Hertal is the capital city of the Efinian Empire. It is located in the County of Efinia at the end of the Tiefbucht bay. It is a large city on the crossroads of both land and naval trade routes coming from all over the world. On the markets of Hertal one can find everything from eastern spices to martenian cloth. In the past slaves were also on sale here, but about 30 years ago the Empire banned slavery and all slaves on its territory were freed.

To mitigate that the defences were supplemented by building bastion fortification outside the old walls. The new defensive line is built to survive artillery fire and have firing posts for artillery and infantry.
