Nashkel

Naskhel is the northernmost city of Amn, actually resting north of Amn’s established border in the Cloud Peaks. It is 2,000 feet above sea level, 500 feet above the cities of lost Minsorran, and 200 feet higher than Imnescar. These factors give Nashkel the nicknames of the Cold City, Windy City, or Sloping City of Amn, as it rests on the low northern slopes of the Cloud Peaks. Nashkel is almost autonomous, as roads to it are often blocked by snows, but it still considers itself part of Amn.
