The Root of the World
This city of towers is the home to one of the largest cathedrals to the platinum dragon ever built by mortal craft, home of the Shield of the Platinum One. Surrounded on three sides by a crescent of pitch and sand with a swampy forest extending in the Southern and Western directions, Engelgang would be difficult to attack under any normal circumstances. Any force foolish enough to make the attempt would first need to overcome the kobold tribes living in the marshlands and the fear of reprisals from dragonkind.
Unbeknownst to many, the founding of Engelgang was decreed by a mighty dragon prophet and has been considered protected by dragons ever since. Most realize, however, that the city lies at the center of the eternal dragon burial ground, suffused with their ancient magic and power. Dragons often visit the region to pay respects to departed friends and foes; and, sorcerers are often born here. The towering buildings of Engelgang belie the limitations of the territorial boundaries of the city determined in unspoken history by the architects of its foundation.
