Jetsam Village, map by Dyson Logos
This is a tiny dot on the map, only recorded because it houses a wizard’s tower and the wizard sent a formal warning to any and all rail companies to keep their contraptions out of sight of his tower. It is said that several Black Sash thugs were sent from the Khatovar Detective Agency under the command a sergeant sorcerer but they were never seen again.
Briar Keep, map by Dyson Logos
Briar Keep is a federal fortress, erected during the barely contained mage-feuds via federally contracted dwarven artisans. Through magic and dwarven labor, the keep was erected in less than a year, which was record setting at the time. It is now home to the 3rd Gryphon Air Cav, a Lieutenant-Colonel Sorcerer and a small family of dwarven masons and miners who make repairs and mine coal for the local rail companies.
Dolem’s Spire, map by Dyson Logos
Dolem’s Spire is the northern seat of the federal government out west. It is ruled by a powerful cabal of arch-mages who make a mockery of democracy through corruption and election fixing through arcane and financial means. The mage-feuds did not become the mage-wars because of diplomatic efforts that were finalized in Dolem’s Spire but it led to the mages weeding out the trouble-makers and becoming a powerful, united force that is now a potent faction. They are said to be putting together their own rail company, The 8 Circle Co.
