Tales From My D&D Campaign Wiki

Kuraj was a village of treasure-seekers in the Urruk desert. Its inhabitants combed the sands for artifacts, especially those from the Shatterwar. It was destroyed by orcs approximately 20-40 years ago (when Zaheer was a child).

Nowadays, Kuraj is simply a burned out ruin in the desert, occasionally used as a landmark by other archeologists but never resettled.
