The Lanvernite Succession
The great cosmopolitan capital of Lanverness, Greatminster is one of the wealthiest, best-built cities in the entire Realm. With a population of 30,000, it is home to many universities and academies, workshops and forges, banks and trading companies. Greatminster has stood for hundreds of years as the seat of government, and the Three Ministries of Coin, State and War take up large portions of the city.
Under Bartleby Sax’s rule, the city has suffered. Garbage piles up for weeks on once-glittering streets. All new construction has stopped, save Sax’s personal residences. Unemployment is up, and beggars line the edges of the markets.
