The World Begins Anew
Ketts was the old imperial capital of the Northeastern province of Highscarp. Prior to the Harrowing Ketts was a frontier town that was slowly transforming into a more cosmopolitan city due to trade with the dwarves of Fjalheim.
Ketts also was connected to the local Imperial garrison of Coldhome Keep on Loch Blackdeep by a causeway that ran from the city docks to the island the fortress sat on. The causeway had drawbridges at two points to allow for traffic on the lake carrying goods from Truce to the Silver River or South to Outcast.
Because of the size of the city (over 18,000) only about half of the residents were able to take shelter in Ketts' citadel, Kettsdelve. The remainder sought shelter in the delves that had been established for Truce, and with the Fjalheim dwarves.
