City of Spire
Old capital of the Kingdom of Merthiorn
Spire's historySpire is believed to be one of the oldest major settlements in the Haan Archipelago standing today, with some records dating of more than 3400 years ago.
Traces, signs and remains of roughly concentrical walls suggest that the city has been fortified for many centuries, with the walled area being expanded and upgraded alongside the city. Having run through many through its hitory, the city received its current name in 2524 E.Alz, commemorating the coronation of Queen Spire of Merthiorn who was 22 at the time. Around the decade of 2920 E.Alz, at the height of their power, the Merthiornite monarchy decided to move their capital with the express purpose of showing their power by building a city in the mountains. Goldwaste was completed in 2961 E.Alz and with it all of the monarchy and most of the aristocracy leaving for it, Spire lost most of its high status, and reverted to more of a trade hub coastal city. During 2998 E.Alz, a flood covered the neighbouring town of Deep Cue Garn. Many of the survivors took refuge in Spire, raising the activity of the city.
The High Rust in 3014 E.Alz destroyed the city of Goldwaste and its people. In just a couple of months, Spire received hundreds of the wounded and dying, as well as almost all of the unscathed ones. While the city would have had a chance of restoring its status as the kingdom's capital after the Rust, it was replaced by the City of Birdland as Merthiorn fell and the Kingdom of Thaur took its place.
