Ax's Friday Night 4E Campaign
Capital and only city of the tropical island nation bearing the same name, Nefelus is built among the vegetation on either side of the high cliffs of an inlet.
Population: 32,500; few live more than a mile from the cliffside shores, since the rainforest beyond is dense. Most of the residents are devas; there is a minority population of eladrin, elves, gnomes, half-elves, and humans here. The rest of the races are unknown to Nefelus, although some say that dwarves, dragonborn, and goliaths live in the mountains in the interior of the island.
Government: Nefelus is a magocracy, ruled by a council of seven deva mages called the Thraxinium. The council is elected once every ten years by devas that possess the ability to cast rituals. No other Nefelese citizens are allowed to vote for the Thraxinium. The government sits in the Great Library, a massive domed structure that rises above all other buildings and is also the university, library, and main temple complex to Corellon and Ioun. In foreign affairs, Nefelus is isolationist, conducting only limited trade and relations with the outside world.
