The city of Kalsgard 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.
Kalsgard was home of the oldest and most powerful of the Linnorm Kings, Sveinn Blood-Eagle, before he made his final journey across the seas to Valenhall in distant Arcadia, as is the tradition amongst the Linnorm Kings, in 4719 AR. He was succeeded by his daughter Thira Ash-Eyes, who claimed his throne in the traditional manner: by slaying a linnorm.
Kalsgard is divided into nine districts, called city quarters:
- Amber Quarter
- Bone Quarter
- Fire Quarter
- Horn Quarter
- Ice Quarter
- Ivory Quarter
- Jade Quarter
- Oak Quarter
- Stone Quarter

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.
