Argonnessen: A Draconic Exaltation
Verthicha’vivex is the fortress city home of the Light of Siberys. Situated in the middle of the very inhospitable subcontinent of The Light, it is a beacon of hope is a sea of darkness. Believed to have been built with vast Dragonic Magics during the Age of Demons, the fortress itself towers above the landscape like a deep volcanic mountain. It’s upper levels were created to hold thousands of dragon flights at a time but these days, it houses no more than a few thousand at any one point. The reaches of the city extend far into the land underneath and (some believe) into Khyber itself. It is the home to a slew of dwarves, hobgoblins, goblins and kobolds that have worked to serve their Dragon masters tireless for generation after generation. It is also host a vast number of Stone Giants and Iron Constructs which help to man the city states vast forges and volcanic cores.
Common lore says that any who walk in the Light may find sanctuary in Verthicha’vivex, but in practice all but the most hearty of adventurers fall to the denizens of the Cult of the Dragon below long before they make it within site of the towers of Light. Still, the Light will accept any allies in the battle against The Dragon Below and Tiamat, her most precious daughter.
