In Ultima Online
, the city of Umbra
is one of the two cities of Malas
, located on the southern continent.
Like all of Malas, its two cities are opposite extremes. Umbra is a city of darkness and evil, a bastion of the necromancers of Malas. The structure of the city is chaotic and it always looks to be in a state of decay, although the necromancers prefer it this way and it doesn't hinder shops from operating. Interestingly, they have managed to create a moat that has broken through to the very base of the continent, thus being filled with the void.
Fast transportation is possible thanks to a moongate in the city. A little to the northeast lies the Coliseum.
Known as the "City of Necromancers," Umbra is of a darker and less orderly construction than its sister-city Luna and is located on the opposite corner of the map. Dark grey stone walls make up the majority of the buildings, though the occasional accent of blood-red adds a sinister touch to the already foreboding atmosphere of the city - a perfect backdrop for the experienced, or even the aspiring, practitioner of the dark arts. Merchant shops are scattered randomly within the city and are connected by a series of cobblestone paths. A star-filled void forms a moat around the city, and in many places the embankment has been piled high with skulls - perhaps they are the remains of unlucky adventurers or would-be necromancers who failed in their attempt to harness the power of death magic.
- The entrance the the Bedlam dungeon is found in the healer shop of the city.
