    The Shimmering City of Eylea
    By the general standards of the Ffenargh, Eylea is a lively, vibrant place, but to any outsider, its grey, damp walls, and lethargic air will be depressing indeed. Much of the atmosphere of Eylea is imparted by its inhabitants, most of whom are servants of one kind or another who will be seen dawdling about their tasks. The Praefecture of the palace and the Officers of Clavados' militia will also be seen around the place.

    Although not as unpleasant as the rest of the Ffenargh, Eylea is a drab and depressing place. Mist lies thick on the ground, forming grotesque swirls and eddies whenever it is disturbed by the wind or peoples' passage. Eylea's crumbling stonework is covered in ancient lichens, and its once fine, stained-glass windows are now cracked and dirty. Gloom and despondency permeate the island, most of it emanating from its inhabitants. Only Eylea's privileged few seem unaware of its decline, but to an outsider, it is obvious that Eylea has seen better days.

    Occupants of The Shimmering City of Eylea
    Eylea's ruling elite comprises the three Lords Spiritual (or Clerical Court) —Spiritual Lord Siranush: , Spiritual Lord Waldegrave and Spiritual Lord Tyrwitt. The Lord-Bailiff Clavados serves as the command of Eylea forces and usually follows a more secular order.
    These individuals have been given authority over the Ffrenargh by the Pale Kingdom.

    The authority of Clavados and the Lords Spiritual is absolute here. Responsible to the Lords, and one step up from the lowly commoners, are the Praefecture of the temple and the Officers of the Guard. Although better fed and clothed than the commoners, these two groups display much of the cynical aura of the place, and treat each other with disdain.

    The remaining inhabitants are commoners. Most are servants of one kind or another who will be seen dawdling about their tasks. They range from pale-skinned stable hands and scullions wearing threadbare, ill-fitting livery, through slovenly cooks, maids and stewards, to gaunt, arrogant, grey-robed clerks who keep the records for the priests. The others are surly men-at-arms in unpolished armor who generally slouch untidily about the place.
