Aleria and Suriax are sister cities separated by the Therion River. They are connected by two bridges, one connecting at the center of each city and one connecting at Merchant’s Square, an area open between the two cities. At the center of Aleria stands a massive park and gazebo, often used for weddings and other events of note. Just off from the park is the tree of the healing clerics. They are best known for their magic which enables elves and non-elves to bind their life forces together in a permanent wedding ceremony.
Aleria is also well known for its theater, where impressive productions draw visitors from many neighboring lands. Homes in Aleria and Suriax are often nestled in large trees that reach up to two hundred feet in height.
Suriax is well known for its fighter tournaments, such as the Tournament of Fire. It draws visitors from the far reaches of the continent. Suriaxians love to gamble and race marenpaie hounds in their large racetrack, near the southern wall of the city. Other areas of importance include the Temple of Venerith, located just outside the walls around the palace grounds, and the Arrow’s Quill Tavern, run by Bryce Kentalee.
