Interesting geographic features and locations:
Glacier Pass is home to the famous Starlight Cave and the Glacier Pass Resort. It has some of the best hot springs.
Icefell’s hot springs aren’t as good or as popular as the ones in Glacier Pass but are very nice all the same and make a less expensive alternative.
Julikta is known for its many taverns and houses of ill-repute. It's red light district is the largest and most famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) on Keverynn.
For the scholastically inclined, Ardrena is a place they must visit as they have the single largest and oldest collection of scrolls, manuscripts, and books on Keverynn.
Threadsilk Manor is home to the Silkweaver's guild. The Manor is really a group of interconnected buildings that range in purpose from offices to dye vats to the darkened buildings where the silk worms are carefully nurtured. It has become a rather eccentric place in appearance. They are second only to the Ryuutenshi in craftsmanship.
The Unnamed Ruins in Shu’venath Province make an interesting place to visit. Several expeditions have been made to try and learn more about these ruins and who the buildings there once belonged to but each one uncovers more questions than answers. All attempts to decipher the symbols covering the walls there have met with failure. The place is quite the enigma.
Despite its ominous name, the Blood Lake is an interesting spot. The waters of the lake are crystal clear, but the lake bed is made of dark red soil which gives the lake its color.
The Stygian Plains range from the Twilight Valley up to a spot just south of the Shadow Citadel and are superstitiously avoided by the Wolflings. Exactly why isn’t spoken of. It is a common euphemism for an impossibility: like a Wolfling on the Stygian Plains. The area is empty, completely devoid of life, and covered in pale sand and rock.

Other tall places:
The Silver Tower in Throne City is the tallest of the Ryuutenshi Towers.
The residence of the Silver Dragonlord in Ana-Lashann is higher but not by much.
