Firsthold is one of the main cities on Auridon, the second largest of the Summerset Isles. It's home to a great Orrery constructed out of celestial material, which was gathered by travelers to Aetherius in the Merethic Era. The great river Diceto passes through the royal parks of the city. The city is featured as the setting of the book The Firsthold Revolt. High Councilor and later Potentate Ocato of the Third Empire was born here.
Legend says that Firsthold is where High Lord Torinaan first landed on the Summerset Isles.
