- The designated capitol of the united city states. Though it isn’t actually a capitol, all of the governments of every city state collaborate out of the city center of Quint. The city is renowned for its impeccable military and its unique draw for political endevours. The city itself is built onto an island that encompasses a large portion of the inland sea of the continent. Quint was also recorded as the first city to be visited by a Goddess, Quinn, for whom the city was named after.
The city is divided into 6 major districts.
-Central district contains the headquarters for the local police force, the Amber Knights, as well as all the housing and venues for the political powers that be.
-West Fields district contains the main portion of the cities military power. It encompasses 1/3 of the city and is the muster grounds and training fields for the city.
-Spires district is located on the south part of the city and is the smallest district. Despite that fact it contains the largest output of magic studies and magic items in the city. Besides being covered by 10-20 story tall building the district is otherwise bare.
-The Housing district is meant for the housing of a majourity of commoners. It is the only other part of the city besides central that has its own wall. It encompasses about ¼ of the city’s overall size. -Merchants district is located in the center of town and stretches east toward the main road. It is the focal point of city trade.
-The Warf is actually 2 districts governed in the same fashion on separate sides of the city. They are both trade point for boat trade and are also sources of fishing for the city.
The city’s personal government style replicates an Autocracy, therefore little is ever achieved for the lesser man.
Its military is broken down into 5 subsections. The military police (Amber Knights), the cavalry (Hussars), the general infantry( Imperitus Armatus), the Officers corp (Imperitus Sutorus), and the Dragon hunters ( Wind Slayers.)
Aelianas: Governor Militant of the city of Quint. She is a recognized War Hero and has received over three dozen medals for her service to the city. She his the leading military officer in the city and has secured the loyalty of the citizens and soldiers of the city
Cato: Daughter of Aelianas. She is far less skilled that her mother in almost every aspect, as a result she is often forgotten and over shadowed by her mother's successes. She is however an amazingly innovative individual. During a siege of a bandit fortress she used fire jelly, nd surrendered all the reserves of food to the bandits in exchange for a safe retreat. When they accepted she said that the reserves still needed to be cooked. late that night the camp exploded into flames and burned to the ground. He soldier, lying in wait, apprehended any survivors.
Calogerous: An ace archer from Quint. He grew up in a small 2 story shop and lived an unimpressive life until one day a city archer insulted his mother. He challenged the archer to a trial by skill in archery. The man got 2 bullseyes out of 3 shots. Calogerous got 5, splitting the first 2 arrows mid flight.
Felix: A Man obsessed with his muscles. This man is considered to be the strongest mortal in existence. He has lifted a boulder that weighed several tons and then tossed it 200 feet to crush an enemy.
Yinich: Yinich's origins are unknown. He was found one day floating on a piece of strange metal and was adopted by the city. No one understands the language he speaks, not even with magic, however he does seem to understand what people are telling him. His weapon of choice is a unique armless crossbow that can destroy buildings with a only a few shots.
The Aviarium: The Aviarium is a unique and beautiful dome in the Center of Quint. The dome is constructed of fire glass panes and metal reinforcing bars. The dome is a herding ground for all the City's Gryphons as well as the leading area for political discussions amongst city states.
The Golden Throne: A Small floating citadel that hovers over the city of Quint. It's structure resembles an octahedron and it's lower panels can open and close form an internal mechanism. The Golden Throne is the presiding place for all of Quint's politicians during a crisis. Its shell is made of a hard alloy similar to adamantine, but light. The alloy appears gold by color and thus the name was given. When fully operable The Golden Throne is also a weapon of mass destruction, capable of firing intense psychic energy at targeted areas.
Trahl is a city of hustle and bustle. The streets are always busy and full of wonderous inventions and trinkets for sale. The city of Trahl was the first city to employ the Sanctuary, the large walls that have kept the great beasts from ravaging the populace. It initial design was conceived by the leaders of the city of Darim and was perfected with a new liquid stone created by the Hassad family, the current leading class members for the city. This city focuses much of its time using its plentiful resources and well-defended placements to foster the intellectual culture that has brought many weapons to the field against the great beasts. The technological achievements of this city range from grand cannons to land ships to toaster ovens.
The city is divided into 3 separate sections all separated by a large river. Each division of the city is almost perfectly round with a second circular wall encircling a 15 mile diameter in the center of each district. For simplicities sake the leading bodies dubbed the sections as North Ward, South Ward, and Home Ward (in the center). There are also several small misshapen cities surrounding Trahl. These areas were built later to grab resources and farmland. Each section of the town has a road to another section and is built with air transportation stations, police HQs, and ports for ships.
