Eshunna was one of the great cities of the Lantic Empire.[1a]

Centuries later the city is reborn as a City of Sigmar.[2]

Geography

The city of Eshunna is connected to Uliashtai via the Old Lantic Road, a road that cuts through the Iron Desert. The Rustwood lays between the two cities, though travel between them is considered dangerous due to the Grots and spiders living within.[2]
