The world has just recovered from a large number of wars, but random sackings still occur. Territories are fought over until a large enough force claims the area. You believed that your city was large enough to ensure some safety. The last war was 50 years ago, and most of the human, halfling, half-orc, half-elf, and orc races were wiped out. It is more rare to see these races around. Dwarves and Elves have taken control of most of the cities, with elves taking the wooden cities and dwarves taking the castles and underground cities. The current city you were in was Aeddcot Stronghold, a dwarven castle surrounded by a large city. Each of the stone buildings were built into the ground of an old war field where magic missiles and other horrific attacks left the area as a crater. The streets were built above the buildings, and small fences marked each opening. This left the castle as a behemoth above the ground. The only structure made with any wood, due to the ancient human fort, which served as the royal stables.
