Roxregal is a large city of 135,000, making it the most populous on the continent. It is home not only to the monarchy of the Northern Kingdom but the Doheagan Religion as well. Wealthy and poor, nobles and criminals, the corrupt and the pure live side by side. Criminal syndicates, powerful merchants, military leaders, and sailors from the Eastern Ocean all come to Roxregal in search of fortune, adventure, and love. Some find a home in the poverty stricken streets of The Deluge, some discover virtue and power in the Emissarium, some just make their way in the working class districts of North and South Brishan. 

Founded in 834 AF in the years after the Corpsemarch Wars, Roxregal began as a small village beside a massive waterfall in the Chelsea River called the Great Falls. After Hadervin the Great unified the duchies of the Northern Kingdom, the dwarves of Hubnuic Hold and the half-elves of Tidestone rebuilt the city into a monument of cooperation after the Buring. 

The capital city of the Northern Kingdom, sits on the Chelsea River overlooking the great Roxterre Forest to the east and the southern-most tip of the Duchy of Azure Loch to the west.  Roxregal is the most important political city in the Kingdom.  Not only is is it the home of the monarch, it has embassies from each of Tri-Barony of Tidestone, each of the regions of the Northern Kingdom, and the Jarl Clans of the Sky Peaks Region.  The Col Insanlar, the powerful tiefling oligarchy of Sultans that rule the Deliverer Barrens and the Insanlar Syndicate, have a prominent place at court. Above them all sits the powerful Church of the New Gods and its archbishop, Javaar Faucheux, who rules behind the throne from the grand Basilica of St. Johannas. 

Roxregal is a marvel of dwarven and human architecture.  The Chelsea River runs through the city creating waterfalls and waterways, some large enough for even the most massive oceanic sailing vessels.  Hadervin Keep, also called the Grey Palace, is the monument to the recovery from the Burning.  King Hadervin the Great launched a massive rebuilding after the catastrophe, unified the duchies under a single king, and built the castle with the help of leaders from across Sycharia.  The city maintains a standing army of more than 2,000 troops, but most are serving at the front of the war with Tidestone. The city guard and the Gueran Royal Guard maintain order in the city.

Additionally, Roxregal is known for its bustling marketplaces and artisan shops, where goods from all corners of the kingdom can be found. The city is also home to several prominent universities and centers of learning, attracting scholars and students from far and wide. In the center of the city is the Great Square, a vast open space that is often used for public gatherings and events, such as festivals and parades.

The architecture of Roxregal is a unique blend of dwarven and human styles. Many of the buildings are constructed of stone and have intricate carvings and adornments. The city is also home to several grand cathedrals and temples, as religion plays an important role in the lives of many of its inhabitants.

Roxregal is also well-protected, with towering walls and numerous gates that can be closed in times of war or unrest. The city's military is highly trained and well-equipped, making it a formidable force to be reckoned with.

Overall, Roxregal is a vibrant and bustling city that serves as a hub of politics, commerce, and culture in the Northern Kingdom. Its impressive architecture, rich history, and strategic location make it a key player in the region.
