Stronghold of Erathis
Originally named Artina, the Stronghold of Erathis is the capital of the Empire of Talimos. It is named for Erathis, the goddess of civilization, invention, law, and cities.
It is a major city with a population of over 30,000 people. The city is directly ruled by the Emperor.
The Stronghold of Erathis is made up of nine wards. The original village of Artina along with the Citadel of Erathis form the central ward. The eight other wards surround the Citadel. Each ward is essentially a walled city in their own right and there are farms outside the walls that supply food for the city. Fresh water springs in each ward provide water for the inhabitants and a river supplies the irrigation for the farms. In extreme emergencies, the springs can be diverted to the fields through a series of canals.
