Almost certainly the most fortified city in Kenafiir, Held is a massive military base with fortifications stretching from the Motheri Heights down the entire length of the Letemph River. Imperial aristocrats in Endyreat would much rather fund defenses at Held than risk even the remote possibility of war touching the jewel of the Empire. While Held has some commerce, local mining is forbidden except by special Imperial detachments. The military base maintains two full Legions at any time and a considerable navy to stop any crossing of the Kingscrown Lake.
The massive force of Fireborn and soldiers from the Medina Confederation brought to bear against the empire by the paladins of Rhamas were finally stopped and broken at Held. While this signaled the end of the most devastating war in Imperial history, it cost the Empire nearly a quarter of its men-at-arms.City Stats:
