The Bloodstone Lands
Lyrabar, sometimes called the Queen’s City, is a beautiful harbor city on the northern banks of the Sea of Fallen Stars not far from the Impiltur’s western border, which ends at the clawing feet of the Earthfast Mountains. Lyrabar is long and narrow, a strip city arrayed along the waterfront. Her docks are extensive and her fleet is enviable, floating numerous warships and merchant vessels. Lyrabar is the largest city in Impiltur, and likely all the Bloodstone Lands.
Impiltur’s capital and major population center, the city is ruled by the twelve Lords of Imphras. The city boasts Impiltur’s largest and most magnificent buildings, particularly the golden-domed Castle Lyrabar of Queen Sambryl, and Tower Pureheart, demesne of the Lords of Imphras, the 12 ruling warcaptains who make up the council of Impiltur. Their leader is Regent War Captain Kyrlraun (KEEL-rawn).
It has plentiful temples and shrines, guildhouses and colleges, and even a large botanical garden. There appears little in the way of poverty here, and thieving is almost unheard of. Criminal activity is dealt with quickly and harshly.
