The city of Kalsgard[1] sits on the southern banks of the Rimeflow River in the northern reaches of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings known as the Thanelands. It is the biggest city in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings and as such is the most cosmopolitan city for several hundred miles, housing communities of dwarves, gnomes, Varisians and people from even further afield.[2][3][4][5][6][7]


Kalsgard is home of the oldest and most powerful of the Linnorm Kings, Sveinn Blood-Eagle, though it is suspected that he will soon be making his final journey across the seas to Valenhall in distant Arcadia, as is the tradition amongst the Linnorm Kings.[8]


Kalsgard is divided into nine districts, called city quarters:[9]


Underneath the city is another living area known as the enclave of Undercroft, home to many dwarves.[10]


Across the Rimeflow River, on its northern bank, lies the associated township of Iceferry, where many of the city's gnomes reside.[10]


In addition to the thousands of Ulfen and Varisians, Kalsgard is also home to a sizeable Tian population, as the city is the terminus of one of the branches of the trade route over the Crown of the World to the distant continent of Tian Xia.[8]
