Corus, the capital city of Tortall, rangeed on the northern and southern banks of the Oloron River. It was situated in western Tortall, half a day's travel from Port Caynn. The city was made of different districts and was home to the domain of the Rogues, the crooked population of Tortall. The royal palace was situated on an hill south of the Olorun. Around the middle of the fifth century of the Human Era a new royal university was founded in Corus.
In the capital people of different nationalities and professions could be found as could exotic fruits and other products. Especially on market days many people from the countryside came to the city. Then Corus looked especially bright.
