seasons come and go/ kings live and die/ empires rise and fall/ but New Rolan/ will always be/ a pile of buffalo droppings
-“New Rolan,” by Rowan the Disgruntled
A crowded, grimy city of treachery and crime located on the Carlenian side of the Rapture River delta.
Old Rolan was a shining city of rich estates and prosperous commerce. During the Great Infernal War, Infernal forces burned the city to the ground leaving only the stone Cathedral of Bahamut, sections of the walls, and the filthy sewers. As the city was rebuilt, the criminals and gangs of the sewers gained major influence, turning it into the city it is today.
