The Archmagedom of Ionia began with the three colonial regions of Aiolia, Doria, and Ionia, with Ionia being the largest. It was ruled by the fourteen Archmages, of which only one remains. The capital, Ieapoli lies on the southern coast. It was in this place that the portal that brought mages from the moon appeared. The city that grew around it is one of the most impressive in the world, even though it has suffered a massive amount of damage during the Ionian War.
