A large cove nested between the southwestern border of the southern continent and its southern outcropping serves as the home to a large metropolitan city, inhabited by members of most sentient races. The grand metropolitan nature of the city is largely due to the massive bardic college at the heart of the city.
Training its students in magic and diplomacy. Iskola* University is a well respected institution of learning. In addition to providing education to its undergraduates, it offers them employment upon graduation, and with that employment comes status. The university sends its students out to explore the world, and return with information – either about global politics, or of historical significance – songs and stories of their travels, and artifacts and treasures from the lands they visit. Welcome in most communities for the wealth and entertainment they inevitably bring, even bardic apprentices encounter a closed door.
The city itself sprawls to the very edge of the nation’s borders, and touches the clouds with its spires. A hub of trade and an ideal port of call for Veparan trading vessels, Dalnok is an incredibly crowded city, which is made even more impressive because of its size. Because of the massive population, the underworld that comes with a population so hard to control is always a source of employment for those in need of coin.
Due to the great importance of magical education in the city, technological applications of such magic are abundant and benefit almost every citizen of the city.
