Ferra is an old city, settled by the Gealts. Although it is not as old as Fort Resolute, the city is still old and populous. With its place at the headwaters of a navigable river, Ferra grew into a thriving trade center, acting as a hub between highway and waterway.
Ferra followed the Shadow Lance during the Crusade of Light. In time, the Alliance of the Sun defeated her and seemingly purged her of her great evils. Her patron Samael slept.
Following the Crusade of Light, Ferra became a mercenary kingdom of considerable power. The war between her and Charystos was long and convoluted. Ferra was the first major power fall to Thule, solidifying Charystos as the preeminent power of Endhaven.
After Thule's abdication, Fort Resolute became the capital of the Griffon Empire. The Emperor was unhappy there. He wanted a great city for his own, more like Charystos or Rhakotis. He ordered a massive building program in Ferra, renaming it Ferra Nea.
The city grew magnificent under the Griffon Emperors, with the empire building works as wonderful as those seen in any other city. Her defenses were built both high and deep. By all expert accounts, the city was impregnable.
The Wars of Law and Chaos marked the end of the age of empires. The Griffon empire succumb to its own people, ripping itself apart.
Samael reappeared, uniting the goblins under his banner. The goblins fought and conquered well. The remains of the Griffon Empire formed the Griffon League, based in Ferra Nea. The Feral Nation attacked that city, and to the horror of the civilized world, overcame her great defenses. The Griffon League rename itself to the Border League.
Several years ago, the Border League mounted a major campaign to retake Ferra Nea. They seized the city for a year, but were unable to hold it. With great losses, the Border League retreated.
Ferra Nea is a temperate land with distinct seasons. The land is dominated by decidous trees of many types, such as poplar, elm, ash, pine, and oak. A large river races down many small falls, then forms a navigable river that runs south to the Savage Sea. The land is dominated by gentle hills. There is relatively little wildlife as the city and farms dominate this region.
The landscape is dominated by vast slaved run farms and factories.
