The Imperial Cairn

The Imperial Palace rises out of Cairn Rock almost like a natural extension of the rock formations, the only entrance to it a well built and strong jetty for the boats to dock to. The long path to the Palace gates, overlooked by the great walls protecting the Emperor, or in his place, his servant, the Imperial Chamberlain.

Cairn Rock is situated in the middle of the bay. Its natural defensive position makes it as safe from any attack as possible, except a for a protracted siege by sea, though an enemy's ships would have had a hard time maintaining a blockade, given the unpredictable swells and currents of the bay in the Straits of Aerele. Unless a captain really knew these waters, he could easily wind up on the jagged rocks that ringed the island like a deadly necklace.

The Imperial Chamberlain makes his private quarters in the Tower, from which he can look out across the bay at the Imperial city of Anuire.

The Crystal Rose
The Imperial City's finest tavern: the most prominent figures of the continent dine here.

Karena Bloom, a tall woman, elegant and well bred, with fair hair and blue eyes in her early thirties, is the owner and proprietress of the Crystal Rose. Some whisper there is a trace of Sidhle blood in her veins, most point to her noble heritage and scoff at such rumours.

The second daughter of a minor Avanese lord in Taliern, who married a well respected Mhorien knight nearly two decades older than herself. Widowed, childless, and left with very little to live on, she accepted a protector and came south to the Imperial City as his Mistress. For the last six or seven years, she has quietly accepted protection from one or two noblemen, eventually coming up with the money to start her own establishment. No one knows who her current protector is, or if she even has one.

The Crystal Rose, with its magnificent view of the bay and plenty of private alcoves soon became known as one of the Imperial City’s finest establishments, when the most prominent figures of the continent can be found dining on any given evening.
