Prince of Nothing

Sakarpus is a city of the Ancient North located in the heart of the Istyuli Plains, and, aside from Atrithau, the only city to survive the Old Wars.[1][2]

Last part of The Sagas is “The Annal Sakarpa,” or “The Refugee’s Song” as it is sometimes called, the strange account of the city of Sakarpus during the Apocalypse.[3]

Sakarpus had been beseiged five times since the time of the No-God,[4] but never succumbed, not until the Men of the Great Ordeal, under Anasûrimbor Kellhus’s command, conquered the city in 4132.[5]
