Known throughout the Tranorian Empire as the City of Scholars, Yerelbek is ruled by the Council of Deans. The five schools of Yerelbek, the Bardic College, the Mage’s University, the Craftsman’s Institute, the Warrior’s Academy, and the Pantheon Sanctuary research new knowledge in their respective fields and provide anyone willing to join their ranks with an education. In exchange for education, students are expected to devote two years of service to their school, unless a monetary donation of two years worth of labor is made.
Because Yerelbek is willing to teach all, and her schools are considered among, if not the best in Terminus, Yerkelbek is a hub of economic and social activity. Nearly anything can be found in Yerelbek, from any part of Terminus, and what cannot be found in Yerelbek, can be invented in Yerelbek.
The slums of Yerelbek are nearly as bustling with activity as her schools. The drug trade flourishes in a city where both tourists and students come to seek new experiences, and the less moral merchants are more than willing to accommodate them.
