The Ruins of Ur’vine

Lost for many years, the city of Ur’vine was once thought to be mythical. There are untold ancient tombs, crypts, temples, homes, and sacrificial office parks that have long since been claimed by jungle.

On a recent excursion with my trusty jungle trekking dog, J.D., seen here,

we came across this stairway. I believe it was once used for dark rituals of the sort not spoken of in polite company. Even today, the stench of copy machine toner is strong. Now, it is almost completely hidden by the lush rainforest undergrowth.

Sadly, there was no time to explore further. As it is well known that Ur’vine is full of poison dart traps and giant rolling stone balls, I will not explore this ancient site further until I have my bullwhip and fedora handy.
