The Free City of Qeynos is a major city, not just on Antonica, but throughout all Norrath. It serves as the heart of the kingdom of the same namesake and is ruled by Antonius Bayle III. The plains of Karana to the east hold hundreds of small farms and outposts and open up onto the rest of the continent. Regular trade flows from the docks of the Free City to the city of Erudin and vice versa. Some foolhardy captains go farther south, but only with the aid of spellcasters, since the next closest opportunity to restock their ships is on the frigid continent of Velious.
The king of Qeynos, Antonius Bayle III, is a celebrity of sorts, and he associates with all kinds of people. Known as “the City of Infinite Trade,” the thriving metropolis of Qeynos has nearly everything a beginning adventurer could want, and more may be discovered. Mostly run by humans, Qeynos sees people of all races and creeds pass through the city on some journey or grand adventure. Someone is always in need, someone is always quarreling, and someone is always willing to give people paying errands or jobs somewhere within the city. Finding something interesting and rewarding here is easy to do. Doing it without making enemies is the art.
For those unwelcome folk, Qeynos has an extensive catacomb system beneath the surface. Formerly used as an aqueduct system, it is now home to a cult of Bertoxxulous. They assume that anyone who is serious about speaking with them is also prepared to deal with the horrifying fiends they leave to roam freely through the sewer tunnels.
