The Price of Generosity
Concord, “the City of Spires,” is a blend of high elf spires, woodlands, carved dwarven holds, and halfling burrows. It’s a garden-like city, and in places it is more like wilderness than a city. Elves, dwarves, and other nonhumans outnumber humans here. The Dragon Emperor, Elf Queen, and Dwarf King share an uneasiness with Concord’s racial blend, but allow it to exist for their own reasons. The racial harmony may be due to the fact that the city contains magic which enables alliances to endure here that would fail elsewhere. Ostensibly it is a part of the Dragon Empire, and is ruled, at least in name, by an Imperial governor.
