Traversing the steep and uninviting slopes of the Brighriden Range, you may find yourself hearing sounds of clanging metal being carried by the wind. Do not fret, as these sounds are not a figment of your tired, frozen brain, but simply the colossal, tiered, mountainous mining city of Ko'varos. Enter through the immense iron door in the clifface and ride the metal plate all the way down into the deep.
Ko'varos is a city consisting of 4 tiered Districts: (from the top down) Mightgarde, the city's defense, politics and justitiary hub, as well as the home of some of the upper class citizens; Midgrave, the largest tier, which is purely a housing district for Ko'varos citizens; Emberdrift, which is the city's industrial district, home to the enormous forges of Ko'varos, all manner of shops and the city's famed underground market; And finally, Irondeep, which is the smallest tier, housing only a few supply stores and the entrances to the extensive mycelium of mineshafts that run throughout the entire Brighriden Range and surrounding areas.
Ko'varos does not run on a typical day/night cycle according to the sun, instead the citizens live by six hour "shifts". Each citizen is attuned to a certain shift and spend six hours working and then the six hours until their next shift doing what they like.
Patron deity: Wen'dolyn: Patron of Blacksmiths
The mines of Ko'varos were opened in the cycle 7 P.R. In the beginning it was a small mining town, that remained very isolated from the outside world. However, as more and more rare and valuable ore was excavated from the Brighriden Range, it drew the attention of many miners hoping to find their fortune and rebuild their lives after the Collapse. It slowly started to grow, and it garnered even more attention as people realized that the mines' veins never ran out of precious metals; there always seemed to be more ore.The city continued to gradually grow and expand and more people interested themselves for the development of more uses for all the metal that was being mined in the mountains. Many mechanical and technological advances have been made in this city, including the invention of the first gun, and the rising and falling metal plate that brings travellers and locals alike up and down between the surface world and the city.
