Sharn - The City of Towers

Sharn

Sharn and It’s Environs

Sharn isn’t just the cultural center of Khorvaire, it’s also the economic one—at least as far as its citizens are concerned. “If it can be bought, it can be bought here” is a common saying among the city’s markets. Goods and services are available in Sharn from across the continent and even occasionally from across the seas. It’s an open secret that not all these goods and services are legal, despite the best efforts of the Sharn Watch.

Travel across Sharn, and between its various levels, occurs using massive lifts and, for the wealthy, skycoaches held aloft by magic or pulled by beasts such as hippogriffs. Order is maintained, as much as possible, by the Watch, and the city is ruled by a city council, the Lord Mayor, and a vast governmental bureaucracy.
People of Sharn

Humans form the greater part of Sharn’s population, but every other major race of Khorvaire can be found in Sharn, and even the rarer peoples constitute a sizable number of the city’s residents.

That same variety appears in the religious practices of Sharn’s citizenry. Although the Sovereign Host and the Silver Flame have the most followers here, the Blood of Vol, the Dark Six, and even more obscure faiths—such as the various druidic beliefs and the Path of Light—appear with regularity. Cults of the Dragon Below exist in Sharn as well, but even here, they must maintain secrecy.
