Ostium is a fortified city standing on the east bank of the Golden River. It is connected to a fortified bridge to a citadel on the west bank to handle border crossings from Ilefain to Canstice. Ostium is a crossroads trading town, so it is always bustling with caravans entering and leaving its walls.

  • The central market: An open area marketplace filled with many stalls selling all sorts of goods, including crystal perfume bottles, magical potions, and spellcasting components of great rarity and power. Known locally as the Fishyard, this mazelike market always has fish on sale and even in the depths of winter, ice fishermen bring their wares to the stalls.
