The Five Cities
Remnants of fallen Nerath, the Five Cities stood for over a century after the empire’s fall along what had once been its eastern border. Allied by circumstance, if not always friendly with one another, the cities of Archport, Bastillia, Eolia, Runedar and Tostlin suffered few of the misfortunes that descended upon Nerath’s other heirs.
The good fortunes enjoyed by the signatories of the Five Cities came to an end with the arrival of the Demonruck. One by one, each of the Five Cities fell to the barbaric assaults by the gnoll horde. First Bastillia, then Eolia, Runedar, Archport and finally Tostlin. Refugees who managed to escape by sailing across the ocean founded the community of Sojourn.
