The city’s name changed as it exchanged control from one religious faction to another after a series of holy wars, but is currently called Felmentua. This city stopped being fought over so much when, around a hundred years ago, the mountainside that the city was built upon became a volcano. The eruption happened quickly, and destroyed nearly half of the city. the only reason that the city was preserved was because of the holy ground in the center of the city. When the lava had gotten to nearly less than half a mile away from the shrine that surrounded it, the magic users quickly conjured up a long force wall, forcing the lava to move around the city. This bold move was orchestrated by a now renowned hero, Mirathas, the Archmage of the council at the time. The force wall still stands today, holding back the continuously flowing lava from Mount Kirator. p. The city itself is now ruled by a council of leaders from different religious groups whose ancestors fought each other bitterly, but now govern in peace, and allow free worship at the holy ground to be fair to all of the groups. They all still argue and bicker about what following is the better one, but not to the extent they fought thousands of years ago. p. The population of Felmentua is rather diverse, from its upper class magic users to it’s slum dwelling peasants, and from its halflings to its elves, dwarves and humans. The only race that is not allowed in Felmentua anymore are the orcs and half-orcs that used to make up the lowest class. But after the Great Orcish War, they were all banned from the city and any of the other states under Felmentua’s control.
