City of Terminus
There is only one true city in the vast wasteland that is past the ImperiaThis is Terminus, a shattered city that was once the capital of the Traverse for a long-forgotten kingdom. The Terminus was the largest and most populous city in the contient, with huge fortress walls and endless seas of stone buildings and marble palaces. The city has been destroyed in countless wars and seiges. Buildings are cracked and crumbling. Once proud marble walls have tumbled. Now the ancient stone city is crammed with various denizens and covered in ramshackled wooden structures as far as the eye can see. It is crowded, smelly and extremely chaotic. It is barely held together by the Nullking, a mysterious figure who some rumor is half-man and half-beast. Terminus is seen by the Commune as an unholy, heretical place and few elves venture to it due to a deep-seated belief that the land it was built on is cursed and doomed.
Terminus has little governance and the only sign of authority is the Terminus Serjeants. These are mysterious masked men completely wrapped in cloth with silver masks. They seem to be an unstoppable force when in action but rarely intervene in daily life.
