Schemes of the Lich King
Concord, City of Spires
Concord is a blend of high elf spires, woodlands, carved dwarven holds, and halfling burrows—it’s a garden city, and in places too wild to even count as a garden. Elves, dwarves, and other nonhumans are familiar in all the cities of the human-dominated Dragon Empire. But in Concord, nonhumans predominate and have formed a society unlike anything else in the Empire or the kingdoms that would otherwise hold their citizen’s allegiance. The Dragon Emperor, Elf Queen, and Dwarf King are not entirely comfortable with Concord’s blend of citizens and diverse strengths, but so far the experiment has not caught on beyond Concord’s walls. This racial co-existence may be due to the fact that the city itself has magic that enables alliances that would falter elsewhere.
