Province of Maeling

Seven Martial Artists left Nork and traveled for years before coming to a valley. There, they built Maeling in honor of the Dojo who trained them. Inside the fortified walls of the city, the streets are ominous and full of small shops and secret gardens. A walled pathway, etched with griffons and brightly colored dragons, follows the edge of the buildings, adding protection against the untamed creatures that roam outside.
For the traveler, Maeling is a difficult city to understand. The inhabitants use an uncommon dialect, indigenous to Maeling, and the shops sell exotic wares. Outside the city, a forest leans back against the mountains, which are honeycombed with caves. Strange beasts inhabit the Maeling wilderness, where only the very brave and skillful survive.
