There's No Safe Place in The Empire
Notable Places in Altenfell
Anvil Mountains – The mountain range to the north of Altenfell and to the south of Anvil, serving as a border between those territories of the Empire.
Blackstone – The second larges city in Altenfell. Effectively the Teifling capitol. Populated by mostly Teiflings, most races can be found there, as with most large capitol cities. As the name suggests, it is carved out of the black stone of the Terrorcrown Mountains. The cult of Corellion holds much sway here, though there are temples to Erathis and Avandra, as well. The Teifling Duke Emnon Noble rules the city, as well as serving as the Teifling’s interim Counselor.
Brightmor – A fair sized town on the coast. The Human noble Peiter Frass is currently Duke. The inhabitants of Brightmore have shunned the gods for the most part, concerning themselves with the worldly, and so no cult holds much sway here. Populated by mostly Humans, a few Halflings and Elves.
The Cloaked Wood – A wooded area so names because the canopy is so thick the sun cannot penetrate.
[[“The Impassable”]] – The site of the epic final battle between the forces of Tharidzun and the forces of the Empire. The blood fell so thick that it tainted the land and those that attempt to cross the site are sapped of strength within hours.
Griffonheart – Capitol city of the Empire of Talonrule. Grand buildings of white stone. The cult of Bahamut holds much sway here, as he is the god that bestowed the Griffonheart bloodline the right to rule the Empire. A great number of all races live and do business here.
[[“The Murk”]] – The name given to a particularly harsh swamp near Griffonheart. Some believe it is home to an elder black dragon, but these rumors have never been substantiated. On most days, the fog is so thick it’s nearly impossible to see in front of you.
Southenport – A port city on the southernmost peninsula of Altenfell. Duchess Gwenn Colming rules here, but the cult of Avandra, who has a temple here, holds much sway as well. Humans and Halflings populate most of the city.
Tenpenny House – An Inn that has been abandonded and has sense been taken over by bandits.
Woodfall – A small town in the Cloaked Wood. Halflings and Elves mostly comprise its populace. No nobility exists here, as the Duchess of Southenport also rules here. A temple of Melora exists here and holds much sway.
