Shussel is a small city on the Alamber Sea in Unther. In 1370 DR, in an event called "the Vanishing", a mysterious fog descended upon the city and overnight, ninety percent of the city's inhabitants vanished. They have not been heard from since. The sudden underpopulation and abundance of homes brought squatters and bandits. The city is now under Mulhorandi control, with a heavy guard. The Mulhorandi use the port to bring in supplies for their war effort against Unther.
Shussel has its own supply of iron from nearby mines but the supply is known to be dwindling. The fields to the north of the city have been overfarmed and turned to sandy, poor conditions as a result.
