Writ of Justice Eightfold
“City of Splendor”
Janurilia is one of the newest cities of the Empire, but by no means a young one. It it within the living memory of many elders that Janurilia was brought into the fold of the Eastern Empire. The city itself, however, has a long legacy.
Located on the edge of the Cambriot Wilds, where the rich flora abruptly gives way to arid sand-fields, Janurilia flourished as it found a balance point between these two extremes. Admittedly benefiting from old wisdom gleaned from Arkhosian ruins from the desert regions and also from the riot of flora and fauna from the Wilds, the City of Splendor attracted travelers of any imaginable type, and at points in its history even grew to be a kingdom in its own right before receding to a self-sustaining city-state. Most recently it entered an arrangement with the Eastern Empire, submitting to taxation and a surrender of some of their historical autonomy in exchange for the benefits of access to the expansive trade networks and military protection of the Empire. Most residents of Janurilia see the arrangement as more of a formality than a true shift of authority, and largely retain the spirit of independence the city has always shown.
Janurilia has one of the most diverse populations in the Empire, and because if it’s long and storied history of travel, trade, and exploration, is one of the most welcoming to offworlders.
