Solista - Age of Syzygy
Brana Hawk lies within Orynn’s proclaimed boundaries, but it acts like an independent city-state and gets away with. As Solista’s largest port city, Brana Hawk sits on the delta of the Fel River where it empties into Brana Bay. Brana Hawk is a melting pot of all species, creeds, and religions. Ruled by an oligarchy made of equal parts nobility and guild masters, the nobility maintain the militia and are charged with upholding the law and protecting the city; a tough task since Brana Hawk has no walls or fortifications and is divided into districts: University, Harbor, Noble, Guild, Market, East Bank, and West Bank districts. The guild masters control lawmaking, and manage the city’s economy. Brana Hawk’s banks and counting houses are considered the safest and most reliable way to manage large amounts of wealth.
The Academy of Alchema and Arcana is the core of the University district and houses the largest known library of written works including collections of elven, dwarven, and planar scripts. Entry to the University is restricted and admission is controlled by the headmasters.
