Echoes of Glory
Alsov is an aging city in the Jagged Peaks of the Freelands. Teeming with nearly 26,000 people, and arranged into progressively higher quarters, it has become ridden with food shortages and disease. The noble class live in the upper quarters of the city and have much more spacious accomodations, while the middle-class and the peasants are progressively more cramped and restrained. Outside the city, a shanty-town of some 3,000 souls has grown from people fleeing the Low Winterlands through Hellfrost Keep.
Aslov lies on the major trade route between Bridgewater and the Low Winterlands. Many merchants reside here, and the city has a strong, and sometimes brutal, militia force.
