Asklor, former capitol of the Chlendi

Before the Eschlatli union with the Maetah peoples, Asklor was the
capitol of the Chendi. Located at the base of the western mountains,
the city was originally a mining community just south of the swamps
founded by Qod Lilotle, Clan of the Violet Glory.

Asklor once held the culture's great scholarly institutions, home to
schools of sorcery as well as the National Observatory for the Clan of
the Blue Moon, who traditionally headed the Astrologer's Guild. The
city was built far from waterways or exiting communities to mine a
deposit of the sacred amberite, which was dug out from beneath the
city itself, within it's towering walls. During the Mindat incursions
the capitol was moved to Minkaraph to assist in military planning.
Although the city is now only sparsely populated, mining continues to
this day.
