Dark Lords of Praemor
The largest city and capital of the great kingdom of Thartaenor, home to many temples, libraries, and artisans. Much of the great architecture of the city was damaged or destroyed during the conquest, and many of its citizens have been conscripted to restore the city to its former glory. The entire palace was destroyed during the climatic battle between the fell magics of the unliving Ossiraekes and the elven Queen Mother of Thartaenor, the famed Yirrisa Twiceborn. In the end, Yirrisa fell to Ossiraekes’s powerful spells and her soul-infused blades shattered into dozens of pieces.
Thartaen is now an occupied city ruled by one of Ossiraekes’s foremost generals, Maenoch the Rememberer, and its original inhabitants live under draconian military rule. A few enterprising Praemorian merchants and opportunists have taken the opportunity to settle into the city as favored citizens inside a heavily guarded foreigner quarter. Despite these restrictions, a thriving resistance movement has emerged within the city.
