Stars and their courses
This city contains the bulk of non traditional magic users in this region of the world. Sometimes they are washouts from Arcana, or just want to learn magic on their own terms.
These folk seek inspiration from the elf ruins. These ruins were build during the human/elf war thousands of years ago as ramparts against the invading humans. Now they sit as a reminder of those dark times.
The city itself is built within the ruins, but many of the other ruins are not explored due to various dangers.
The city contains a small military presence but they do not bother the locals.
