Ak’Anon is a city of contradiction. Good and evil, abandon and care, whimsy and concentration- all these live alongside one another here. King Ak’Anon rules over the splendor and keeps the city from spinning off its axle.
The ticking and whirling of machines great and small punctuate the lives of the gnome residents of Ak’Anon. Clockwork guides direct visitors around the city, and there is much to see. Merchants are plentiful, selling both standard everyday items and bizarre gnomish machinations. The Ak’Anon zoo is famed worldwide for its collection of natural and unnatural creatures. The Library Mechanamagica feeds a hunger for knowledge that lures even the Erudites here to learn more.
Built in the valley in the Steamfont Mountains, city engineers have constructed huge windmills to power various city machines. A narrow chasm to the Lesser Faydark is the main point of entry, but rumors of hidden dock and tunnel below the city would explain how so many wonders came to be so far away from the rest of the civilized world.
