A note on time in Glorwing by it's creator:
Cornflower wrote:
Although, due to the extreme fluctuations in the interdimensional space-time continuum, you shouldn't assume that time is linear, that time runs at the same pace regardless of geography/gender/race/temper/love. That's all just superstition. Glorwing is a place where suddenly a city or a person can appear/disappear due to a fluctuation in the interdimensional space-time continuum (aka "rift").

The official timescale is time as it passes by definition in the Kingdom and has nothing to do with time as you and I percieve it in game.

Or short: If you're looking for logic and consistency in a world where people have wings, converse with animals or fight dragons, you're up for a great disappointment.

    170 - Current Year

Cities on the mainland

* Port Sunrise is the capital of the Kingdom of Glorwing. Currently is the largest and eastern-most city in the Kingdom and contains the Palace of the royal family (formerly the Lumens line, briefly the Sennalds, and once again the Lumens line), the main temple to the Sun Goddess, docks, Queensguard and Sun Guard Headquarters, the Engineer's Guild Headquarters, and Vigil's Keep, the Order Hall of the Praetorians..
Current monarch is Queen Cassandra Lumens.

* Blacksilver is a primarily dwarven settlement in the cold northern region of Wilwarin. This city lies in the midst of a mountain range mined and excavated by the dwarves who came through the Rift. It is an independent nation run by the First Axe and houses a fighting Arena, the Stone Sentinels, and the HordeQuarters.
Current First Axe is TBA

* Dry Town was originally a fertile settlement until the rift opened and drained the area rivers and water supply. Today, Dry Town is a desert community in the western region of Wilwarin with a land route to Dun Ammon. As part of the Kingdom of Glorwing, it is patrolled by Sun Guards and contains a barracks, merchants, and taverns.

* The Delta is a mosquito-infested swamp southwest of Port Sunrise along the coast. A part of the Kingdom of Glorwing, it is run by the local mayor. It contains a tavern, a boarding inn, and an outdoor communal area.
Current Mayor is Glebur Stemen

* Darkwoods is an elven community in the forests northwest of Port Sunrise. It is home to the Quiet God temple, Hostel, and the Astalderea Headquarters. The Darkwoods are led by the Elven Council and its Lord.
Current Lord is Anen Tane

* Eagle's Nest, the furthest north of the Kingdom holdings, is a city wrapped in snow year 'round. It is home to many small shops and a tavern. It is also the only land route to Arbar, the city of mages.

* Crescent Bay, the youngest settlement, is also a part of the Kingdom of Glorwing. It is home to the Cornerhouse Inn, the Halls of Erudition, and also contains an outdoor communal area.
Current Mayor is Chia Sensen

* Dun-Ammon was transported in it's entirely to the lands of Wilwarin following the simultaneous miscasting of a spell by many mages in an effort to protect the city. It is the furthest city to the southwest and is a desert community run by the Sultan and his bodyguard, the Nightblades. It contains the Cabal of the Grey Sisters, the Temple of the War Triad, underground ruins of the old city, and many merchants. There is a land route to Dry Town to the north, and another to New Lyrun to the south.
Current Sultan is Akar al'Dorib

* Arbar is a small village that lies roughly a days walk from Eagle Nest at the foot of the Winterwolf Mountains and on the shore of a frozen lake. Extremely tolerant of mages, this city was teleported from this plane and only returned after the Great War.

* New Lyrun is a recently discovered city on the coast south of Dun-Ammon. Not much is known about this city at this time other than it is growing quickly as trade lanes, over land and sea, open to it.
Current Vizier is Davram Vantran

* The Barony of Byrne was recently liberated from the rule of the lich, Daithi Byrne, by a band of adventurers. Once liberated, the nobles named one of their liberators as their new governor, though they remained on the ruling council. This changed when Byrne fell after the Evening Plague. Now, rebuilding, the people are once again led by a Baron, and enjoy the protection of the Crown as a vassal state.
Current Baron is Ventrian Byrne

Cities accessible by Sea

* Raven's Call is an independent city-state run by the Commission which lies on an island off the south-eastern tip of the continent. A bustling commerce center, it contains several shops and taverns.
Current Commission heads are TBA

* Vermillion Bay is a resort island discovered and maintained by a merchant consortium. Sandy beaches, exotic animals, and tales of pirates lend this area a charm and beauty like no other.
Owned and operated by Clarice Piaget, Vermillion Ltd.

* Port Heany is the main city on the island empire of Eorna. Eorna was largely spared in the great war as the gods had no powerbase upon the island. The Sun Church established a temple in the town of Port Heany but spiritually the people looked towards the Druid Queen, a person not unlike the High Priestess of the Sun Church. Few ever left the island and the first mention of it came from Raido Stormraven. Ruled by an Emperor/Empress, it was home to Wolf Clan, Bear Clan, the Forest of the Druid Queen, and Port Heany. Port Heany was the Main town upon the island containing a bounty office, a temple, and a tavern with exotic drinks found no place else. The Royal Hold was home to the current ruler.
Current Empress is Empress Marshtola
