The Palace of the Empire (never the Imperial Palace or some variation) is the official residence of the Emperor of Aesedra. It is located on the east shore of Seling Deep in Iron Gates, twenty miles west of Kyne and occupies an estate of several thousand acres, all of which is the exclusive preserve of the Emperor.
It was built during the brief dynasty of the Torras about 8450 and has been the Imperial residence ever since. It is roughly square with about two hundred yards to a side, with many spires and towers built into its layered mass. It is a huge building containing several thousand rooms, many of which lie abandoned and forgotten.
It is not the seat of government for the Empire. That honour goes to the Day Palace in Kyne.
