Vaerna is a small town just east of the foothills of the Riders to the Sky. The town is governed by an elected mayor, with terms stretching for two years.

The local inn is named the Golden Chalice and it services the entire town, consisting of 796 human civilians, and five guardsmen. The rundown of services available is as follows:
In recent times however, the population of Vaerna has shrunk rapidly in response to increasing difficulties with kidnappings and worries for safety. Most of the town’s civilians have relocated to Mordulkin or other similar cosmopolitan cities, leaving only a small percentage of the total population remaining, many of whom have been dragooned into armed service in order to stem the tide of recent abductions.
