The ruins of Kirkul City

One of the city states ports that make up the Five Sisters. The Five Sisters are made up of the only major ports in the north west of the Islands of Adventure.

Kirkul was once a large trading town (popn around 30,000) but was sacked twice. First by Ivinia Vikings in 796 and again by the forces of the Dark Circle in early 805. The town of Kirkul is currently abandoned. The remaining population still trade from the safety of off shore islands, and over 806 & 807, most of the refugees have re-settled in the other cities of the Five Sisters. Previous ruler was Emir Ahmed El-Kirkul (777-805) who died when the city was overrun in Early 805. Emir-ship has passed to his brother Sarem El-Kirkul (778-) who is presently residing in Saktekorum as a guest of the ruler there.
