Haelkaedea

Haelkaedea is the capital city of the Icadean empire, home to the Grand Guildhouses, to the Council and to the largest settlement of humans in the lands of men, sitting proudly in the centre of the Solena Region. It is also one of the most culturally and racially diverse cities in the empire, and is split into districts: the civic quarter sits at the head of the city nestled against the mountainside, housing the council chambers, the castle, the High Temple of Pelor, the College of Mages and the Warriors’ Guildhouse; the cultural quarter is home to the Companions’ Guild, the Bard’s Guild and the gladiatorial arena, as well as number of gardens, theatres and museums; the business quarter houses the Grand Lodge of Merchants and Artisans, an array of shops and traders, an auction house and a number of red lantern establishments, and the residential quarter is where the majority of privately owned residences are based, along with the barracks for the local militia. Not officially recognised as a district in its own right, Lowtown sprawls outward from the edges of the city, lining the residential and business quarters and petering out into small shanty towns here and there.
