Let these ruins serve as a warning to all who would defy the Bleak Ones! Within these dark depths are the crumbling remnants of Old Lemuria, a once-majestic empire which sank to the bottom of the sea after its blasphemous Priest-King, Faltrah Lem, led the people of Lemuria to ruin. Lem ensured the doom of Lemuria by convincing his subjects to embrace new deities and reject the dark gods known as the Bleak Ones. Shortly after, Lemuria fired its Mandragalore doomsday device for the first --and only-- time. The Bleak Ones bid the weapon backfire, and the Old Lemuria paid the ultimate price. It has sat in silence for tens of thousands of years since, a reminder to all of the terrible power of the True Gods of the Deep.
