Serenity is a trade city at the heart of Giant’s Tableland and the Ánova Isthmus. Three decades ago, a quartet of heroes liberated the city and its surroundings from the constant presence of evil, ushering in a time of peace for the isthmus. As a symbolic culmination of their efforts, the heroes gave the city its current name.
The city is currently ruled by a four-person council . Three of the four are the original heroes who liberated and renamed the city (Telnik Stoneaxe and Asarnean Dawnreach being two of them). The fourth hero died a few years ago and was replaced on the council by an elected member.
