The Gnomish city within Vandril. The source of all steam technoligy in Thanatops. Svidnivel has experienced a recent renaissance under the science regime of the Dragon kings. The most influential creation has been the Warforged. The gnomes set out to create a spark of life and a mechanical soul. They met mixed success, as the Warforged are sentient and intelligent but unaffected by magics of the soul, being unable to be resurrected if destroyed. The warforged are considered a failed experiment in the pursuit of artificial life, but they are used extensively to power factories, draw bridges, and horseless carriages. They are considered to be the greatest product of the steam age.
