Of Kings and Dragons
This fortified town is the northernmost outpost of civilization in the Thanelands. It’s the final respite for those hoping to travel north over the frozen arctic wastes of the Crown of the World to the continent of Tian Xia. The desolate place is a fortress, built and reinforced by generations of Linnorm Kings. Set atop a small rise, its upper towers overlook the flat, lifeless tundra that stretches to the horizon every direction. The garrison is made up of the dishonored sent here as a punishment, and those seeking to forget and escape their past. In the dark of winter when the cold, howling wind whistles endlessly through the battlements, many in Turvik turn heavily to drink. A considerable proportion of the supplies sent to Turvik are alcoholic in nature. A few Tians have remained in Turvik after their journeys, the most noticeable being the Marasawa family, who work as translators teaching the languages of both Tian Xia and Avistan to travelers.
