The Bloodstone Lands
Procampur, Jewel of The Vast, is the richest of the independent cities of The Vast, challenged only by Ravens Bluff and Tantras. It was a booming city before the founding of the Standing Stone and the creation of Dale-Reckoning. The city-state is bordered on the north coast of the Sea of Fallen Stars and the eastern shore of the Dragon Reach. From its early days until today, it has been a city noted for its skilled goldsmiths, ornate and fine quality hardware (smithy work), and gem cutters. It is ruled by a hereditary overlord with the title of Thurtyl.
The present Thurtyl is a young man, Rendeth of the Royal Blood, who is aided by the Hamayarch, the mage advisor to the Thultyrl. The current mage is Alamondh. Procampur’s population of 55,000 is at least 97% human. Beyond the Thurtyl ‘s Castle, the city is divided into areas reserved not so much for differing classes, but for differing activities.
The eight districts are delineated with walls 15 feet high. Royal orders are strict with regard to which activities may be performed in which district. The city is roughly circular. Two stub walls curve southwest to meet the shore, forming a crescent outside the circle. This crescent is the port, where visitors and citizens come and go freely, acting more or less as they please. The Great Way is a broad avenue that runs from the Port District up to the Thultyrl’s castle. Opening off this walled avenue are gates into the eight inner city districts, each with is own guards. Each district also has gates into adjacent districts. Slate roofs of a different color mark each district.
