Mercathia is where the current campaign began. The town itself is a trading city located on a river in a savanna, just north of a large desert. The city practices a annual Retreat Festival, and has a temple for Bethia and Anya, the Twin Goddesses. The town is mainly a human population, with (formerly) one elf and a gnome. Mercathia's attack by The Necromancer during the Retreat Festival incited the heroes to head east.
