Primary Races


Founded in -1327 by Gordson Hoya Erford is the oldest city on Delesia that is not currently in ruins. According to records the city once served as home to the Chaos Eluding Intelligent Entity, but they have since moved on.

Standing atop a hill overlooking the city, Fumonary Manor sits abandoned since 488 when Chadwick Fumonary was found murdered. Rumors say that the manor is currently haunted, though this hasn't been confirmed.


The cities main trade goods revolve around their fisheries, and ore mining. Many local craftsmen have made aggrements with fishermen to get bones, shells, or other materials caught while fishing. The most desirable has been bones which special artisians have been able to carve into instruments, and even some statues. The most popular use though is in a game of Bones and Stones.


Being a member of the guild grants fishermen access to some of the most prime fishing spots along the coast. Members are required to have the guild's symbol on thier boat, or the catch is conficated by the guild.
Bone Carvers
A group of elite craftsmen that have perfected the art of carving the bones brought in from the sea. Joining this guild requires 4 years training under a current member, and the passing of a guild sponsored contest.


Elections are held yearly for key government positions on a rotating basis. In order to be eligible for election one must have completed 5 years of unpaid service to the city, and pay a 1,000 gp petition to the cities treasury. Names are then added to the ballot for positions of Mayor, Head of Treasury, Judge, Education Secretary, and Captain of the Guard.


The city proper sits atop cliffs along the Strait of Gordson to the south. The city is within a days travel of the Forest of Lockemoor to the north. The land between the city wall and the forest is grassy and the perfect spot for hunting some of the local predators like lions.
