Welcome to the city of New Kaineng, a metropolis of culture, heritage, and innovation. After the old city was partially destroyed during the Zhaitan Disaster, the people of Cantha worked to rebuild. Largely in thanks to Xunlai Jade and the discovery of dragonjade, New Kaineng became a pioneer of innovation. Today, we flourish under a vision of renewed hope. People from all stretches of Cantha live together within these walls. Together. Guided by the unflinching support of our Ministries, New Kaineng is a city for the people. Together, we will create a better Cantha. Tomorrow, a better world.
New Kaineng is a geographical region within Cantha, and contains the city of the same name. It is bordered by the remnants of Drowned Kaineng in the north, the Echovald Forest in the southeast, and it has a direct naval route to Shing Jea Island to the southwest. Since the Zhaitan Disaster which occurred a century ago, New Kaineng has been populated by the descendants of the surviving mainland Canthans as well as some tengu.
After the Zhaitan Disaster which hit Cantha in 1729 CC, the old Kaineng City was flooded and destroyed by the Great Tsunami, so the city had to move to the southern region which had become a swamp and had been populated by the naga. It was Emperor Bitgaram together with his daughter Princess Haebaragi who supervised and led the construction of the foundations of the city of New Kaineng. Bitgaram gave the orders to both the imperial army and navy to stop the Risen invasion, and granted Minister Yeongi of the Ministry of Purity even more authority to ensure Cantha's continued survival in 1730 CC (1220 AE). The emperor health was ailing, however, so he retreated to the Imperial Family's estate on Shing Jea Island in 1737 CC (1227 AE), after which his daughter Haebaragi was put in charge of supervising the construction of the New City of Kaineng despite her youth.
End of Dragons
Currently the city has prospered and thanks to Xunlai Jade, it has a technological development and has the Jade Mechs that serve as vigilantes that patrol the streets of the city.
The region is located south of the original Kaineng City, which was flooded during the Great Tsunami caused by the Zhaitan Disaster.
The nature of the original terrain beneath the new city region is unclear due to the substantial urban construction atop the swamps. The current terrain is a mixture of sea-level areas with high rise elevations. Canals cut straight through the city blocks.
To the north and west lies the Unending Ocean, resulting in a substantial coastline around these two sides of the city. To the east lies rockier terrain, and to the southeast lies the edge of the free territory of the Echovald Forest.
