TradeEdit

Iriaebor carried the caravan trade on The Dusk Road over the rapids and rough water of the upper Chionthar river, and linked up with the Trader's Road.[4]

The Shield of Iriaebor was the name of the armed forces of the city. They acted to both police the city and patrol the surrounding lands. They were well-armed.[2]

The city was split into three sections: the Docks, at the bottom of the ridge on the river Chionthar; the Old City, built on the ridge itself; and the Lower City, on the flat lands on top of the ridge.[4] Space was limited in the city, so the locals simply built upwards. Many-storied towers rose from all over the city, joined to one another by bridges. The city streets were narrow and winding, covered in shadows.[2]
