Changdo, the Imperial City, is the capital of Po Li, and was the original capital of Lung Wa, the empire that dominated Tian Xia until the death of Aroden.[1]

Geography

The Imperial City is in western Po Li, at the junction of a lake and river that feed the Sea of Ghosts' southern tip.[2]

Changdo is divided into three major zones: the inner forbidden zone home to the Oracular Council and their families and servants; its edges filled with mansions, lords, and clerks; and the outer city of merchants and commoners.[1]

Government

The Oracular Council maintains Po Li's worship of the Eternal Emperor and protects the Five Dragon Throne that awaits the emperor's reincarnation in the forbidden city.[1]

History

Construction on the massive statue of the Eternal Emperor that dominates Changdo's skyline began in 4398 AR, 208 years before the collapse of imperial Lung Wa.[3]
