Aldemor, situated between the Laughing Sea to the west and the river Ruhelyn to the east, was once considered one of Vastrea’s most prominent cities. Though it still holds nominal importance to the kingdom, much of its former glory has been lost, stripped away by misfortune and a poor reputation.
Most of Aldemor’s residents are poor Vastreans unable to leave the city. The lucky ones find work with the merchants and nobles, while the rest either turn to crime or the charity of the Ersinan Mendicants to keep themselves fed. The city is sharply divided between the wealthy populace and the destitute common folk, and the slums are often referred to as a cancerous tumor that must be excised in order for Aldemor to thrive again. Visitors never stay long unless circumstances force them to, and the city sees fewer and fewer new residents each year.
A few wood elves and vernlings live near the city’s wealthier streets, or close to the woodlands beyond the walls. Their populations have waned over the years, however, and it may not be long before Aldemor becomes a purely human settlement—which would make it the only major Vastrean city to achieve (or fall to) such homogeneity.
