With all the elemental monsters in Mitgardia a lot of small villages are destroyed. The direct orders from the Jarl were to give refuge to those who are looking for a safe haven. Ofcourse Elon and Ondylion's residents love to share their homes with those in need.
Today Elon was giving a speach about the "The Mystic Sanctum"
The city centre also contains a mill and a warehouse, defenitely needed when having so much refugees!
