Full Map of the Norlangarth EmpireEdit

The village of Rulid is right on the northern edge of the human realm of the Underworld. Directly to the south is Zakkaria, a town fortified by long castle walls and over five times the size of Rulid. It's situated in the middle of a flat field with no nearby lakes or rivers, so fresh water comes via well. Nearly all the roads and buildings are constructed of a dusty red sandstone, and most residents wear some shade of red clothing. Zakkaria's biggest facility is the central grounds, where various events such as speeches, musical and stage performances, and swordfighting tournaments are held. The town's current liege is Kelgam Zakkarite.

Further south of Zakkaria is Centoria, the largest city within the lands of humanity. Over 20,000 citizens reside within its perfectly circular walls, encompassing a diameter of ten kilors. Within that circle, barriers known as Everlasting Walls split the city into four parts in an unusual X-shaped configuration. The four quadrants are called North Centoria, East Centoria, South Centoria, and West Centoria, and they served as the capitals of the four empires that preside over the vast human realm.

At the very center of the city is the Axiom Church's massive, white Central Cathedral tower. Its pinnacle is so high that it can barely be seen, and looming walls hide the square grounds of the church from sight. It is from this cathedral that the Everlasting Walls splitting the city spread outward.

The Axiom Church is the organization presiding over all of humanity. In addition to its civil posts of priests and senators, there are military officials known as Integrity Knights. These knights are tasked with maintaining order and serve as inspiration to the training swordfighters, who look up to them. The students at the Imperial Swordcraft Academy in North Centoria train hard from dawn to dusk in the hopes of one day joining these illustrious few.
