Mayhill, Capital city of Akron



Mayhill is the capitol city of the Kingdom of Akron. Mayhill houses the king’s seat and is one of the most active trading cities in the kingdom. The city’s population is somewhere in the region of 7500 which makes it one of the biggest population centers in the kingdom. Mayhill is best known for it’s bi-monthly markets that briefly double the city’s population as merchants from all around gather together to buy and sell goods. The harbor of Mayhill is also big being able to accommodate a dozen ships at any given time. The riverhead allows ships much needed safety and the relative peace of the Bay of Akron makes even long stays possible. Mayhill has a standing military of 800 men most of whom are based on the old castle east of the city center. The military men are directly under the king’s control and can be deployed in hours. The men are also responsible for the city’s safety and heavily patrol the city at nighttime making the city rather peaceful and safe for commoners. The patrolling military men have the permission to use deadly force and in fact are rather quick to draw their swords when facing disorderly conduct.

Map of the Kingdom of Akron details the roadways, general terrain features as well as the location of major population centers. The map is provided by Calishmen Guild of Cartographers. That fact is readily apparent by the scorpion emblem of Calishem. The map itself is however inaccurate as it does not show two counties at all. Those are the counties of Veyron and Inhal Corg that are the two southernmost counties bordering Calishem. Calishem and Akron have fought over those areas for centuries and while a long lasting peace is at the moment enduring and the areas are officially attached to Akron, it is not a guaranteed state.

Also the northernmost counties are not depicted in this map.
