The Free-City of Khorbul - The Iron Hammer
The Free-City of Khorbul, also known as “The Iron Hammer”, is a city founded centuries ago, and forms an independent nation which is the exclusive domain of the mysterious Adena. The city never made any contact with the outside world, until TR 714, when the city sent a formal emissary to the Kingdom of Phaedra asking for entrance into their Worthhold, which was accepted. The Adena are believed to have sought association because of a hidden magical plague, which may have required the powers of the Gray Council to solve. The city and its surrounding forested lands are a dark, haunting place of ancient traditions, but the inhabitants remain kind, if reserved, to visiting merchants. Khorbul’s forests are virtually uninhabited, and other than its nearby tin and lead mines, produces only masterwork leather armour as a trade good.
