Lylorn was a port city and the largest, wealthiest, and most dominant of the confederation of the Dusk Ports on Returned Abeir.[1]

BackgroundEdit

The Lylar were proud people reputed as the boldest of Abeiran sailors and for easily drawing their swords for insults, imagined or real. Lylar pirates were a staple of Abeiran folklore.[1]

Lylorn prosperity was achieved by sacrificing a large number of its own citizens to appease the green dragon Orlarrakh.[1]

GovernmentEdit

Lylorn was ruled by a lord, usually an elderly and conservative male, elected by the seventeen Lylar noble houses. They elected an elder man because, should Orlarrakh eat him, at least the old man could have enjoyed a long life.[1] In 1479 DR, the Lord of the city was the elderly dragonborn Khorinn Hekesh.[2]

DefensesEdit

Lylorn was protected by the "Draconian Militiamen", self-appointed enforcers, all humans or dwarves, who answered only to the Lord of Lylorn and the Green Duchess herself. They served the Green Duchess out of fear, but their military skills were rather poor. They wore dark green tunics with yellow dragon-eye patches, and usually carried short swords.[3]

Aside from protecting the city, the militiamen were tasked with collecting tribute to Orlarrakh and choosing dragonborn citizens to serve as sacrifices for the green dragon. They often patrolled in groups of two.[3]

ArchitectureEdit

The Lylar favored walled rooftop gardens and interior courtyards in their arch-windowed homes made of stone. Their decorated their homes with tapestries, carpets, and expensive statuettes and other luxuries.[1]

HistoryEdit

In 1479 DR, Lylar merchants arrived in Luskan in hopes to arrange permanent trade routes between Returned Abeir and Faerûn, and to outmaneuver their rivals from Tarmalune, who arrived in Neverwinter with similar goals.[4]
