The Rise of Karzoug
Magnimar is the nearest large city to Sandpoint and its feudal master. Known as the “city of monuments” for its ancient ruins, Magnimar is most famous for its iconic Irespan bridge
Magnimar is a large city located on the southwestern coast of Varisia where the Yondabakari River empties into the Varisian Gulf. The city is surrounded by the mostly inhospitable Mushfens. The city itself is defined by two colossal landmarks which predate modern civilization by thousands of years or more. The Irespan is an ancient Thassilonian ruin, the easternmost end of a giant bridge which has now crumbled into the sea. This enormous relic stretched from Magnimar’s other most noticeable feature, the three-hundred-foot tall cliff which cuts the city in two known as the Seacleft.
Magnimar is ruled by both a Lord Mayor (presently Haldmeer Grobaras) and a “Council of Ushers”, a body of one hundred and seventeen civic leaders. The precise nature of the balance of responsibilities and power between them is fluid and contentious.
