Wrath of the Righteous
Kenabres is a city of glory, but not one of spotless virtue. The crusaders riding out from the city have slain countless demons, and many of them have been carried back to town on their shields to be interred in the catacombs beneath the Cathedral of Saint Clydwell. However, some of these same crusaders — many of them hunting supposedly demon-tainted faiths and burning at the stake cultists and innocent Mendevian alike. The frequency and intensity of these programs have diminished, but the dark history of Kenabres remains ever-present in the minds of the leaders and many of its citizens.
Kenabres hosts camps of crusaders who have come from all across the continent to battle demons. Though many of these crusaders are pure hearted and noble of spirit, others are little more then fortune-seeking mercenaries. Still, none can deny the good deeds done by the knights of Kenabres under the direction of their zealous, strategically brilliant leader Hulrun.
Kenabres is built across a series of graduated tiers that rise from the plains in the east. To the west of the city there is a cliff edge that borders the West Sellen River, which is the main water supply of the city. The gradual increase in population made the town into a city.
There are four districts within Kenabres:
- Old Kenabres: This district is the remainder of the original town of Kenabres. This is the residence of the oldest lineages in the city as well as the administrative buildings.
- Ring District: Around the Old Kenabres district there lies the second tier of the city, which was also a part of the original town of Kenabres.
- New Kenabres: After the opening of the Worldwound, this district was added as a safe haven for the refugees of the lost settlements.
- Gate District: 10 years later, the Gate District followed the construction of New Kenabres as the housing units of the latter could not hold the new population. It is now the city's largest district.
Truestone Quarry is outside the city some 10 miles to the east but, nevertheless, it is very important to Kenabres' survival. The quarry sends caravans weekly to supply Southgate with stone to construct reinforcements of the city's defences.
Kenabres population is around 12,330
