The capital of the Basilean Empire, Triar is a city placed along three rivers and dominated by a nobility that claimed relationship to the gods. Triar benefited from the iron mines it controlled near the source of its rivers, as well as trade from the coast. The early Republic of Triar slowly expanded, becoming the most powerful of the states governing the Veronii. A series of wars saw the rise of a military tradition in Triar that was second to no other human society. This would be put to the test during the Elven Wars, when Elves crossed the sea and attempted to claim land in the Verolands. They were pushed back, but their curse would change the land forever.
