Azos sixty years before was just a speck on a map, a little mining village in the outskirts of Thenn, too little and unimportant in the grand schemes of the sorcerous city, just a source of ore. Today it is the hub of Delver activity, and one of the few bastions of Humanity known. Thenn itself is a corpse, fed upon by the vultures of Humanity, The Delvers.
Azos has built high walls and protects itself. Inside Azos is a growing collection of magical knowledge and artifacts many would love to take for themselves. Azos is no home to strangers, but begrudgingly allows humans into its' walls with pleas for sanctuary. These potential ne'er-do-wells never get a chance for mayhem however, they are often made a guest of one of the many barracks until they can be escorted to Hardhome or other nearby safe haven.
