(pop: 35,000) Highspire is one of the five city-states of the Republic of Kendar, located in one of the secluded mountain-top valleys of the Hellfire Mountains.

It is said that in ages past, actual dragons nested in the caves and surrounding this small city in the clouds. From the tallest towers of Highspire, one can look down to a dizzying height and see the coastal city of Shard far below, and ot the east, one can see the towers of Axilon, built upon its island on the Lake of Glass.

The city of Highspire is ruled by Sky-Lord Aricela DeKoven.
