The Lake Town of Ur (湖畔こはんまちウル, Kohan no Machi Uru?) is a town in the world of Tortus.

Layout[edit | edit source]

Ur is a lakeside town that was full of natural resources. It has many fields for cultivateing its specialty foods. It is just west to Urdea Lake, which is Tortus' largest lake. Just north of it is the Northern Mountain Ranges that is full of various monsters. A newer feature of Ur is its four meter-tall stone boarder that was created by Hajime Nagumo before fighting against Yukitoshi Shimizu's army of 60,000 monsters. It is still maintained by the townspeople and has been stylized with many carvings and paintings.

Deep below Urdea lake is a hidden ruin that once held the scythe Artifact "Egxess".

History[edit | edit source]

At some point in time, a pair of water sprites from Urdea Lake visited one of Ur's Inn, which later changed its name to "Water Sprite Inn", and eventually became the town's most famous inn.

The first ruler of the Hoelscher Empire traveled to Ur in order to investigate the rumours of Urdea Lake in possession of a mysterious power, and wished to claim it for himself. He discovered a hidden ruin at the bottom of the lake that contained the Artifact "Egxess", to which he took.

After the Heroes of Earth were summoned to Tortus, Aiko Hatayama visited Ur with several of her students in order to help with its agriculture due to her Job as "Farmer". One of her students, Yukitoshi Shimizu, left Ur without a trace. Soon after he disappeared, an increase in Monster activity in the northern mountains made it more difficult for Ur's townspeople to collect spices and other ingredients for their food. They requested the aid from the Adventurer's Guild to investigate, but the adventurers that visited the mountains never returned. Hajime Nagumo then visited Ur as he was traveling to the northern mountains in order to find out what happened to the missing adventurers. He unexpectedly reunited with Aiko and his old classmates at the Water Sprite Inn. All of them traveled to the mountains the next day and discovered that all but one of the adventurers were killed by a dragon. It was later revealed that an army of over 60,000 monsters was headed straight for Ur. Hajime and his companions managed to defeat the army and capture its leader, who turned out to be Yukitoshi Shimizu.

Stories of Hajime's victory spread from Ur, and it lead to Aiko being labeled the "Goddess of Victory" and Hajime as her "sword".

After Hajime returned to Earth, he brought his family, as well as his wives and their families, back to Tortus for a holiday vacation which included a stop at Ur. When they arrived at Ur, they met up with Pope Simon Levellair of the Holy Church while he was touring Tortus. Hajime showed his family and the people of Ur the battle that took place against the army of Monsters by using restoration magic to show a past projection of the event. He followed up with a concert that was performed by Aiko, Liliana, and Myu in order to help calm everyone down after witnessing such a bloody battle.
