Upon the coast of the Isle of Appley is the island's capital, which shares it's name. Appley is mostly renowned for its apple industry. The name was inspired by the thick Apple Tree Forest, which many have cultivated into orchards.   This city is packed with workshops, breweries and various other types of industrial buildings to keep the 'Apple Cog' turning. It is said by the local, every citizen of Appley, known as APPLEY_DEMONYM, is part of the 'Big Apple'.

Somehow Lord Vonak Dragonmaul sounds like he should be ruling somewhere more scary-sounding, rather than the charming sounding Appley. :D
