Azora City is the capital city of the Azora plains. It is known as the city of the horse lords. The ancient people of the plains were nomadic and used horses to follow and hunt the cattle, buffalo, and other animals of the plains. The city was founded by the empire as the first major permanent settlement in the region.
The city is circular with wide main cross roads cutting it into quadrants. The city has numerous Artesian wells and fountains to supply water to the inhabitants. The central capital building is a sprawling single level building with open archways and many courtyards. Large statues and pillars built from imported red marble and burgundy tapestries with Azora’s horse sigil decorate the otherwise spartan building leading to it being called the Crimson Palace. The palace is home to the ruler of Azora, Duke Barras Lucien, and his wife Josephine.
