City Image - Pier Point    Locations  (City)   (Any)

Whilst it is part of Vandersil, because it brings in a lot of money in trade, Queen Yocasta is kind to her subjects and people can normally grumble without being executed for it.

City Image - Bayaallatalstonescha    Locations  (City)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Bayaallatalstonescha is a beautiful city. That by itself is not saying much, as all Elventi cities are beautiful. Bayaallatalstonescha is called beautiful by Elventi, one of the few places they actually apply that term to. It is on level peak on a tall mountain not too far from the ocean shore.  In fact, on a clear day, one can see the ocean from appropriate places in the city.

City Image - BroadMound    Locations  (City)   (Swamp)

The underlying terrain of the city defines it. It is a large, broad mound. This cluster is as strange to the Kerrenese as Venice or a sunken city is to most Westerners.

City Image - Medhar, the City that hides.    Locations  (City)   (Any)

Settled two hundred years before, the people were fleeing war and tyranny. Establishing a comfortable existence in the fertile, but empty valleys, they soon learned who the lands belong to. A mighty dragon called only Death, came and burned the city to the ground, and later again, and again, sending with fire also his (hers?) evil laughter and shouts of pleasure at the destruction. The survivors did not wish to leave, and decided for a new strategy.

City Image - Chedru    Locations  (City)   (Water)

The city of Chedru is one of the strangest Elventi cities in existence.  It echos the traditional giant HomeTrees and catwalks between them of "normal" Elventi city.  Yet there is no forest here.  The Elventi were deposited here, far from the green trees and mountains of their traditional homelands.  They have made their Way here.

Nestled between a plateu and a river that soon leads to the sea, is the Elventi city of Anshenestardaywadaden or more literally Place Between Sunset and Falls.

City Image - Avon    Locations  (City)   (Tundra/ Arctic)

Avon is the southmost city state in Thirdland, built in a natural protected harbor. The climate there is colder and wetter than most parts of Thirdland, so the buildings are sturdier and more utilitarian than in Amar or Antioch even.

City Image - Antioch    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Antioch is the most important city on ThirdLand. It is not the “capital”, that is Amar. It is not the “heart”, that is Avon. Antioch is it’s “Center”. It is where things “happen”. Antioch and its’ City State seems to be the “center of the modern universe”.

       By: Pariah

An example of a mythological worldview misinterpreting scientific practices occurred in Africa, where an aid organization, focusing on slowing and stabilizing population growth, distributed abacuses with red and white beads corresponding to a woman's menstrual cycle. Women were instructed to move one bead a day, only having intercourse on days represented by a white bead. However, the experiment failed, and the population grew in the households using the abacus. The women believed the abaci were magical, and that they would be protected from pregnancy by moving a white bead into the place of the red bead before intercourse.
