Impression of Salazsar, city of gems
by mg

Salazsar, also known as the City of Gems, is one of the six Walled Cities located in Izril.


Youngest of the Walled Cities, Salazsar was built twenty-one thousand years ago after the initial founding of the other Walled Cities and started out as a small mining town.

At some point, it went to war with the Plain's Eye Tribe. The fighting was so bitter, that after the war, all sides feared that Salazsar and Plain's Eye Tribe would violate any truths made. As such, a binding pact was made by the Archmage of Sinful Magics, the Guardian of the Vail, and Belavierr. [1]

Salazar is built into the side of a mountain, and grows larger as it mines further in. It is extremely vertical, with a multitude of towers supporting platforms and walkways. Higher levels in the towers indicate higher income or status.

Rather than maintain individual standing armies, the Walled Families pay into a fund called the Gem Regiments that trains and retains different elite military forces that can be hired by any Walled Family or recalled by Salazsar as necessary.[2] The individual hiring specifies the desired regiment, the length of service, the desired number of forces, and the duties that will be carried out and receives a contract for that force. Some known Gem Regiment forces are:

  • Occum Swords
  • Erchirite Spears
  • Rubirel Guard




  • Salazsar is the "premier Walled City, the hub of Drake civilization and an icon of the continent", or so Ilvriss claims. Considering that he is one of its Lord of the Walls, it is very likely that he is simply biased.[4]
  • Salazsar may have been founded by the Dragonlord of Gems, Saracandre.[5]
    • While not explicitly stated in the text, Saracandre was described to be the founder of a small Walled City, which fits the description of Salazsar at the time.
