Era of Upheaval
Lakeside at night
Lakeside is a city part of the Five Towns Alliance. Historically, it is the ancestral seat of the next in line for the Galad-nen throne. The city is built during the long age of mending by the elves of valenor as a gift to the crown prince. The city has switched hands once, when the Hu empire occupied southern Darastra. King Landon’s father launched a campaign to unify the five towns under one banner and drove the Hu empire out.
Elven and Hu influence are plainly seen in the city’s design and the two cultures seem to blend as one. During King Landon’s reign, Castien Aemyar stayed at the Prince’s keep named Aryondil. WIth King landon’s line ended, Aryondil’s halls remain empty the small forest around it dark and untended. Now the mysterious Lady Aelina tends to the prosperous city with her owlguard keeping the peace.
