New Cracow is the capital city of the Kingdom of the Eagle. It is located on the banks of the Vis river and is one of the biggest cities south of the Southern Mountains.
The Inherited Empire may have wonders of elven architecture, but New Cracow is the work of human hands and human craftsmanship. There is nothing more impressive than that.
The city is governed by a council elected by all inhabitants for a five-year term. When elected the council members choose a mayor from among themselves who is responsible for overseeing the operations of all of the city's institutions. Additionally, the mayor acts as the city's representative in front of the King.

New Cracow was founded shortly after the first humans arrived in Terra Nova. It started as a small camp lead by Martin Romski, later the first king of the Kingdom of the Eagle, who was offering people shelter, food and protection. As time went on more and more people were moving into the camp. In just a couple of years the camp has grown into a small town and first more permanent structures were built.
The development of New Cracow has gotten faster after the proclamation of the Kingdom of the Eagle, of which New Cracow became the capital. Just a few years later it became a bustling city and there were almost no signs of the old camp.
