Culture


Calori's population is separated into two greatly different social classes. The oppressively rich and the desperately poor.

Calori is known as the “cradle of thought” for its monuments, churches and buildings. The best-known site and crowning architectural jewel of Calori is the Sacro Bagno di Calori, the cathedral where the royalty of Canstice is baptized and crowned.

City Layout


Calori's most notable feature is the Lover's Wind tunnel that allows large ships though the first hill and into the city harbor.

There are seven major districts; the noble, the entertainment, the scholarly, the harbor, the commoner, the worker’s, and the traveler’s districts.

Sapientiam is the city's university and wizard academy.

Calori also has on of the most extensive city undergrounds of any city in Nora. Vast and cavernous, these underground passages were made to allow water into the land without flooding the city. Mostly made of catwalks over the sea floor, the underground is riddled with oozes and other dangers.

Crime


The city not only famous for its art and architecture, but also for the Orchid, the infamous crime syndicate that retains a choke-hold on the populace. The leader of the syndicate is known as the il'Nero.

It seems the only inner city organization that has managed to elude the Orchid's grasp are the halfling dockworkers and their minotaur servants.
