Paladia is a holy city-state ruled by a council of 7 great paladins dedicated to the god Bahamut. Its most notable council member was Archaia, a powerful beholder who helped keep order and played a key role in Paladia’s founding. Paladia surrounds the darkspire, a place of evil energy and former home to the death gem: see The 7 gems of power. The holy nature of the city cleanses and quarantines the evil energy from seeping into the land. Paladia was nearly flattened by Lord Loudrey in the gem wars, but was rebuilt with help from King Fluxy and his advisor Fontaine. The city now houses two paladin orders, the paladins of bahamat, and the Fluxy’s own personal paladins dedicated to him.
