This is the city where Veluna started. The Crook of Rao was found in the catacombs underneath the present Cathedral of Rao almost 600 years ago. Since that time, the city has grown up around it and became the center of religion and culture for Veluna.
Mitrik is a very old city and shows it. The entire city is almost totally constructed of stone. When walking through its streets you get the feeling of ancient power and the worn roads show the path that thousands have walked over the past 5 centuries. The city is divided into several wards. Large stone walls separate each section with gates controlling the flow of traffic. All sections of the city are open to anybody except the temple grounds themselves which are open to authorized members and their guests only. The dock area is very clean and orderly compared to most other cities. It is well patrolled and trouble is not common. Just up the river from the dock area you can see the floating villa’s of some of the merchant lords of the city rising and falling with the seasonal floods.
