Located in northern Erazel, Zaksburg is the traditional home and seat of power for House Aldrimar. It lies in the narrow highlands between the Rhayet River and the Sali River and is known as one of the regions sources of Tralmicite, a gemstone reknowned for its beauty as well as it's use in powerful spells. The mining and processing of tralmicite has made Zaksburg the wealthiest city in the region.
The first structure on the site of the modern city was the modest fort built by Zakaran Aldrimar in 1060 as part of his efforts to pacify the frontier region for King Henry I. For the next thirty years, Zakaran worked tirelessly, challenged for years by a barbarian warpriest Balian Kyredath.
