Name: Elvquelin
Location: sathmore-empire Outer Midlands
Capital of the sathmore-empire.
Population: 75,000 - 100,000?

Working description: It is grand, pretentious and old. The streets laid out to some pattern - perhaps arcs centered on the harbor. Or circles centered on the palace. Or both. It must have a large palace complex, a temple area (a large one) and an area for the Arenul Ceen. Also other buildings and the like for all the departments and groups a large government would attract.

Defenses: A large and elaborate city wall. Actually 2 lines of walls one behind the other with a nice, wide, deep moat.


  • Cordatrann - Temple district
  • Enedh Uin Ardhon - Palace district
  • A district for the upper level of nobility
  • All cities (in stories and RPG's at least) have a run-down crime ridden area. Usually down by the docks.
  • A market district with several markets.
  • Grand Bazaar: It is a huge, multistory covered market said to be home to over 3,000 shops. A grand structure of granite and marble over two hundred years old. Believed to be one of the largest on the planet.
  • Lots of monuments and statues commemorating past glories

Politics: Is there a town hall (or some elaborate sounding name) or is it all run from the palace?

  • Osto Nolme HQ of the arenul-ceen - near the palace. The name means Fortress of Knowledge. Located in Enedh Uin Ardhon (Palace district) close to (literally on the opposite side of the street) the palace itself. It is not so much one building as a large, rambling collection of interconnected buildings occupying several blocks. It is known to contain a School, countless laboratories, 6 libraries, 3 dining halls, dormitories and private quarters/apartments for members. The exact age of this complex is uncertain but it's known to have started as a virtut-secturum Way Station. The object of numerous archaeological excavations and surveys over the centuries - these will show the site has a very long history. The earliest remains will be dated to -6,000 CR.
