Realms of the Forsaken Orb
One of the first city-states, Afirtoft was founded during the Triskelian empire. Since its inception, the city has served as a hub of magical knowledge and experimentation. A multi-racial council of magi, called the Anis’Nekhen, rules the city, the head of which is the Archmage Eadmund Alaros, who also oversees the Arcane College of Afirtoft. During the Great War, Afirtoft pledged support to the Arvandor Alliance, giving large amounts of magical aid to the war effort. The city was destroyed in a siege, and abandoned. After the war, surviving members of the Anis’Nekhen returned to rebuild, using powerful magic to tear the city’s foundations from the ground and raise it into the sky.
