Eberron - Dreams of Xen'drik
The city of Ghammas is one of the few permanent settlements in the Menechtarun Desert. Centered around a magical well, it was once a minor outpost of the ancient Giants, small enough to be ignored during their wars and millennia later occupied by dozens of races from across the wastes. As is typical of an oasis town, it is a major center of commerce and a nexus for news and information from all corners of the desert.
Since the fall of Montu Chezzak 1000 years ago, the city has been held by various powers. Currently, it is occupied by an alliance of humans, half-elves and dwarves who have held it against desert raiders and bandits for the last 47 years. Every few years, another tribe of raiders or gang of sand giants attempts to retake the city or plunder it’s treasures, but none have yet succeeded. The city’s defenders have one strong advantage – previous generations built a strong wall around the city, and each new faction that took the city repaired and reinforced the walls. After 1000 years, the walls are very thick and strong, and the city’s defenders are very skilled at repelling raiders from behind them.
