Ways of the Seven
Falconcrest is a trade city located at the edge of Falconhead Ridge, near the Falls of Aldmach. Initially founded as a military outpost by the Valuan Empire , the city rapidly expanded into a thriving urban center as commerce with the Darjii was established along the River Laun. The city is home to an eyrie of tamed griffons, as well as the Starfell Academy. Since the expiration of the Treaty of Sergha, Falconcrest become a largely independent city-state, while maintaining trade relations between the Darjii and the Valuan Empire. Falconcrest has been able to maintain independence only via the funds it generates through trade with the dwarves, the Darjii, and Endamay. Falconcrest’s primary exports are tobacco (known as tumbac by the Darjii) and wares traded to them by the Darjii, which they in turn trade to the dwarves and the Valuan empire. The majority of Falconcrest’s commerce comes from acting as a conduit for trade between the Darjii and Valua. Beyond tobacco, most of what the Darjii export through Facloncrest are artifacts of culture: pottery, textiles, art and spice.
