Garnet was a Neidar community located at the western edge of the Garnet Mountains. It was located half between Caergoth and Thelgaard Keep. It was founded prior to the Cataclysm and was a village known primarily for it’s trading. Following the Cataclysm the town remained in good relations with the underground cities of the Kayolin.
The village of Garnet was a self-sufficient town following the Cataclysm. Life in Garnet continued on as normal in the years following the event. Trade was established with the Solamnics in the north. The town was a key trading point with several cities in Solamnia, with the city known for having strong warhorses and wool markets.
A high wall that had two dualgates on the northern and southern sides surrounded Garnet. These gates stood on the main road that ran from Garnet into the Kayolin realm. The houses and shops built inside of Garnet were a mixture of wood and stone buildings.
The city was divided into three sections based on the residents living there. There was a dwarven, human and gnome section of the city, which were all ruled by a three-member council that was elected from the different sections of the city. This was done so that the best interest in Garnet would be carried out and not a specific groups.
Age of Mortals
Following the Chaos War the Dark Knights took control of the city and it expanded rapidly. Even though the city expanded, it was considered a scum-hole. The city was then liberated by the Solamnic Knights and declared its independence of the Solamnics with the Compact of Freedom. Following the War of Souls in 425 AC, the city was attack Ankhar and his hobgoblin and goblin army. The city fell in a matter of minutes, with the horde pillaging and killing at will all there was in the city.
