The Dry Veins
Once part of Wati’s busy harbor district, most of the canals in this section of the necropolis have been drained and bricked over, creating a network of crypts for the poor and unknown. Artistically inclined clerics of Pharasma make room for new bodies by stacking the desiccated bones into creative sculptures and decorations, giving the catacombs an unsettling charm. The dark labyrinth also provides travel and cover for grave robbers and smugglers, who brick up sections of the tunnels to form hidden storage caches, secret drop points, or even safe houses. Although the Dry Veins are largely safe, strange creatures like chokers, gricks, and giant vermin skitter through the oldest crypts and nest in forgotten corners, and more than a few criminals using the tunnels have met grisly ends before they were able to reclaim their hidden treasures.
