A Storm on the Horizon
Arkangelsk was founded by Prince Izsak Androsonov in 13A135, as a way to cut down on river pirate raids on the Capital of Karadania.
Arkangelsk stands as one of only two crossings from the Nordrejur Lands, and the Empire of Regeloth via the River Tazania. It serves primarily as a Trade City, and Produces ships along with harvesting marine items from the River Tazania.
During 16A20, a group of individuals made their way to Arkangelsk where they attempted to stop an execution, this ultimately failed, however, the two people that were captured escaped causing an event called the Blunder at the Fort. With the escape of the two party-members, the Commander of the Hellknights in Arkangelsk, Edrin Yamor, was removed from her position and replaced by another Hellknight Commander. This Commander started The Purge which has forced the Varrangoin (and specifically the Ferryman) from Arkangelsk, across the River and to The Crossing.
