The original home of the tribe that produced King Irenaeus, and the core territory of what later became the Mephitist Empire. At its peak, the city was home to a substantial library, the Hall of Ancestors, the Summer Palace, and many other buildings of note, as well as governmental offices.

Located in higher elevations, Albric Tor was rather cooler than other nearby parts of Faerie, and was thus ideal for a summer capital. It was also home to a number of hot springs and fumaroles, some of which were under Albric Tor Cathedral.

During the final, brutal Plague of Battles (as recounted in Zandar's Saga 409), the Summer Palace was destroyed.
