Erudin is the home city of the Erudites, a sect of humans that long ago migrated from the known world to settle in an out of the way place and study the known and unknown. Now that they have returned to the world, their capital city is considered one of the finest collections of knowledge in all of Norrath.
Erudin has a small, but active, port with regular ships leaving for Erud's Crossing and Qeynos beyond that. The city itself sits on the coast, and is bordered on the inland side by the vast, dark Toxxulia Forest. Just off the shore lies the island of the Kerrans, and the city of the Heretics, Paineel, lies somewhere in the forest.
Travelling To and From Erudin
Erudin can be reached from the mainland by boat from the human city of Qeynos. This boat makes a brief stop in Erud's Crossing before arriving at Erudin itself.
Inland Erudin is bordered by the vast Toxxulia Forest. Passing through this forest leads to Paineel, and there is an unused dock that leads to the island of the Kerrans. There are also Druid and Wizard portals in the forest itself.
The city of Erudin is notable for its practicality, and there are buildings for what the citizens need and little else within. Of note, the city is practically built around the great hall of learning, the Erudin Library, the greatest collection of knowledge in the world of good races. Its only rival is rumored to be in the Dark Elf city of Neriak far to the east.
The city of Erudin is a very calm and quiet place, designed for the silent reflection and learning of its inhabitants. There are several prominent locals in the various guilds, and these Erudites, in many cases, represent the most knowledgable in all of Norrath in their various fields of study.
