Kingstown Settlement in Aubadeon | World Anvil

Kingstown

Kingstown is the seat of power for the western continent, all of which has traditionally been under the King's control.

The town is built into a narrow valley in a mountain pass with one side of the city being built into the side of Sun's Font, the highest mountain on the continent. The castle is built into the side of the mountain with supporting structures actually extending back into a network of caves.

The exposed portion of the castle includes the primary living quarters for the King and some of the nobles, as well as the Chapel of Light, the most elaborately formed chapel in the kingdom which brings in tourism from the devout around the land.

The area around the castle is home to minor nobles, guild halls, and areas of extended learning.

Along the walls are the quarters for the King's protectors, keeping the army in constant readiness in case of attack.

Defences

Industry & Trade

As the heart of the kingdom with the guild halls in place, Kingstown boasts access to products from all over the land. In good weather, there are weekly Marketday celebrations when artisans and farmers come from all over to share their art and produce.
