Once a major citadel of the lost kingdom of Adar, this now independent city-state is a refuge of shelter and commerce in an otherwise bleak and desolate wilderness of the steppes. The city is located at the northern tip of the Shadow Mountains, near the coast of the Sea of Adar in a region known as the Erenath Valley, on the vast Khorlann Steppes. The city has always strove for independence, but with powerful neighbors to the east, its rulers have traditionally bent the knee to ensure their survival. The city of Khorlanis is protected by a well-trained and well-equipped force of 300 Orellian mercenaries, formerly of the Thunderbolt Regiment. The city of Khorlanis is accessible via the Adar Road, which connects it to the city of Sirilath to the south, and the Krensway, which connects it to the Marundian city of Derilath to the west. Khorlanis is currently governed by the Margrave Yavoshay Bentham, a cunning Thalari merchant and shrewd politician.
