10.4 The City of Krondor, Western Capital of the Kingdom of the Isles
The City of Krondor thrives on the stormy shores of the Bitter Sea. It is the western capital of the vast Kingdom of the Isles, second only to far-away Rillanon in the east, and Krondor is the seat of the Prince of Krondor: the heir-apparent to the Throne of the Isles. It is a bustling city, and one of the only true bastions of human civilization in the western Kingdom. The west is a land of rugged and untamed frontier, and so too are the people of Krondor, who are pragmatic, hardened, clever, and ambitious. The Royal Lancers and elite Pathfinders keep law and order under the aegis of the eagle banner, but simmering just below the surface is a flourishing underworld of criminal and darker activity, led by the shadowy Mockers guild. Caught in between are vying merchants, traders, and consortiums all competing for wealth and success. These twin worlds exist in constant competition and flux, lending an intoxicating and deadly game of chance and fate to the swarming port city.
