Once a powerful kingdom of Men, Mechanon fell more than five hundred years ago during a period of internal strife. Mechanon’s ruins is located in a green valley in the midst of the Shield Mountains east of Free Joppa (the same valley as Great Lodge and Amber Mountain). The descendants of Mechanon either went east into the Rain Lands or settled in city of Loudwater. The Mechanoi apparently revered Tyranthraxis and made frequent war with their neighbors. Mechanon’s ruins are most noted for the massive structure known as the God’s Harp, a curious ruin believed to have something to do with channeling magical energy.
A ruined outpost on the eastern edge of the valley is now host to a large group of gnolls restoring a tunnel through the mountains connecting to the Rain Lands for unknown reasons.
