The Age of Man
The city of Tillith was built upon the ruins of Shaelas Tiraleth, a Feyspire that once traveled many realms. Nearly 200 years ago the Feyspire appeared while a large force of Dragonborn slavers was nearby, and met the same grisly fate that most of their enemies did. Since they could not be certain that the spire wouldn’t eventually return to its homeland, the Dragonborn sacked and burned it in the course of a single day.
The core of the city lies in a large clearing within the Tillian forest. While the core city is primarily permanent buildings, the markets and vendors are a constantly shifting series of temporary stalls formed of colorful fabric stretched between the trees.
The forests around the city not only provide wood for craft and trade, but also hold a host of rare plants that draw students of herbalism and botany from across the realm. The Tillian Society of Apothecaries is based here, and has advanced medical science dramatically. All major cities, and even most of the smaller ones have physicians trained here.
