Monarch Hall was once the seat of power of an old Eladin empire that covered much of the land. Half of the city is in ruins from the war’s destruction. But the faction of the city that still stands still makes it among the largest pre-war cities still standing. It’s currently the heart of Cormag’s barbarian horde. The warlord chose to use Monarch Hall as his seat of power in part for the prestige of sitting on the throne of the oldest empire, but also because Monarch Hall is surrounded by Red Fog, making attack against it, or escape, impossible. Only with the work of dozens of wizards loyal to Cormag is the Red Fog pushed back enough for a narrow pass to allow entry to the fortress city.
