Kinship
version two: the first lock

Civilization

Places to Go:

  • Sylveris, Capitol of The Prosperous Middles + Ognos
    A bustling walled city located near the center of the Middles, it is a diverse place with many residents and visitors from all over Ognos. Broken up into several sub-districts with poorer folk in the outer edge districts and wealthier nobles in districts nearest to the imperial palace.
  • Cinderpeak, Capitol of The Burning North
    A huge fortress city not far from the border between the North and the Middles. Ruled over with an iron fist by the Amosi duchy, it boasts one of the largest and most well-trained local militias in all of Ognos. With very little reported crime, it is considered one of the safest places in the country - and also one of the biggest threat to the imperial throne, if they were ever so inclined.
  • Treespire, Capitol of the Miry West
    Built into a grove of massive ancient trees rooted in a thriving blue-green lake below, this expansive city is entirely arboreal. Well-known for it's warm relationship with local Clans, it is extremely welcoming and tolerant towards people of all races. It has a calm, laid-back vibe (locals don't seem to know the meaning of words like 'hurry') and offers a variety of luxuries such as spring-fed baths, rare Valka trade commodities, and sweet, crispy Spire Cakes. It's no surprise Treespire is a hot spot for tourists and adventurers alike!
  • Elevus, Capitol of the Craggy East
    A hardy, maze-like city built into the side of the highest mountain in Ognos. Sometimes called 'The Last Stop', they are the last human city before the top of the mountain - few adventurers return after leaving their walls to explorer higher elevations. Elevus is best known for its superior tailors, who produce some of the most innovative designs and materials in all of Ognos, and its variety of breweries, many of which specialize in enchanted alcoholic drinks.
  • Frozenheim, Capitol of the Frozen South
    Located at the furthest point in the South, Frozenheim does not see the sun for nine months of the year and is best known for their unique innovations such as vitamin-enhanced lighting and the geothermal heating that keeps the city pleasantly warm most of the time. This bustling port always carries a faint edge of danger - probably because of the pirates, thieves, and outlaws who call it home and the fact that most things are legal here (even murder) - but has a surprisingly low crime rate. Locals look out for their own and mete out quick, ruthless justice against those who seek to cause harm; but, as long as you don't cause trouble for them, you can evade punishment for crimes committed in other territories.
  • Walled Cities & Towns found in all territories
  • Settlements & Villages without walls, found in all territories

    Caravan Chaos
    Requested By: NPC Traders (All Major Cities)
    The caravans that keep Ognos alive - bringing important trade goods and other vital supplies to the furthest reaches of the country - are experiencing a troubling problem: goods are going missing left and right, but they're all minor, miscellaneous items. These strange thieves leave behind bars of gold, but make off with bird figurines and trinkets. Sounds like a problem for the Guardians that monitor the trade routes, right? Wrong! These thefts aren't happening out in The Wilds, but right here in our very own cities. Who will help us put a stop to these strange incidents?
