The Free Cities

The Free Cities are a region of Aithar which is relatively ungoverned, other than by smaller municipalities. The Council of Mindel governs from Mindel, a great city in western Aithar constructed by the seven races after the First Invasion. The Council provides resolution to grievances between the cities and provinces of the area, but no more. The governments of other nations of the world provide funding for the city when it needs it in exchange for seats on the Council.
