The Sanguine Harvest
Nuremstadt is the capital of the Kingdom of Volkar and by far the largest city to be found in Mitleia. Situated along the east coast of the continent, Nuremstadt is surrounded with smaller villages and towns, supporting the vast network of farms and ranches necessary to feed the people of the city, who number over 300,000.
The city itself is divided into eight, mostly autonomous districts surrounding a central, circular footpath for travel between districts which in turn surrounds the central ‘Celestial Spire’ of Nuremstadt which holds the Throne of King Volkar, the chambers of the High and Low Councils and the Sovereign Court of Volkar.
