Heliogabalus - The Hill


The Hill

In the posh area of town, the Hill, the streets are all brick, and the neighborhood is broken up into numerous small walled estates. These estates belong to many of the most powerful persons in town – including the Torros but not the Rees.


Population: 4,546 residents. There is less of a demographic mix on the Hill, most residents are old Damaran blood.


The Moneychangers’ Guild and the Goldsmiths’ Guild work tirelessly to keep The Hill relatively crime free. Each of the guilds have a staff assigned to the Hill’s administrative office, and unlike other districts, the guilds pay close attention to everything. The other voice in the Hill’s politics are the noble and wealthy families which call the Hill home led by the Torros family. The Torros family has not had good dealings with the Ree’s and act as one of the strongest opponents to the Ree’s plots and schemes.

District Guard

Captain Sergei Dorin leads the city watch on the Hill. A hero of the Witch-King’s war, he led an attack that diverted one of Zhengyi’s orcish hordes away from Heliogabalus. Sergei was outspoken when Baron Ree moved his seat of power from Morovar to Heliogabalus, but is popular enough that moving against him would damage the Baron. The fact that the city’s guard answers to the guilds and not directly to the Baron also gives Captain Dorin another layer of protection. Between Captain Dorin, the guilds and the Torros family, the Hill is one of the few places in Heliogabalus where the Ree family is not welcome.

Main Industries

The two major guilds on The Hill are the Moneychangers’ Guild and the Goldsmiths’ Guild. The main industry of the Hill can be summarized as the movement of wealth.

Important People

  • Captain Sergei Dorin leads the city watch on the Hill.
  • Aleksander Torros is the head of the Torros family, one of the few powerful families openly opposed to the Rees
  • Ralston Tarr, owner of the Patrician’s Club knows everyone in the district and has contacts with nobles and the wealthy and powerful well beyond the Hill
  • Jaida Aldane is the Knight Commander of the Sanctum of the Stainless Soul.
  • Talasek Thraydin is first among equals in the paladin order of the Golden Cup.
  • Lysarin is a mysterious and somewhat reclusive mage who lives in a tower in the Villas
  • Virtuoso Arnam Veline is the High Priest of Milil who runs the House of Flowing Notes in Silverheart

The list above is only a short list of individuals who have a greater effect on the district, as the district of the wealthy and powerful, everyone encountered on The Hill should be considered an “important person”. More than likely, they are in some manner.
