(population: 27,000) Located on the northern coast of Renthara Isle, Akros is the second largest city in the kingdom of Rennsfar.

This ancient city was originally founded by the Elder-Elves, who called it "Alarë." For many centuries, the city was an integral part of elven realm of Wyntharë.

That all ended in the year 884/3, during the Great Rift, when the city was destroyed in a catastrophic earthquake, and the elves were forced to abandon the ruins.

Eventually, the city was rebuilt by Ralani settlers who had colonized the Isle of Renthara. Now under their control, the Ralani re-named the city "Akros," and it grew immensely in both size and importance.

Today, Akros is a major seaport on the Sea of Ralas. In its sprawling harbor, hundreds of tiny fishing boats unload their daily catches, while dozens of large merchant ships load olive oil, wine, and lumber destined for many far-away ports. It is not uncommon to find vessels from far-away cities such as Eldarand, Natharos, Pike's Ferry, Rastios, Tymor, and Wyn Falas.

This city's wealth has made it home to many powerful and influential families.

The city of is currently ruled by Duchess Isenia Reggio.


The Catacombs of Alarë

One lasting legacy of Akros' heritage is the vast network of elven catacombs which still exist below the city streets.

Many ages ago, the elves of Alarë constructed many underground passages to serve as tombs.

Long ago, the Veiled Society sealed of all known entrances to the elven catacombs.

However, rumors persist of elves and other strange folk still dwelling down in the dark passages below the city streets.
