Seven Cities detail

Seven Cities

The Pan'potsun Odhan, or waste, was an area west of the holy city of Karashimesh, east of Raraku and north of the Ubaryd Odhan, on the sub-continent of Seven Cities.

It was "a sparsely populated wasteland of dessicated hills, the skeletal ruins of long-dead cities, poisonous snakes, [and] biting flies."[1] But evidence of a rich and thriving long-dead civilization were everywhere. Numerous tels, flat-topped hills built of layers upon layers of cities, could be found throughout the desert. These and other ruins usually showed signs of a violent end.[2]

Natives of the Pan'potsun Odhan were the Arak.[3]

Trivia[]

When asked by a fan whether the name "Pan'potsun" was meant to invoke "pots and pans", author Steven Erikson said the name was actually "a riff on an archaeological site".[4]
