The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
Asphyr is one of the oldest cities in the
Central Broadlands .
An ancient highway, known as the Way of Qend leads from Asphyr to
Ziard , and is the main passage between the
North Broadlands and
Central Broadlands for most travelers.
Asphyr is a city-state, and as such is self-governing. Its governmental body is
(imaginatively enough) the Council of Asphyr. The council is a thirteen member body
that oversees all aspects of the city. The council is responsible for everthing from
agriculture production and trade, to the military.
The city of Asphyr is home to the The Grey Circle , a powerful
organization of mages that has spread far and wide across Northern Sryth .
In the centre of the city sits the Tower of Anarain , where the
mysterious personage known only as The Grey Mage has presided
over Sryth's most famous brotherhood of spellcasters since before even the eldest can remember.
Despite being officially governed by the Council of Asphyr, there are many who believe
that it is The Grey Mage who actually wields the most political
power in the city.
