Brainstorm: Lost Cities, Strange Treasures

I'm in the mood to brainstorm something. Tell me of the cities of the Southlands, Nuria-Natal, Nurambeki, Shebai, and Ishadia. Tell me of the ruins in the deserts and mountain highlands, the lost sites in the deep interior.

Let's brainstorm in an African, Arabian, Persian, or draconic style. What sort of lost city most appeals? What sort of ruins would you send your PCs to in Midgard? What treasures are hidden there?

This is a fast free association answer, straight from the gut.

Draconic.

Why not African? Frankly, lack of knowledge, awareness, and familiarity.

Why not Persian or Arabian? Even though there hasn't been anything done with these regions very recently, I have seen content from there recently enough. Legacy of Fire, Mummy's Mask coming out, and so on.

I don't think there has been a really strong draconic product lately. I know Paizo did some dragon books this year, and for some reason they didn't scratch the itch, they just inflamed it for me.

Or maybe I'm just trying to rationalize why I'd like to see some good old Dragon action.

Forget the dragons!

I'm always pro-dragons, though I agree that I haven't gotten super-excited about the last few attempts.

I haven't picked up Dragon's Demand, may need to try that one. I seem to remember the author from Way Back When.
