Danhold

On the Elval island lies Danhold, an ancient city, acting as the gate to the Emerald archipelago and a resting place for the ships going either north or further south into the archipelago.   When the lordship over Danhold that was at that time just a small fishing village was given to the The Ruxmer Dynasty They saw that the harbour would be expanded and the family would use some of their connections with other noble houses to make Danhold into an attractive place to do trade.   As time went on, more and more people of all kinds began to move to Danhold, creating an atmosphere full of music, spices and a myriad of different languages and dialects from all over Mirateia.   During and after the time of the Ancient Empire fall the city was able to maintain a safe place for merchants and this is largely why it didn't fade into a forgotten place like it was before the Ruxmers.
