Empire of Lightrune
The Capital District
Once known as the kingdom of Lightrune, the Capital District is the nucleus upon which the Empire was built. Besides the city of Runehold, the Capital District is largely one of the breadbaskets of the Empire, with fertile fields and lush orchards. Abundant rivers provide easy transportation of food stuffs, as well as irrigation for crops. It has been at least a century since a drought has managed to be severe enough to affect the fields of the Capital District.
Sites of Note
Runehold: The Imperial Capital and the most populous city in the Empire. Runehold houses a teeming horde of bureaucrats and officials devoted to keeping the Empire in one piece, while at the same time profiting themselves as much as possible. In recent times, the amount of effort devoted towards the latter has increased and the former is increasingly being left to the wayside, except for token efforts so the bureaucrats can justify their continued employment. Runehold houses a number of impressive pieces of architecture, including the Grand Cathedral and the Imperial Palace.
