Vindburg is the capital city of the realm of Sondved, located on plateau, bordered to the south by the Great Cliff and high mountains to the east. The river Vind flows south through the city.

It is a wealthy city made rich from the Royal Silver Mines and trade along the Vind River between the Northern Kingdoms and to the south, the fortress city of Koubla and the great city of Moyamba. Gems, and rare metals move south from the Northern Kingdoms. Spices and exotic woods are transported north from the jungles around Moyamba.

Vindberg is joinly ruled by Sondved's king and queen, advised by 12 councillors. The councilors are nobles appointed by the king and queen, guild leaders, and two members elected by the city population. City security is provided by the Watch; the Sondved army is forbidden from acting or garrisoning within the city.

The city is divided into two principal districts: High Town, where the wealthy nobles and merchants live, and Low Town, centered around the riverside docks and wharfs.
