Vyborg

Vyborg

Vyborg is a fortress-city of the Rys, part of Gadhariki in the Rys Khanate (technically at the southern end of Karelia). King Bautur (whose family came from Smaland in Gautland long ago, owes fealty to Oleg Khan, but operates independently for the most part.

Vyborg is a port city, but most of its fleet survives by raiding along the coast of Gaunorria as well as trading missions farther afield. King Bautur does little to discourage this.

Significant Locations:
- The Giant Stones – a circle of massive stones surrounding a rough obelisk at the center of Vyborg, apparently built by giants in the dim mists of history. There is also evidence of ancient dvergar work around the stones. At the foot of the obelisk there is a gently sloping tunnel leading down into the darkness of some tunnels and caverns below. An iron portcullis and other defenses are in place, and it is guarded at all times. Some say that it leads to Undirmyrkrit. No one is allowed to enter without a royal charter from the king of Vyborg.
