Wrath of the Righteous
Nerosyan is a fortress city, constantly being built and rebuilt. It guards the confluence of the Egelsee River, arising in the Estrovian Forest, and the chill waters of the West Sellen River, flowing south from the high tundra and the eternal northern ice fields beyond. The city is laid out in a diamond pattern in the angle between the rivers, with perpendicular bastions partitioning it to slow the progress of invaders. Dozens of towers surmount the walls, capped
with slit-pierced screens sloped at high angles to shed heavy snowfall and to guard its defenders against flying horrors.
The fourfold gates of the Cruciform Cathedral at the city’s heart allow the crusaders to respond quickly to threats from any quarter. For those who know where to look, Nerosyan
retains a subtle residue of its piratical past, but in general itis a city with clarity of purpose, indomitable strength, cool beauty, and a sharp edge poised against the corruption just
across the river, fully earning its nickname—“the Diamond of the North.”
