The city of Kalsgard sits on the southern bank of the Rimeflow River in the more northern reaches of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings known as the Thanelands. It is the biggest city in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings and as such is the most cosmopolitan city for several hundred miles, housing communities of dwarves, gnomes, Varisians and people from even further afield. Kalsgard is also home of the oldest and most powerful of the Linnorm Kings, Sveinn Blood-Eagle, though it is suspected that he will soon be making his final journey across the seas to Valenhall in distant Arcadia, as is the tradition amongst the Linnorm Kings
The first and oldest settlement in the Linnorm Kingdoms, it’s also the largest by far—nearly three times the size of the next largest Linnorm Kingdom in terms of population. The city is a cosmopolitan mix of native Ulfen, Tians, dwarves, gnomes, and traders from the south. Unlike many other parts of the Linnorm Kingdoms, Kalsgard locals are generally open and welcoming to non-Ulfen visitors. A significant Tian population resides in an area called the Jade Quarter along Kalsgard’s waterfront. The city’s shipyards turn out dozens of the finest longships built in the Linnorm Kingdoms each year.
