Zlatlan is a temple-city of the Lizardmen, located in the Southlands. It is said to have been founded before the Old Ones separated the Southlands from Lustria, forming the World Pond.[2]

Zlatan would be unknown outside of the Lizardmen's world, were it not for the Arabyan merchant and scholar Ibn Jellaba, who discovered the city in 1150 IC, or the Cathayan captain Yin-Tuan, who narrowly avoided sacrifice in Zlatlan in 1690 IC, following Dragon Emperor Wu's failed invasion of the Southlands.[1a][1c] The Dwarfs of Karak Zorn may have made contact with the Lizardmen of Zlatlan, but if they did it was not recorded in any of the known Dwarf sagas.[1a]

Although the Slann of Zlatlan are cut off from their Lustrian counterparts, due to the isolation of the temple-city the plaque sequence of Zlatlan is almost, if not completely, intact. One result of this is that the Slann of Zlatlan knew of the Prophecy of Sotek long before the Lustrian Slann. When the Skaven of Clan Pestilens washed up on the shores of the Southlands Sotek is said to have encircled Zlatlan to protect it from their plagues. It is believed by the Mage-Priests that the Serpent God then drove the ratmen insane so they turned upon their own kind. The Cult of Sotek arose in Zlatlan, and it is said that one hundred Skaven are sacrificed in the city every day.[1b]
