Edge of the Empire - Under the Heel
Iziz, Royal City of Onderon
Onderon’s capital city (and major settlement) is a sprawling, walled metropolis covering approximately sixteen hundred square kilometers. The city is protected by a defense grid to fend off aerial attacks The city’s center is occupied by a steep hill housing the Royal Palace, now vacant under the Imperial governorship. Access to elevated areas such as the palace and the battlements of the city’s outer walls is restricted to travel through fortified bridges known as sky ramps. The southern reaches of the city make up the Merchant Quarter, where the bulk of the city’s commerce is handled.
Despite the common assumption that Iziz is the only civilized settlement on Onderon, a few villages full of hardy or stubborn settlers manage to survive in the jungle.
