The youngest of the three cities of Caloth, Kynewal was settled by people fleeing from the iron grip of the Drakenvos Dominion and those running from the warlords of the Vermillion Expanse. They came together and built a fortress to defend themselves from both enemies. With the help of a clan of allied Stone Giants, the walls of Kynewal were built to withstand the harshest of sieges. When Athos Caloth began his rebellion against the Dominion, the already hardened people of Kynewal came to his aid early on in his campaign, providing him a powerful fortress and staging ground. In the present day, Kynewal is a city of industry and martial prowess and stands as the shield and spear of the kingdom's southern border.
The architecture is function over form. While elegant in their own way, the majority of buildings in the city are simple and robust. Homes and structures are primarily built from stone and are often adorned with the iconography of horses and knights in full plate. On the south wall of the city, two paintings stretch up and across the stonework: one depicts a great battle outside the walls of the city, and the other depicts a victorious sunrise over a blackened landscape, with a soldier holding the crests of Kynewal and the kingdom of Caloth high.
