged beneath the sand. Only when they arose in undeath were they able to begin to clear the area. Using their clawed hands, the smothered citizens of Ahket Aken removed the sand from the main streets and aqueducts, hoping to restore the flow of the fountain. While the flow of the fountain was restored in some places, many of the buildings in the city remain half-buried beneath huge banks of still-shifting sand. - (Source: Dungeons in the Desert)
