Of Swords & Crowns
Like most cities, Lucerta restricts graveyards to a specific location called the necropolis, which is fenced off. The district is a literal city of the dead, with ranks of graves or crypts laid out in “streets.” Plain dirt plots entomb the poor, while the rich and powerful rest in mausoleums or catacombs, often within private family plots. Such graves are set aside in restricted portions of the necropolis. The sounds of the city seem muted within the district, and the air smells earthy with a faint hint of decay. Carriages and wagons carry corpses and the bereaved to grave-sites.
