Founded after the flooding of Lion’s Arch when Orr rose from the seas, Divinity’s Reach is the last great human city. It’s filled with the human descendants of Ascalon, Kryta, Cantha, Elona and even Orr (not that they publicly acknowledge it). The walled city has two levels, and is shaped like a wheel that’s divided into six main districts. Each of the districts are separated by main roads devoted to the each god. Queen Jennah, ministers, and other important figures meet at the heart of Divinity’s Reach in the Central Plaza.

With the news of the Zephyr Sanctum’s arrival, Captain Magnus told Ellen Kiel to secure a trade agreement with them. If successful, she’d land a spot on the Captain’s Council. No one has ever convinced the Zephyrites to trade with Lion’s Arch before. Kiel’s already difficult task was made harder, by another rival for the Captain’s Council seat; Evon Gnashblade, the leader of the Black Lion Company.

As I waited to board the ship, a golem named LOR-748 Field Reporter gave me more information. I learned that the Zephyrites were said to be human descendants of Canthans or Elonians. Their flying ship, the Zephyr Sanctum, rarely docks to trade or sometimes host treaty talks. They are governed by three aspect masters (sun, wind, lightning) and the Master of Balance who epitomizes all three.

Boarding a ship on Lion’s Arch, I set off to visit the Zephyr Sanctum on the Labyrinthine Cliffs. For reference, the cliffs are located between Mount Maelstrom, and what was once the dwarven outpost of  Marhan’s Grotto.

Outside the comforts of Divinity’s Reach, Queensdale is the farmland humans depend on and the front line against the war with the tamini centaurs. There is also the threat of bandits and aggressive wildlife, but the centaurs have been a constant threat to Krytans. At the height of one such attack, I joined Logan Thackeray (of Destiny’s Edge fame) and the Seraph just outside the Shaemoor Garrison. It earned me the title “Hero of Shaemoor” and gave me the embark on my career as an adventurer. In this journal entry, I’m taking it upon myself to get to know every corner of Queensdale.
