  • No unread posts Sirothelle
    Sirothelle rests near the Heart of the World, one of the largest active volcano known in Idalos. Within the walls of this city resides the Aukarians, a race known for its treachery and murderous intent. Stone is a main component in the construction of most of the buildings in this city as the Aukari have a habit of burning down towns with their fire. Almost everything is made of stone, even their house, room, and beds. Most travelers do not come here, whether out of fear, hatred, or both. If an adventurer had the courage to step foot within Sirothelle, they can expect not to be greeted kindly, if at all.

    A once prosperous, thriving city now sits the ruins of its glory in cold, arctic ice. This is not a place for the living, as the climate of Valaris is deadly, especially during Cylus. However, those who choose to venture into the ruins may find more than just treasures.

    The stronghold of education and learning, this fortress, in one of the coldest areas of Idalos, houses many who seek to enhance their knowledge and expertise in any number of disciplines. Unknown to most, however, below the public areas of the city, suffering for the sake of science is common. All are welcomed, though some who arrive are not treated as they might expect.

    Founded on the shores of a desert oasis, this city prefers to take no part in the wars around unless directly attacked. Believing firmly in doing nothing if nothing can be gained in return, the city has strict control of the oasis, which is the only major source of water in The Hotlands, not allowing any travellers or visitors to get water from it without paying a strict tax. Merchants will be welcomed, but travellers will have a hard time in this city.

    A politically neutral mercenary city on the coast of Eastern Idalos, Yaralon is famous for hiring out it's various mercenary companies to anyone with sufficient funds to afford their services. At times, the mercenary companies of Yaralon have fought for and against just about every political entity in Yaralon, themselves included. Due to its mercenary nature, Yaralon is one of the few places where the followers of the war Immortals, such as Ethelynda, Raskalarn, and even Valtharn, can come together in something resembling peace.

  • Ehtrusan
    History states that this civilization was destroyed by Nashaki but in fact the citizens fled underground and in the arcs which followed they have built a sprawling city underground. This monarchy has grown and the Royal Family rule with an iron fist. There are strict rules of class, caste and conduct and justice is swift and brutal. Ehtrusan is a city with a lot of wealth and potential but also extremes of poverty and deep corruption. Factions vie for power among the poorest while the guilds extort protection from all.

    Rising from the shore of a jungle peninsula, and backed by a high plateau, the citizens of this 'City of Slaves' live beneath the wings of the powerful and arrogant Avriel. Combining cunning, a smoothly running culture and feigned humility, the human population may yet lull their overseers into a complacency sufficient to allow a crippling uprising.

    Rising from the stony plateau overlooking the rivers and plains of the western continent, and growing wealthy from the gem stones pulled from this same rocky soil, Etzos is a bastion of independence, eagerly spreading its belief that man should rule Idalos, not be servants of the vain Immortals who nearly destroyed it. But can the different factions set aside their agendas long enough to see this through?

In this dank jungle city, poisons and their antidotes are akin to spices, and unwary travelers are often used as unwitting test subjects. But for those with the wit to learn, this city can provide surprising opportunities and rewards.

    This is a city located on the coast of western Idalos and stands as a pillar of light against the dark cliff faces surrounding it. Ne'haer is considered a port city for ships as well as the last stop for most seafarers adventuring to locate the Iulure Isles. For this, it is nicknamed "Death's Door". In contrast to its nickname, this city focuses mostly on religious values and rituals for the protection of the immortals watching over their city. Ne'haer is also a city booming with trade and nobility, as well as jobs and plenty of opportunities to advance in skills and crafts.

  • No unread posts Uthaldria
    Uthaldria, greatly isolated from the cities and cultures of the rest of the world, exists as a pillar against the vast and horrific hordes of beasts that dwell in the region of Gauthrel. This quickly developing city began as a walled fortification against the monsters beyond the gates, but since then has quickly evolved into an agricultural, military, and entertainment capital in Western Idalos. If Uthaldria is known for anything, it is the visceral nature that permeates every day of every citizen's life - not a city for the faint.

Many creatures inhabit the isles, some that are considered legends. If an adventurer is able to make it to the city in the clouds, they will find it is a bustling place of companionship, trade, and politics.
