The cities of Overworld are many and varied, especially in Erevil and Sensis where most of the coastal regions are dominated by megalopolises containing billions of individuals. The largest cities in Overworld are unquestionably along the east and west coasts of Erevil, however. Rahm, the de facto capital of the entire continent of Erevil, is widely known as a cultural hub in which a disproportionate amount of the world's trade happens.
|Cities of Overworld|
Easily the most populous continent in Overworld, Erevil is home to the largest trade hubs in the entire world. Chief among these is Rahm, a city spanning hundreds of miles along and inward of the eastern coast. Despite its distance from the major free trade cities in Sensis, large and active trade routes connect it with the western coast, and by extension the air and sea routes to the east coast of Sensis.
Rahm has no distinct borders, having been formed as a conglomerate of smaller trade-based kingdoms in the region hundreds of years ago. Before Kodama was largely sealed off from outside trade, Rahm and the western coastal cities of Kodama had a thriving open market economy bolstered by exchanges based on unique crafts and technology coming back and forth from both regions. With the clan wars occurring over the past couple of hundred years in Kodama, trade between the continents has slowed to a trickle through official channels, though there remains a booming black market. Many powerful figures take advantage of this black market despite difficulties like trade embargoes and steep fines for transport of unsanctioned dwarven goods on elven soil.
A relatively new, unexplored land along the north coast of Kodama, Halicarn doesn't have many major cities. Most of the occupied land in Halicarn in ungoverned, subject to no country or continent's laws, and essentially an area of free reign for those who wish to escape society and forge out on their own.
Halicarn's southern coast has become a series of ports popular with those who wish to transport contraband to the northwest of Sensis, and its interior is largely unexplored.
Having been cut off from most of the outside world for almost two hundred years, the primarily dwarven residents of Kodama do not build cities in the same way as other regions. While they still have a large surface presence, most cities in Kodama are actually almost entirely underground. The dwarven cities make the most of Overworld's rocky crust, extending almost two miles underground in some areas.
Those portions of Kodama which exist above ground were mainly built to appease visitors who expected surface-dwelling life in the area. As such, many of the largest cities in Kodama have huge airy temples, covered arboretums, mile-wide indoor markets, and parks shaded by Gothic architecture that rivals natural mountains in scope and grandeur. These sprawling buildings, often considered masterworks of non-magical engineering, are rarely seen by outsiders because of constant faction warfare between different clans whose conflicts span the entire continent.
