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?

I'll rise to the challenge.

When I introduced the sea titans to Midgard, they were my nod to Gene Wolfe. I never knew Monte Cooke was also a Gene Wolfe fan.

They have little direct connection to Nethys, but they concede that his domain mostly aligns with their own. Their issue is gravity, which works against them. If they drown the world, that problem is fixed—and it gets rid of competing interests, like the Dragons, as Ben mentioned.

What if we had a renegade titan.. who contacts the surface of the southlands from an underground sea (ala the Darklands).

He doesn't see the campaign for rising the oceans going anywhere any time soon. He creates minions but sets them to a different conspiracy. How to reacquire the means to achieve great size while not being smeared by gravity.

They're trying to create kaiju.. and if they succeed, he'll be able to walk the lands once more, as a living god!

So you have strange new creatures abroad on the land. Conspiracy and secret powers. A little Underworld connection.. and a sinister plot that eventually includes giant monsters.

Which we can do with the new kaiju template appearing in B4 which is shipping when? Today and Tomorrow?
