Need to speak to a member of the Air Troops specifically?
From Tried's Mouth to the mysterious Tower, the waters around Scalvoris and the island itself hold a vast array of secrets, just ripe for discovery. Here are landmarks and small villages of note.

[Air Troop Command Post]
Perhaps the most remote Elements command post is that of Windward Haven. In the foothills of the Scalvoris mountains, bordering on the outskirts of Egilrun lies this structure. Indeed, the remote nature of this place is negated by access to some of the fastest mounts in Idalos. The Haven is a large structure, containing enough space for the command post itself and a sizable stable for visiting mounts. Consisting of three floors the building contains short-term barracks to house troops in need of rest along with offices for military personnel.
The architecture itself can be stunning when first laying eyes on it, with beautiful spire-like peaked roofs decorated with red clay tile and elegant iron inlaid windows. The foundation of the building is rooted firmly in the foothills of the Scalvoris mountains.
The office of the current Air Deputy, Thaddeous Crowe can be found here as well. While there is a small indoor training ring, the primary focus of the Air Troops is the use of winged mounts; as such there lies a massive circular outdoor training space. Within this stadium-like area there are several aerial obstacle courses set up on tall poles allowing troops to practice maneuvering with their mounts. The clear quiet mountain air is well suited to working with their winged beasts. Perhaps that is why the Haven is so far from the bustle of Scalvoris Town, to eliminate the chance of noisy distractions that might befuddle a curious Enormowl.
This command post is quieter than the others, as most communications come in by mounted Air Troop couriers rather than non-military messengers sent on foot. There is an ease to the soldiers stationed here, as their seclusion is rarely intruded upon.
