"Ocean's fate."


Feranon is an expansive city-state that stretches across the Strait of Makiot, off the coast of the Northeast Coastal Steppes in the Wild Northeast. With its unique tiered structure reminiscent of Anenon in Azmare, It is a shining testament to Azmarean ingenuity.

Its distinctive design comprises a central island city surrounded by concentric rings that rise and fall with the tides. This remarkable engineering feat allows Feranon to adapt to the rhythm of the ocean, creating a dynamic and ever-changing cityscape. The outer ring, a formidable fortified harbor, connects to the central city via a network of roadways, footpaths, and underwater supports, facilitating the smooth movement of people and goods.


Feranon is a republic led by a nautarch and elected officials who represent and exercise administrative, judicial, and legislative power according to the rule of law.


Feranon's economy thrives on its marine resources. The city's innovative design is tailored for maritime prosperity, and one of its most distinct features is its tidal farms. Partitioned from the outer rings, these areas fill with seawater during high tide and are used to farm everything from seaweeds to shellfish. Meanwhile, imbued with breathing potions and protective charms, deep-sea gatherers collect pearl, coral, minerals, and other rare resources from the depths of the ocean for sale or barter.

The craftsfolk of Feranon’s shipwright enclaves construct vessels tailored to navigate the open seas and the city's waterways. Many of these ships are imbued with minor enchantments to withstand storms or move swifter with the currents.

The Azure Bazaar is a sprawling marketplace that draws traders from all over Praetoria. Here, aquatic artistry shines, and merchants sell shimmering fabrics dyed with deep-sea inks, jewelry crafted from coral and pearls, and intricate sculptures carved from driftwood and bone.

Feranon mints one of the many variations of Azmarean currency that serve as the primary medium of exchange in the Wild Northeast.



The city's residents include a rich blend of races, most of whom originally hail from Anenon and its outlying area. The largest populations include:

  • Azmarean humans

  • Marine gnomes

  • Bluehair minotaurs

  • Cobalt orcs

  • Ironwood goblins


Feranon’s citizenry primarily worships Xelia, Goddess of Seas and Storms. Many also pay tribute to the tides that control the rise and fall of their city’s concentric rings, as reflected in the local dialect and phrases such as “praise the tides” (gods willing), “good tides” (greetings or farewell; also good luck), and “tides take you” (a curse).


Feranon is a city that follows the rhythm of the tides, which shapes the daily lives and traditions of its citizens. Its aesthetic is undeniably marine-influenced. Buildings are often adorned with mosaics of seashells and carvings that echo a reverence for the sea. Shades of blue dominate the cityscape and reflect the hues of the surrounding ocean. The city's central plaza boasts a massive water fountain that depicts Xelia dancing among the waves while surrounded by fish, dolphins, and other marine life.

Proverbs and tales of the sea abound in Feranon's literature. In open courtyards, performances recount tales of legendary oceanic voyages and epic battles against sea monsters. Music is dominated by haunting melodies of the lute and harp, often accompanied by rhythmic drumming that recalls the crashing of waves.

Philosophers draw parallels between the city's adaptability and the need for personal growth and change. Libraries and oratory halls frequently host debates on the nature of tides as they relate to life's unpredictability, which promotes an ethos of adaptability and resilience.

The ocean’s rich bounty is evident in every dish. Seaweed broths, pastries, and delicacies like tidal crab are staples. Many meals are paired with salted fruit beverages or deep-sea wines fermented using marine yeasts.

In Feranon’s Tidalring Coliseum, battle mages find themselves in an arena with segmented tiered seating and a partitioned floor with sections that—independent from one another—rise and fall with the tide and the waves beneath them.
