Old Capital (slang)
Ardis is the former capital of the Immortal Principality of Ustalav.1 It is located in the eastern region of Soivoda, in the County of Ardeal and is the largest settlement in Ardeal. The city contains many decaying estates and fallow fields.
In 4534 AR, an event known as the Great Ardis Fire destroyed parts of the city, including the Gulcharin Sanatorium. The Sanatorium was home to Grivellus Rhodenso, Ustalav's famous "Baron Librarian", and the fire killed him and burnt his priceless library.2
It was once a haven for artists, authors, poets, and the elite of society, until "Eunuch Prince" Valislav Ordranti moved the capital to Caliphas in 4674 AR.34
Ardis is also the birthplace of Soividia Ustav, a legendary hero from the Age of Enthronement, and founder of the nation.3
