Crusaders of the Keep
Situated on a rising, defensible hill that falls away in a rocky cliff on its south side where the Chionthar flows, the city of Elturel rests atop a cliff that dominates the River Chionthar. Elturel is the farming center of the Fields of the Dead and thrives on the trade that passes through its domain.
Elturel is the capital of Elturgard and ruled by the High Observer of Torm. A stout stone wall encircles the city, pierced by two gates, and open on the river side.
The city’s most distinguishing feature is a brilliant magical light that hovers above it, known as Amaunator’s Gift; although it was unknown if this was truly a blessing of Amaunator. The orb produces light that is painful to undead, and could be seen from virtually anywhere within Elturgard.
