Wards were erected, spells were cast, and the former Ghazni Quarter of the Old City was declared the Ghost Quarter, a place for restless spirits to ply their cursed existences far from the eyes of the living. Whether the architects intended this as a final insult to the Ghazni they had slaughtered during the quarter’s scourging and destruction none can say, but it seems likely.

Nearly one hundred years later, researchers at the Underversity successfully developed spells that enables them for the first time to observe and identify restless spirits with certainty. The last major test was to be the Ghost Quarter.

It was never completed. To this day, the spells remain under lock and key in the Reliquary Library of the Underversity, viewable and usable by no one.
