"Though the buildings have fallen and the cathedrals are a shambles, the people here live on in the shadow of what once was."
Ascalon City is where we are first thrown as Prophecies characters. It's a small but beautiful city and I couldn't help but to think that there was more to see than what we were given in the game. Most of the quests in pre-searing are given out at this location. While it may be the main city in pre-searing, post searing it is nothing more than a tiny spot on the map. The small city gives way to searing crystals and the land around us opens up for further exploration.
