Shadows over Tyner
A merchant town on the coast of the Duchy of Tyner, east of Deventer. Located where the river empties into the sea, it has an advantageous location, benefiting from both river and sea trade routes. While not as big as the capital, it is still a large city, having been established after the fall of the Empire of Light by humans taking over a the surviving section the old city.
Its major landmarks are the Mage’s Academy, the docks, the ghetto, the temple district, a marketplace nearly as good as the capital’s, and The Singing Lark. Located on the outskirts of town, it is a major waypoint for the duchy’s gypsy population.
The town is run by a town council, headed by the mayor. The mayor may not be a member of any guild. This is to ensure that the town is not completely ruled by the merchant class and prevents any inter-guild feuding that could arise from competition for that post.
