In the Shadows of the Last War
Small city, Population 12,000
Sigilstar, called the “crossroads of Thrane”, is named after Eberron’s pole star, because the rest of Thrane is centered on the small city as the skies of Eberron are centered on that star. It sits astride the Lightning Rail line between Aruldusk and Flamekeep, and on the Orien trade road between the southern and northern parts of the nation of Thrane. Its position on the northern bank of the Thrane River allows it access via waterway to Scion’s Sound as well. The city is the primary transfer point for cargo that is switching modes of transport between land, water and rail.
Sigilstar is known for its teas, and Sigilans are known for going to the teahouses that can be found throughout the city, and where patrons can freely discuss anything, even politics and religion in ways that are practically unknown in the rest of Thrane.
