Lore

Kimir's walls and battlements are made of fine stone, hewn and laid by Kimir's progenitors, as Kimirians are skilled sculptors and miners. The cities quarries were manned for generations by its able-bodied men and women, everyone who can drive a pick took shifts mining stone. This produced tall and strong individuals which were impressive even for Noxian standards.

  • The Longhall: Kimir's founders had raised its longhall many generations ago, not far from the quarry whose stone laid its foundation.
  • The Quarries: Kimir's oldest quarry was unequaled in the north. It was nestled between a trio of high foothills, the inverted ziggurat slowing biting into their height.

Soapstone, alabaster, clay, limestone, slate and granite can be found in these quarries.
