The capital of the Kingdom of Vesper, Riverlake sits squarely in the center of Magna’s Lawn, where the Magna River meets Quiet Flume Lake. King Simon Rex IV resides in Riverlake, which serves as the center of trade for the entire kingdom. The River of Refinement typically stops their march here, dropping off the majority of their coin and allowing it to be spread through trade. The city itself has dozens of major trade routes into and out of the city, going to many of the towns and villages that dot the Lawn’s landscape, as well as back to the mountains. A few even make their way to Aurora, by way of several rivers that reach all the way to the Sea of Horses.
