Urzat Zarteriis a militarized settlement within the Augur-Kala region.

Background[edit | edit source]

Urzat Zarteri is an Augur fortress-city built on a high plateau by a tall wall of artificial stone. The place is stark and functional, its primary function being defense. The city is extremely wary of strangers.

Stretching out from the wall, the land is a vast bog patrolled by guardians called Narit Gresh. These sentries appear to be ancient, floating cylinders of rusty metal topped with the grafted heads of beasts, fleshy tendrils, and an array of sensory apparatus and weaponry.

About 15,000 people live in the multileveled city, although at least 2,000 of them are soldiers who wear chainmail armor and are trained in the use of sword-staves as well as the occasional numenera weapon. The commander of the troops and the city itself is known as the Allagos, a title won through experience, appointment, and formal combat. The current Allagos is a tall, broad-shouldered woman with short hair and a series of scars on her face and neck.[1]
