Rilsavar

(population: 35,000) Rilsavar is Elyria's bustling capital, located between the edge of the Greenwood and the banks of the Eldir Vaas river.


Rilsavar is a wealthy city, derived from the trade of lumber and pipe-weed from the Greenwood Forest and incoming goods from the river. Because of its proximity to Grenshire, this city has an unusually large population of halflings.

Rilsavar is accessible from north and south via the Axeway, and from the west by the Greenway.

On a large flat hill, overlooking the city is the impregnable fortress of Castle Krasdan. Rilsavar is currently governed by Duke Rand Tokari.

Local History


The present day city of Rilsavar traces its origins back to the Third Age, when it was founded by Fergus Rilsav; an important leader of the Vryne Clan. For many years, Rilsavar was little more than a trading post along the Eldir Vaas.

By the late Third Age, Rilsavar had grown from a small settlement into a large, thriving city. The city came into prominence when it became the capital of the "Kingdom of Rilsavar." This Kingdom, which was really nothing more than a City-State, was ruled for centuries by the House of Rilsav.

The Rilsavs fought against the Iskari during the Karthic Wars, but when the war turned against them, changed sides and joined with the Kingdom of Cyrendar to avoid complete destruction.

In the year 15/5, King Casperian Rilsav of Rilsavar was slain at the Battle of Axbridge by Erin Fremantle, during his campaign to forge the Kingdom of Erindar.

Rilsavar remained part of Erindar for many years, but after the War of Succession, it became the capital of Elyria under a new ruler named Queen Elwyn.
