Cho'n Delor was a haunted ruin that laid along the east side of the great river between the First and Second Cataract. Two hundred years before the Black Company traveled south under the captaincy of Croaker, Cho'n Delor was the city of the Paingod. Across the river were the ruins of the Triplet Cities, which were destroyed along with Cho'n Delor and the Paingod at the end of the Pastel Wars.
Centuries later the ruined city was still haunted. No villages were built near the ruins and even animals kept away. Croaker was willing to explore Cho'n Delor during the day but would not risk staying overnight.
