The 29th J÷r­gar­ (TM) Map-of-the-Week release shows shows us the lair of the dark draug Mumnir in the ruins of the AustamŠra town of Hag÷r­ in the remains of the fallen Ăsir Empire. (The ruins of Hag÷r­ were featured in last week's map.) As in the locations where the other dark draugs dwell, Hag÷r­ is a lifeless village. Its trees are dead and only the brown waste of old plants and grasses cover the ground. Many buildings are ruins. When Mumnir came to the ghost town that had been Hag÷r­, only hollow shells remained of the three structures. Large holes were in the roofs, with the broken slate tiles scattered in the dying weeds that had grown in what had been the floors beneath the gaping openings they once covered. Mumnir ordered his orcs to cannibalize still intact lumber, lattices and clay roof tiles from other ruins and to restore the castle and the administrative building with them. He had no source of new construction materials. The coach house and stable building was of no use to the dark draug or his orcs. It remained untouched, allowed to continue to slowly crumble, like the rest of Hag÷r­.