The City’s government system is an Oligarchy ruled by the most intelligent families in the city. When and inventor creates something that impacts all of the City State in a majour way their family earn a permanent spot on the Trahl city council. Only 1 family member can fill the spot at a time. If a House dies out the family founder has a statue made for them and put into the grand hall in the Home Ward.
The city has no Standing army and a small police force, however they are the only city with gunpowder and they have an arsenal of several thousand golems on standby.
- The city of Locke is often referred to as the city of progress. Its focus on domestic production and advancements has shaped every other majour city state. Their achievements have ranged from saw mills, refineries, aqueducts, and sewers to the flying ship, medical casts, and the printing press. The city has no unkempt parts and is kept clean and repaired by enchanted tools. The city’s only noted organization pattern involves its public transportation and sanitation based buildings, otherwise it is quite impossible to find a specific district within which to take care of all ones needs.
The city of Locke only possesses 1 layer of Sanctuary and no standing military, however their sanctuary’s design resembles the walls of a fortress with towers and siege equipment to ensure such an impression is made. Their “military” is a standard 1 year term of enlistment and permanent membership of the reserve militia.
The city’s government is established as a Republic of voted officials that are elected for either 1, 2, or 3 years depending on seniority.
- Glyphrock is located at the Eastern base of the Igosis Mountain range. The city focuses on mining rocks from the mountainside. The rocks in this particular section of the mountain hold a unique property not found anywhere else on the continent. These stones bear the ability to absorb and store a single magic spell for up to 24 hours before breaking from the stress. The city has also used these stones to master many forms of magic and enchantment including those of the soul. Though the city is vast and contains a large amount of wealth only 10% of its population sees an annual income that allows personal belongings. Most of the city lives in poverty as the miners are not paid coin, but instead are given 3 square meals a day for them and their families as well as a small hut to call their home.
The city is led by a king and his 2 advisors that each have dominion over a portion of the city. The city also contains a strong noble class of individuals that fund most mining facilities in return for profits.
The city’s military is a large collaboration of mage guilds and will often make short work of most threats. The city is noted to hold the capitol for the assassins guild but this rumor is mere speculation.

She fought him and eventually got a strangle hold on his neck. an hour and a half later she had successfully suffocated the beast. Most people don't believe this tale because she constantly adds to it and changes facts, however no one can deny she has very nice wyvern leather armor.

- Darim the city of glamour. The people of this city are vast and hardy, because if you weren't hardy you could never build and without construction of some sort you would be without a job and you would perish. The city of Darim is a beautiful and unique site. Its walls are far more powerful and intimidating than any other city. The city is built into multiple layers, The ground layer is actually the 2nd story of the city and is built 10 metres up onto the wall. It is called the ground layer because it is the main layer of commerce and is the first layer that tradesmen pass through. This layer completely encompasses the walls length and stretches out about 1 mile before decending to the lower layer. The lower layer is a large collection of clusters of housing and small businesses. This layer goes underneath the ground layer as well as encompasses the vast majourity of the land within the walls. Because of this exponential growth the city has developed encroaching walls that slowly move and extend outward. Underneath the lower layer is the sub layer, where many of the cities academy's are held. Little is of note down in the unpopulated sub layer.
The city has no standing military and is instead protected by a small force deployed by Quint. The force can withstand far larger assault than it should be able to because of the unique structure of Darim's Sanctuary. The government is ruled by a king and his advisors. Unlike most monarchies his has been a strong and reliable family rule.
- Ahpest is by far the largest city. Despite its size it contains a very small population of people, but a very large population of livestock. The city specializes around breeding, butchering, and selling animals and their meat. Their range of animals is huge in comparison to any other city's livestock. The city breeds Brahman, Sheep, Goats, Fouls, Chickens, Lizard Beasts, Horses, Rhinos, Camels, and Dire wolves, Boars, and Lions. Currently only 10 Dire lions exist because of their harsh nature. 6 of them are mounts of the 6 champions of the city.

The dozens of communes are built around a few select species that they specialize with breeding. The city's military is comprised of the largest mounted divisions in the world, over 12 thousand strong.
