Aldingstone is the largest city in all of Eleutha. It rests in almost the center coastal region of the continent. It acts as a hub between Echo Village in the north and Jacinta in the south, making it a rich and powerful trade city. The city has a large harbor in the south and The Sand Canal that runs through it. Aldingstone is a large and magnificent city with many different races calling it home. Many large wondrous structures can be seen from anywhere in the city. Arts and culture flourish here under the progressive ruling council.
The council is made up of seven elected individuals. The two most important and influential of which are the sinister and corrupt Marius Ghast and Her Most Holy Light, Sulin. The two couldn’t be further polar opposites. Sulin is the head of the church of Pelor, hand selected by the deity to spread his light. Marius Ghast serves only his own agenda and seeks to wrestle control of Aldingstone into his sole hands. He uses fear and intimidation to further his cause. He is said to be the true head of the East Mire Cartel.
Sulin resides in the temple compound of Pelor. The compound also houses the Keepers of the Light. Clerics and Paladins bound to serve Pelor and protect Sulin with their lives. They often work hand in hand with the city guard to help maintain the city and outlying areas.
The East Mire Cartel on the other hand work only for personal gain. They run a monopoly on crime in the city. They’re led by a large southerner named Kaziz. Many believe they call the tunnels of the Undercity home but you can always be certain you’re never far from the prying eyes of it’s many shadow agents.
As dangerous as the East Mire Cartel are, they are certainly not the most dangerous thing to be found in the Undercity. All manner of sinister beings have been reported below and packs of ravenous ghouls can sometimes be heard at night howling from below.
