New Alteros is a scholar town-turned-fortress, with a storied history deeply involved in magical research. However after its destruction at the hands of Kokb'ael it become more of a military station against the Bygonegrove yokai. Formerly known as Byson, but after its conquest by Ryan Kryos in 953 AC it was renamed to New Alteros.
Situated south of the Citadel it has always had a defensive outlook. The city itself is situated on an "island" connected by a short bridge to the north and the Shaky Bridge to the south with Tilandre. The climate is temperate and not too dissimilar from Danarium's.
