The free city of Bloodshire is the largest city on Erdael. It is also the most culturally diverse city, as it has been the home of refugees and merchants for thousands of years.
Bloodshire sits on several different trade routes, and serves as the economic and cultural center of Cambria. Because of this, every emperor, warlord, king, or tribal chief worth his salt has tried to conquer it at one time or another. This constant struggle for control is what gives the city its name.