- West Bay:
- West bay, the city of maritime. This city is the majour producer of sea worthy vessels meant to hunt beasts in the deep ocean. It also is the producer of over 60% of the fish consumed by all cities. The city is renowned for its impeccable sailors and fearless military. They also produce large siege equipment meant to fight the great beasts. The city has no set districts and is immensely disorganized. The entire city is built as though it was meant for sailing folk and lowlifes. It is very poorly kept and has a high rate of death but little poverty
Its military is full of outstandingly brave men and women. Very rarely will a ship flee from a battle with a sea monster and even rare still is their willingness to retreat out of fear. Their ships are well equipped, some bolstering over 80 dragon slayer ballistas and even several dragon spears. Their ships also have metal hulls which allow them to take direct hits from most beasts. Their heroes are also known to be the most fearless and reckless of all heroes, often running headfirst into groups outnumbering them 20 to 1 and coming out bruised and beaten, but never defeated. The government style is based on a hierarchy of power. The strongest and smartest will rule. Their current leader has been the only individual to successfully lead an army to breach the walls of Quint over 2 centuries ago.
- Eviro is the religious capitol of the continent. Its libraries and vast collections of religious scripts have given insight to the last 5 centuries of development. This city prides itself and being the only city that allows religious tolerance of all cults, sects, and any other religious standings. The city's primary function is to keep all records of any and all political and spiritual doctrines, occurrences, or writings. It also is the leading producer of most divine warriors and scholars.
The city is sub divided into 12 main districts, based on the deities that are commonly worshiped, each with 12 sub districts based on the number of city states.
The city's government is based upon religious equality. Each of the 12 main districts has 3 elected officials set to run the district. The city as a whole has 2 spiritual leaders that are voted into power by the elected officials of the districts. The 2 spiritual leaders must be a man and a woman and must know and rehearse the majour tenets of each deity. The city's military is a joint military and is thus the least organized. Despite its lack of organized power the many different religious sects provide many different teachers that allow a large and diverse army. The main military force for the city is their unique and powerful magic hunters called Peace Keepers.
- Ancoff in located in between the cities of Quint and Trahl. This cities focus is merely agricultural in nature. They produce most crops that are exported to all the other cities. The only crop they do not produce is grain, because it a common plant in all other cities. The annual output of the city's crop yield measures approximately 97,000 metric tons. Despite its tremendous output the city holds little gold to itself, instead encouraging their heroes to protect supply lines and create new profitable trade.
The government system is communist in nature. All individuals work to help each other and support their champions. They hoard gold away for anyone to use in times of emergency. The city has no standing military, however soldier from quint are always there to protect the walls since the city's embargo of other city state about 1 century ago.
The city is split into 5 majour districts each devoted to a unique family of crops. Berries, Orchard and vineyard fruits, Ground vegetables, Herbs and spices, and stock plants (Corn, hay, and beans).
- Sky Touch:
- Sky touch, just like Ancoff, is a communist society. They are located to the far north of the continent on the other side of the Igosis Mountains. The city itself is nestled at the base of a large peak named Iron Maw. The peak is approximately 19000 ft high and 70% pure iron. Though hard to mine the mountain allows the city to produce the purest steel in the world only match by the Ia clan of the Ikoatka Isles. This steel and other unique metals are their majour trade exports, importing food and woods to help expand in the baren cold of winter.
The government structure is built around a communist ideal, however the heroes of the city have the right to take as much money as they deem necessary. The standing military of the city is built entirely around their heroes. No more than 2 heroes are allowed to leave the city at any one time. Each hero has a group of 5 to 10 select guards once they have passed the 5 trials. The trials consist of Skill, Courage, Spirit, Flesh, and Insight. The city appears Slavic in nature and it can produce weapons and armor that can even resist magic.
City of the Gourge:
- City of the Gourge:
- The City of the Gourge is wide known as the glimmering city. At night it is said that the mines on the opposing wall glow with gem light. The city was founded deep within a ravine in the steppes below the Igosis Mountain range. It is the only city that produces special gems, magic jewelry, and the valued unique thread stone. The city is not broken down into districts, however their mines are. Their mines are broken down into special metals, precious stone, and abnormal material. Since the gourge is built into the side of sand stone steppes most of the city does not see daylight and is instead lit by an artificial sky. The city has little else to pride itself on, but its underground trade is considered the best in all the city states, if you can find it. The city is also marked as the head quarters for the assassins guild, which is entirely speculation. The city's poverty level is nearly non existant. Even the average worker brings in enough money to be middle class in most other cities. The mine owners spread wealth very generously and are barely any richer than any of their workers.
The city's government structure revolves around their queen, Isi, an immortal being without a known heritage. She was queen 300 years ago when she defended the city from the assaulting marauders hired by other cities to steal their wealth. The military of the city is almost non existent. The military for the city consists of the queen and a group of elite guards that refused a champion's title in order to be defenders of the city.
