Myr is one of the Free Cities. It is known for its lace and its green nectar.[1] Myr sits on the eastern shore of the Sea of Myrth, along the western coast of the eastern continent.[2]



The inhabitants of the city are renowned for being great craftsmen. Its main exports are its finished goods, such as its carpets and lace. The best glass comes from Myr; a clear pane is worth its weight in spice. The best far-eyes are also made in Myr, and are as a result known as Myrish eyes. Myr produces gowns made of Myrish lace.[3]

The city is located on the mainland of the eastern continent and is ruled by Magisters. It has its own language. Most native Myrmen are dark-haired and dark-eyed.[4]
