Eoforwic was the capital of Forthweg. At the beginning of the Derlavaian War, Forthweg was partitioned between Unkerlant and Algarve, with Eoforwic falling into the Algarvian zone. Eoforwic had a large Kaunian population, which soon became subject to the Algarvians' horrifying practice of rounding up members of this group for "Special Magecraft".

Literary comment[]

Eoforwic was the Anglian name for York, England.

The fictional city's story arc parallels the experience of Warsaw, Poland during World War II.
