Sarenrae’s Lambent Citadel
The city of Solku is located near the western mountains of Katapesh (the Barrier Wall mountains), where it is relatively cut off from the rest of the nation. The settlement is frequently besieged by gnoll slavers, and thus rests within a tall wall, though this does not always provide enough protection to keep the town’s people safe. Today the town is guarded by a small band of paladins of Sarenrae known as the Dawn Vigil who prepare for the rumored war ahead, as gnolls amass in the mountains under the banner of Noor, the Red Sultana, who has her eyes set on Solku as the starting point of a massive campaign eastward.
Solku is the second-largest city in land of Katapesh and attracts many traders and travelers on their way to the capitol. Over 10,000 people call Solku home, but the number of residents swells and ebbs with the season. During fall when overland travel seems more appealing the population swells down to 2,000. The traders coming east across the Mwangi Expanse reach Solku exhausted and grateful for a waypost on the way to Katapesh. Solku also attracts pilgrims intent on visiting Sarenrae’s Lambent Citadel.
Though large, the city is well governed with low crime rates and mostly lawful populace. Lord Hazic Kel-Kalaar is the ruler of the city, holds a reputation for being a levelheaded man who thinks long term and makes decisions based on keeping Solku secure and prosperous. Lady Chanar Cynore is the head of an order of Sarenrae’s paladins supporting the city.
