|This article is about the original gnomish city. You may be looking for Ravagog, the present-day ogre city.|
Serenvale used to be the city of the gnomes before the ogres drove them out. The gnomes went to the Lost Cities for protection from the ogres. The ogres polluted the water with their special enzymes, removed all plants, put up barriers, and renamed it Ravagog. It was given to the ogres officially as part of the original elf-ogre treaty. They tore out all the Panakes, which had lined the river, used their bark to make drakostomes, and got rid of their flowers which holds the cure.
