The City was once the capital city of the Vampire Kingdom but after the Dreadlords of Exitium took over it was promoted to the capital city of the continent due it’s strong defense. The City was built by the self-exiled Vasilvok Prince who after being turned into a Vampire by the first Vasilvok Lord Rauveal ran away from the kingdom he called home. The prince changed his name into Alucard Adamache and settled down in these lands. He spread his taint among the travellers and slowly the settlement grew as more turned into vampires or vampiric spawn. After a few years of feeding on innocent travellers and brave adventurers, the vampires who had all taken on the name Adamache calmed down from their blood crazed thirst and formed a pact that would stop the unnecesary killing and feeding on innocents. This pact led to the formation of a peaceful vampire settlement which slowly grew and eventually formed into the Blutrunstreigen Kingdom.
The Kingdom is home to a flock of peaceful vampires and people exiled from their city or continent and those seeking refuge from forces pursiuing them. A few packs of Lycanthropes joined the kingdom due to the kingdoms acceptance of all humanoids.

The last surviving remenant of the Orc Empire. The surviving Orcs of the Dragonborn and Orc Empire of Orrinhatch after wandering for a few years pillaging what they could finally settled in the area near the mountain range of Grimmig Continent. Having lost the a massive amount of their horde the Orcs decided to setlle down and build their strengths. After the Dreadlords of Exitium arrived in the continent they found potential in the Orcs as certain arcane secrets of Orrinhatch’s Empire had been left with them. The Dreadlords began the slow rise of the Orc city by aiding the implementation of druidic, arcanic and divine magic in the daily lives of the Orcs. Eventually it turned into the main industrial city of the continent. It was the city in which the first K-Shop (Dreadlords of Exitium owned) was opened.
The city is currently on its way to become the most influential city of the continent. The city was among the first to become the Dreadlords of Exitium Bannermen. The city is currently governed by a Magii Council which has representatives of arcane, divine, druidic and warriors.
