The port of the north
The sun reflected in the water, the sound of crashing waves floated through the air. It was a cold and clear morning. A few fishers were already out on the sea in their boats. A few dinghies had found their way out, but one was returning due to the harsh waves. The sun made its way from the shore and into the mostly empty streets of Arcmore as a new day began.With a population of aproximately 960, Arcmore is the smallest of the three major Treil settlements in Halivaara. The village is rather secluded, just like the two other settlements, as they are cut off from the rest of Ildres due to the disputes between the Treil and the Nerna. Arcmore is mostly dependent on itself and if there is any need for import, the only other settlements they have contact to are those within Halivaara. They have little contact with the humans in the Kingdom of Edrea. In reality they only have contact to Hinall, and even that is limited.
The village of Arcmore was founded around 300 AK, so roughly 450 years ago. It was one of the three major places were the Treil fled to after the Nerna hunted them, rounded them up and tried to eradicate them from Ildres. The area Arcmore is in is called Halivaara and it belongs to the Treil by old agreements. Ildres no longer honours these agreements, but the country has been too busy with the first and Second Great War with the humans to persecute the Treil any further. Arcmore was the last of the three settlements to be founded, and it's the one furthest away from the rest of Ildres.
The reason people left the biggest village was primarily due to food shortages. Those in Arcmore now live off the sea and they have specialised themselves in sea voyage and fishing. The inhabitants of Arcmore have been known to be among those who raided in Bech in The Kingdom of Edrea. Hinall was one of the primary targets due to the large amount of goods and materials they had. There are still new people coming into Arcmore, most are either Humans or they're Half-breeds fleeing from certain death.

The typical architecture found in Arcmore is highly linked to the materials that can be found nearby. Dark timber, stones and clay is very typical building materials and that is reflected in the houses around town. The private homes in the city follow the general architectural style of Rama Houses, which are common in Halivaara and Treil settlements.
Public buildings often resemble the private abodes. The colorscheme is generally mirrored throughout the entire town, except for the Arcmore Sacred Halls, which is built with light-coloured stone materials imported mostly from Wodila'hei as well as wood stolen from Hinall.
