Twin Suns

Twin Suns, along with its sister city Twin Moons are collectively know as the Twin cities, and are the gateways into Eroth from the Amrid Ocean. Twin Suns sits on the North Western Shore of Eroth, at the Delta of the Thorn River. It is a Large Walled City that not only acts as the main Ocean Port for Eroth, but guards the river passage to Sanction and the rest of Eroth.   Twin Suns was once the capital of the nation, until Sanction was built on Lake Catherine. The city, is a large metropolis with a diverse population. Its name comes from the Two Suns of Nor, Sost, and Rhea. It is also the site of some very important structures, including the Erothian Academy, The Blue Tower, and the Twin Suns Lighthouse.


While the majority of residents in Twin Suns are Human, There are several neighborhood home to the Terrasti. There is also a sizable population of Halfling both living in the human neighborhoods and the neighborhood Borrowville. It is not uncommon to also find Dwarves amongst the residences though there are no neighborhood dedicated to them. You will also find each of th eother humanoid races though in much smaller numbers.   Most of the residents are lower to middle class, and though a larger portion of the Erothian Nobility live in Twin Suns than any other city, they are still relatively small compared to the rest of the residents. Twin Suns does have a number of homeless and beggars, though much smaller than what is found in most city of the same size.


The Lord of Twin Suns, is usually apointed by the King and the position has historically bee held by the elder of the King's Brothers. If the King has no sibling, then usually a uncle or cousin, though there have been apointments in the past that have no relations to the King. The Lord's title is simply Lord of Twin Suns, and conveys no special powers of the Kingdom, beside that which is granted as Lord of the second largest city in the kingdom.   Unlike the Kingship, the Lordship of Twin Suns is not subject to the powers of the Council of Eroth. The lord is beholden only to the King, and though a new King may replace him, his position survives the death of the monarch.


Twin Suns has a large city Guard and houses several companies of the Erothian Army. In addition there is a garrison of Knights of Eroth. In addition it has the larger portion of Eroth's Navy and ship building facilities. While the Navy are under the command of the Council of Eroth, and not subject to the will of the Lord, they can be called upon to assist the Lord when needed.   The City Guard is well trained, and armed. The Army is one of the best trained in the world and keeps themselves constantly ready for active duty. The Knights of Eroth are known worldwide as some of the greatest warrior in all or Aranthar.

The Perfume District
The perfume district originally got its ame because of the terrible stench which it was known for. During the Third Shadow war, the city was inundated with refugees fleeing Sanction. They settled in Norther Twin Suns, and the city did not have the infrastructure to supposed so many. The unwashed bodies and refuse made for a dangerous situation and some of the less kind-hearted nobles started refering to the area of the city as the perfume district.   Eventually the refugees either left or were absorbed into the city, but the name stuck even long after the area had been cleaned up. Outsider hearing the name assumed the area was known for perfume, and some residents took advantage of that and started to produce the product. It soon drew many that specialized in the craft, and now the district is know for its perfume making.    
The Slums
While every city has a place where thier poor congregate, Twin Suns Slum district is not relegates to one of two places. Instead each of the district has it's own area for the downtrodden. The can be found in the streets behind the shops of the Market Place District, in neighborhood in the resdential district. Under the Piers in the Docs section, and even in the tucked off alleyways in the civic district.
