Westward up the coast from the Watchtower of Tegrize is Qurefer, a steel ore mining city for the Trade Guild. It started as but a simple mine, but grew to a city of considerable size, the biggest on the island. At its peak it has the mine, several taverns and inns, miners quarters, many other residences, government buildings, villas, resorts, several smithies, and several general stores. The city's governor, Bim-Seel, and the Emperor of the Lilmothian Empire, Emperor Gold-Heart II, are bitter enemies, to the point that violence was used between them.
