Tirans

From Paravia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Tirans is a landlocked city at the crossroads of five trade roads in East Halla, Melhalla. It is connected to Whitehold, Varens, Easttair, Perdith, and Kalesh. Tirans occasionally finds itself at odds with the clan rulers of Alestron but maintains a frail truce with clansmen and Charter Law.

There are also ruins by the same name, located to the southwest of the city. The clan seat at Tirans fell in Third Age 5018 during the rebellion.

Layout

The city is fairly prosperous, with three-story mansions demonstrating nonchalant affluence. The Flocked Starling Inn can be found here.
