Niirdal-Poc is a hidden city in the Rifenmist Jungle that was old when the Calamity hit.[2] It was the central city of the Qoniira Tetrarchy.[3]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The fortress that the Crown Keepers visited has simple, curved architecture of smooth gray-green stone,[4] with massive vertical slits in the exterior wall.[5] Almost every home has terraced gardens.[6]

The central plaza of the city holds a large statue of a feline humanoid with four outstretched wings, the Observer, and formerly also held two statues of three-headed panther-like creatures.[7]

Society[edit | edit source]

As of 843 PD, the city was populated with humans, half-elves, hobgoblins, goblins, pachydans, and people with faces like cats (presumably tabaxi, which are indigenous to the Rifenmist Jungle, but potentially katari as well) and like birds (presumably eisfuura and/or kenku).[8] There was also a sizable genasi population.[9] Their clothing was simply cut and rough.[10]

The city is rarely visited by outsiders. It is known only to those whom the city wants to know of it.[11]

Government[edit | edit source]

The city is ruled by elected tetrarchs.[12]

History[edit | edit source]

The city was founded long before the Calamity as the capital of the Qoniira Tetrarchy, which originally comprised five cities; each of the four peripheral cities was ruled by a tetrarch, who would meet together in the capital to make group decisions. With the passage of time the other four cities have disappeared, and all four tetrarchs now reside in Niirdal-Poc.[13]
