Rise of the Runelords
Korvosa is the largest city in Varisia, and used to be the capital of Chelish Varisia.2 It now serves as the seat of one of three city-states that claim independent authority over their individual holdings in the region. Though its citizens and traditions have strong ties to the nation of Cheliax, with many of its people tracing their ancestry directly to servants of the Empire, the city’s location at the mouth of the Jeggare River and the presence of a highly-defensible harbor have contributed to the establishment of Korvosa as a primary hub for trade. Various cultures and peoples can be found within the city’s walls as goods move in and out of its gates.
The events of the Rise of the Runelord campaign take place BEFORE the events of the Curse of the Crimson Throne campaign. This means that the heroes of Korvosa have yet to rise.
