A ray of light amidst the mysterious darkness of the Shadow Realm is Corremel, City of Lanterns. The busy metropolis, sometimes referred to as Corremel-in-Shadow, is lit by countless lanterns made of an assortment of materials: black iron, sparkling silver, polished glass, and, on occasion, bone. Corremel is situated on the banks of the River Lethe near two shadow roads. These shadow roads connect Corremel-in-Shadow with the Nurian city of Corremel and the Free City of Zobeck, making the City of Lanterns a distinct trade hub that sees creatures from all nations of Shadow and many of Midgard. This combining of cultures has left Corremel with a distinct architectural style that is an amalgam of central Midgardian, Nurian, and shadow fey.
