Ethshar of the Rocks is the north-westernmost of the Three Ethshars. The Pirate Towns sit between Ethshar of the Rocks and Ethshar of the Sands.

The overlord of Ethshar of the Rocks is, theoretically, responsible for defending the borders west of the Great River. The city was to have maintained an army of 10,000 men, but they were actually subsumed into the city guards a long time ago and no longer have any independent existence.

The city has a shipyard, however it has been contracted out and is not directly run by the city.


The Fortress- unlike the other two Ethshars there is no Palace. The seat of the overlord is, instead, the fortress which originally grew up when the city was the base of the Western Command of the Ethsharatic army.
