Officially called "Arindell" some scholars use the colloqual "New Arindell" to describe the city as it was reconstructed following the Long Night. Only four original structures survived: the Arindell Necromancer Temple, the Tabernacle, the Library, and parts of Valley Gail Keep.


When Stormreaver Valley was being surveyed for resettlement, it was discovered that signficant portions of the old city were largely intact beneath 30 feet of accumulated hard-packed earth.

The New Day reconstruction of the city center was built roughly sixty feet higher than the old city to preserve the ruins. The new city used a series of utilidoors beneath the surface, allowing many services to be kept out of site as well as providing additional space. This brought the valley floor roughly level with the Keep, changing much of the character of the city.


Arindell has three major city districts: the City Center, Travel Town, and Dragontown.


Dragontown is unique for being the one part of the city with highrise construction. Every where else has bans on building height in order to preserve the iconic skyline, but in Dragontown several very tall skyscrapters were constructed. These house the headquarters for High Mountain Bank and Trust as well as the seat of power for the human commissioners of the Trans-Draconic Federation. Dragontown is also home to an array of lavish mansions owned by various dragons, and is conveniently adjacent to Dragonland amusement park.

Gate House is the terminus of the Triumph Road and scene gateway to the city of Arindell. It is one of the denser populated areas outside the city center, home to an enormous train station and rail yard. This is where nearly everyone comes or goes from the city, with trains departing for Boarder Watch roughly every five minutes.

Conveniently nearby is a section of the city with many hotels and other amenities, as well as housing for employees in the rail industry. This area is affectionately known as "Travel Town" for its association with the rail industry and its role as the first stop for most travelers into the city.
