Emosvom, Doorway to the Past

“A small city with lazy rivers providing most of the travel. As there is little reason for anyone to travel here, Emosvom is virtually independent. Its only claim to fame is its large prison, and use as a staging ground for expeditions into the Vohven Jungle.”

Population: ~8000
At a Glance: Instead of building bridges across the wide Izhoven, the people rely on barges and ferries. Boats in the sluggish river hardly require mooring, and travel across its brown waters is commonplace and uneventful.

The city reeks of garlic, and the pungent herb makes its way into nearly every item of food. The Emosvomi attribute to the garlic everything from strong nails and teeth to longevity to magical potency.

Government: Ruled by Duke Inawhil

Major Temples:
The Conventicle of the Great Tree
Located in a thick grove of trees a few miles east of the city

Minor Temples:
The Home Foundation
Assembly of the Four Corners
Theater of the Arts
Church of Everlasting Hope
