City of Overwatch

The City of Overwatch

– One of the most prominent cities in all of Theria, Overwatch has made itself the center of political strife for the past decade or so. Ruled by King Zannon Carter who had a feud with a group of mixed-raced travelers, he soon unleashed a string of propaganda inspiring hatred against the non-human races. The city closed off its borders and began creating weapons in the Warforged, determined to spread those borders and overtake the entire continent. Though Carter ruled through fear of the other, his hatred toward other races seemed to only be a means in which he controlled others, not the goal of his war. Only recently did the King plummet to his death at the hands of Yenward Firestomp, and the fate of the large city is still unknown.
