An enormous city created by the Cataclysm. It enjoyed prosperity under the Church and its Magic Academy, but an accidental magic surge in 995 turned it into a ghost town. Also referred to as the "Old World" due to its ruins and status as the origin of all magic.
The Cathedral City, alternatively known as the Imperial City and retroactively referred to as the Old World, is a great futuristic city that appeared on the Iberian peninsula in AD 856, and was turned into a ghost town in AD 995 by a catastrophic magical upheaval. It was said to have been the origin of all magic, possessing spells that were beyond its time. It was ruled by One the Intoner and served as the capital of Midgard during the Intoners' rule. It became the capital of the Empire later on. It is where the Cult of the Watchers was originally formed and where the first sealing ceremony was held.
