City%20of%20Derilath.jpg

(population: 24,000) Capitol city of the kingdom of Marundi. The largest city in the kingdom of Marundi, located in the northern foothills of the Ironrock Mountains. Derilath is major road junction. The city accessible via the Cragway which connects it to the northern outpost of Icerock Keep, and the ruins of Al-Enoth, via the Krensway which connects it to the fortress of Kren’s Keep, and via the Derilath Road, which connects it to the seaport of Norethë. Despite the fact that the city is the capitol of the Marundi, Derilath remains an impoverished city, with only fur and ice as its trade exports. Long ago, the city grew from a small arctic settlement under the rule of the Alaghon Dynasty, and replaced the two earlier Thalari cities of El-Gerath and Al-Enoth that dominated the Northern Peninsula in the Fourth Age. On a high pinnacle of basalt overlooking the city is Castle Obsidian, home to the royal family of Marundi. Derilath is currently governed by Duke Gerard Natharë. The city is protected a City-Guard of 300 militia, backed-up by 2,000 royal soldiers at Castle Obsidian.
