Barker

Shortly after the Dragon War, a fleet of ships landed on the site of Barker, on the north-eastern coast of Keswick. The ship captains founded the town and set up a number of guilds. Over time, these guilds became more established and the town began to operate under a bartering system. Each guild has its own shops and residential district, which barters and trades with the other guilds of the city. No singular party rules New Ports, but various merchant lords rule each guild. Naturally this makes decisions that affect the entire town difficult to make, as everything must be decided before the Council of Merchants.

The people of Barker still live with the same spirit of sea that the founders possessed.  The town has a great number of taverns, and very few permanent residences.  The sea side dock city plays host to all manner of merchant ships from all around Arreanna.  The residents of Barkers live in outskirt smaller cells of communities.  Shopkeepers, tavern owners, and merchants live and operate in Barkers proper.  A council of Captains rule the city, and the people live by the same code as you do on a ship.

Nardual

Nardual is the capital city of Qualinesti.  On the eastern part of Keswick, nestled inside Ruan Wilds, lies the fabled city of Nardual.  Four immense spires rise from each corner of the city, all connected by arched bridges. A hilltop in the center of the city contains a dense grove of trees.  The architecture of the city is a mixture of dwarven craftsmanship and elven grace that enhance nature, but did not overpower it. Most of the buildings are crafted from rose-colored quartz, that were surrounded by gardens.

Vystvellothynn

Of the primeval woods scattered across Arreanna, the Forest of Aum may well be the oldest.  Nestled in the crook of the Frefid Mountians, among ancient groves and valleys not touched by direct sunlight in centuries, stands an ageless tree the inhabitants of Aum name Vystvellothynn (vist–VEL-o-thin), and around this “Green Grandmother of Life” the last pure vestige of Kagonesti culture still thrives.

Vystvellothynn is found deep inside the Aum Woods, and those woods share a boarder with the Frefid Summit.  Vysvellothyn is inhabited by the Kagonesti, but is often visited by Ents, Dryads, and other fey native to the forest.  The inhabitants of forested lands beyond its borders, the darker regions of Aum, are as varied as any ancient woods of Arreanna.
