The Arena of Trials
The second biggest city in Ingrahm and almost the richest Apate is located in a prime location for trade. Two major rivers run on either side allowing for the shipping of metal ores and lumber from the mountains to the west. Apate is also the most heavily fortified city in Ingrahm. This is due to the fact that they are isolated in a hostile land with very little natural protection. Because the city of so removed from the rest of the GDE the people have begun to disassociate themselves with the other cities forming there own unique culture. Being so remote in a hostile land the people of Apate have seem a lot of combat without aid from the other cities. Apate has become known for their self reliance and their dark, battle hardend culture.
