Maloran, Jewel of Thassilon
It has been made clear by Alseta ‘The Welcomer’ that the City is the first city, crafted on the first foundation blocks of the world as a citadel of civilization. Those who control the city control, by their nature, all other cities indirectly. In some side talk with representitives of below, it has also been made clear that various factions could intentionally ‘force’ the city to reform in ways that may be weal or woe for others.
The city also has a mind of its own, a wayward child of Alsetas’, laid broken in history and forgotten by its maker for some time. It seems to yearn to be complete again, to rise to its former glory, no matter the outcome.
