Saldean is the capital city of the Turath province. The city was built up around the remaining infrastructure of one of the greatest cities of the ancient Bael Turath empire. As one of the central cities of Bael Turath the architecture is the baroque and gaudy style of the ancient tiefling oligarchy. Copper from the now exhausted mine the city was founded around is heavily utilized in the original buildings. A building known as the Copper Keep serves as the capital building of the city. The keep is a modern building build around the central structure of a great ancient copper plated tower, now green with age, that was once the home of an important group of tiefling mages. Duke Raoul Burgundy rules the city of Saldean and the province of Turath from the Copper Keep.
The city is known for its progressive and innovative technology and industry even utilizing some of the steam powered technologies of the dwarves. It is home to some of the best artisans in all of Darunia. The city is also fairly socially progressive and is fairly accepting of the high percentage of tieflings that still inhabit the city from the days of Bael Turath.
