Chronicles of Eastlund
Population: 150,000, mixed.
Situated outside of the western gate of Tor Raan'vaald, Beacon is the Capitol city of Eastlund. Named so for the massive Beacon Stone that sits above the gate. Erected before the fall of night, the Beacon drove back the winter, allowing the city to thrive during the Long Night. As such, the city is verdant, with giant trees, parks and gardens on every block. A relatively modern city, Beacon features hot and cold running water, indoor lavatorial facilities, and gas lighting even for the least affluent of dwellings. As the civilian seat of the Eastlundian Empire, guild offices for every branch of dwarven government and ruling clan can be found, as well as the ambassadors for the human principality of Xar, and the Elven city-state of Lunariis. It is said " all roads lead to Beacon", and that can certainly, post night, be said to be true. From 100 miles away the glow of the Beacon Stone can be seen, tho due to its magical nature, it remains a constant glow, even holding watch atop the gate to the dwarf hold.
