Nestled within Baron’s Bay along the western coast, Ithenost is a jewel of elven culture and society. Strict in its mercantilic laws, the city is known far and wide as a center of trade and insight into the long-heralded elven sophistication. These laws; however, are entirely focused on the fluidity of business and fiscal success. Crimes and infractions within the city that do not directly impede trade are often dismissed by the city guards or ignored outright.
As a logical byproduct of an elven-dominated society, the city itself is divided into several quarters dependent upon financial station, with the exception of the Human Quarter. This quarter as a whole has drastically lower value and has often been coined, “the Slums.”
In contrast, it shares the bay with the racially unbiased Freeport, a sister city whose economic potential equals Ithenost’s through it’s embrace of cultural diversity.
