Legend talks of a City of Jade hidden in the jungle. It is probably more likely a myth than a real lost city, as no one has ever returned from questing for this fabled locale, though many in Mithgar have tried. From official release/information:
From publicity material: In the world of Mithgar, there is a mysterious jungle hiding a lost city that is carved of precious jade. Now Aravan, captain of the Elven ship Eroean, is determined to find the treasured lost city. With his true love Aylis, the Magekind Seeress, behind him and a crew of men and dwarves, he sets sail to follow the lure of legend. But the journey will be long and fraught with danger, where some among them will find dark sorcery and some will find death.
