Thorvar is the former capital of a great kingdom of the same name. It was the crown jewel constructed by the High King after the expulsion of the Pact Lords. Ever since, however, it has been destroyed, rebuilt, and destroyed again through a serious of disasters and wars, most significantly the invasion by the Eternal Hunger and the Great Migration. Currently, it is ruled by a council representing the most powerful factions to survive the Great Betrayal. The current incarnation is built upon ruins and catacombs from the old cities, leading to the surge in varying adventuring parties or “Delvers” in the city itself, as these old ruins tend to be filled with both monsters that pose a threat to the city and treasure waiting for the taker. It also stands in the shadows of the Spire, a massive rock formation housing a vault intended to store the most dangerous items in the realm, The Banewarrens.
