Burwich is the main trading city and one of the oldest cities of the Crown Empire, founded in 4895 PA as a trading post, and is the effective capitol of the Crown Kingdom. It is located near Crown Castle. In recent years many have fled from Carthia to the city in order to escape from political turmoil and attacks from the former Eastern Kingdom. The lake to the west of the city has begun to slowly dry up over the past few centuries, and it is unknown why. It is the most diverse city in the Empire.
