(population: 25,000) Krylnath is the seventh largest city in the kingdom of Cyrendar, located along the Lost Coast.


The city of Krylnath may be the smallest of the major Iskari seaports on Westvale Island, the city of Krylnath. However, it remains a bustling and wealthy port of call.

Most city traffic comes via ship, but Krylnath is also accessible on land via the Lost Coast Road which connects it to the neighboring cities of Tharnia and Wyn Falas.

LOCAL HISTORY


The ancient city of Krylnath has a long history which stretches back into the Third Age. Back then, the small settlement of Krylnath was part of the ancient Cynaran Kingdom of Urland, and was the seat of Varia, of one of its royal "Thanedoms." At that time, the ity and the surrounding region were ruled by a local Cynaran Lord called the "Thain of Varia."

After the conclusion of the Forty-Years War, the Cynarans were defeated and the city came under the ruler-ship of the Iskari.

Role in the Iskari Civil War


In the year 1068/4, King Ilcanar Cyrenäe II of Cyrendar was poisoned by Alokkair’s agents, leaving no rightful heir, and Foehammer; the King's Melanthir sword was stolen from Erôn-Wyntharë.

At that time, the Duchy of Varia was led by Lord Kalfus Mandrake, a powerful Cynaran noble who strongly resented his Iskari overlords. In 1068/4, Duke Kalfus, along with the duchies of Cynara and Hennara, rebelled against the Kingdom of Cyrendar.

Fueled by Alokkair’s treachery, Lord Kalfus, along with the Dukes of Cynara and Hennara, rebelled against the Kingdom of Cyrendar and sparked the bloody Iskari Civil War. For the next twenty years, a terrible conflict raged between the opposing factions before all were united under one banner by King Ikharos Blackburn in the year 1087/4.

After the war's end, King Ikharos destroyed House Mandrake. Duke Kalfus Mandrake and two of his sons were slain in battle, and his third son was executed. Ikharos then broke the Duchy of Varia into the four smaller Duchies: Barstow, Stormchapel, Randivik, & Varia, all of which were to be ruled by loyal, hand-picked Iskari Lords.

The ancient home of Castle Mandrake still exists, atop a great hill overlooking the city, although for centuries it has been home to the powerful House of Arzadon.

Today, both the city of Krylnath and the surrounding Duchy of Varia are governed by Duke Exley Arzadon.
