Gollant, YV 540

The Perenia group has been playing an urban campaign, at least so far. Their activities have been in Fort Gollant, now called only Gollant, the town founded by Emil Gollant with the help of Hilbrent, Benquil, and Lamila. It is now the seat of a Duchy (the last campaign left it seat of a March) and the largest city in Vardor. This is as a result of its reign as a capital of magical research under Hilbrent’s magic school, until the ban on magic, and after as a capital of technological advancement. It has led Vardor and the world into an industrial era in the centuries since the ban.IMG_20180330_230148

It has also long been a mecca for worshipers of many gods throughout the world, on account of the Temple of the Many Gods just a days journey away, a temple which Benquil carefully kept up to date with all the gods of the world. A number of those gods now have at least a small church in the city and as a result, members of all races walk its streets.

Its population of 1.5 million includes a greater number of halflings than anywhere outside their home in Stormguard, most of whom work in the factories. The city is also home to many goblins (migrated from Stormguard, some seeking the only Rukarah worship left int he world) and gnomes (migrated from the northern gnomish lands to attend Hilbrent’s school of magic and later technology). Their havens within the city are origins of wild technologies that fill the city with their roaring and whirring.

Most of the populous are humans of Vardor origin, though minotaurs from the tribes native to the area are also common. Elves, immigrated to be near Brimahil’s Tower (which thanks to Benquil’s and Mickey’s efforts competes with Brimahil’s Jewel on the east coast as her principle temple), make up a significant portion, and are joined by drow, descendants of converts through Benquil and Evren.

Other races are few in number, but include nekolyn, orcs, kobolds, and dwarves. There are at most a couple each of centaurs, lizardfolk, and osprytes, they mostly visitors to the Temple of the Many Gods.
