Shorn Cloaks and Tattered Shields
The City for which the Barony of Kelvin takes it’s name is situated at the fork of two rivers. It is also here that the Duke’s road forks, continuing along the Windrush and Hillfollow rivers. This position makes the city a major trade hub linking all parts of the Grand Duchy with neighbouring nations such as Five Shires to the west,Ylaraum and Darokin to the North and Thyatia to the east.
Ruled by Baron Desmond Kelvin, the city is surrounded by a high stone wall but features a smaller area protected by a wooden palisade outside the main walls known variously as the “Camping Grounds” and the “Caravan Grounds”.
