The Myrnmaros Rift
Crosswind was originally founded as a simple meeting hall built as a safe haven to address grievances for the Horse Clans of the Windswept Valley . Over time it grew into large city, and eventually a seat of military resistance before it’s absorption into the Imperium.
Buidling the crossroads of the Imperial Highways here was partially a way to control the Horse Clans by the Emperor at the time. It brought money as well as military through this historic place of meeting on a regular basis, and thus kept the denizens complacent.
Crosswind is an important trading hub, as well as resting spot for merchants or travelers heading from one major city to another.
This city is part of the Imperium.
