Modern Exalted: Bring back the Light
Located on the Isle of Voices by the Blessed Isle’s rugged northern coast, Versino is a major center for trade and finance. It’s weathered the nation’s changing economy better than many other cities in Meruvia’s lightly populated northern reaches, where a manufacturing downturn has transformed major urban centers into ghost towns. It’s also more ethnically diverse than the rest of the region, which
was settled primarily by farmers and herders of Fellaran and Cheraki stock.
Versino hosts the Heptagram, Meruvia’s premier pub-lic research university for science and engineering. The campus’s glittering glass and steel buildings enclose cutting-edge biotechnology and nanotechnology projects. The first Dragon-Blooded were created here, and rumor suggests new developments in the process are underway. As many projects relate to national defense, security is tighter than normal for a university campus. Military guards and biometric scanners protect important sites from unwanted scrutiny.
