Of Books and Things

By:

Of books and wonderous things contained, that is what this region covers. It is a place for the lovers of books, scrolls, and folios. In addition to knowledge captured, here are the libraries, bookshops, scriptorium, and datastores, with the men and women who work with books and scrolls.

All things that have to do with books, scrolls, folios, and the ilk have a home here.

All things that have to do with books, scrolls, folios, and the ilk have a home here.

Here is the place for books, scrolls, codices, folios, data files, and all things that are "books".

Here is the place where books are created, kept, and even sold, so libraries, scriptoriums, print shops, and so on.

Here is where the people with books as an intricate part of their lives... authors, writers, book sellers, scribes, librarians, sages, professors, and such.

Here is the place for magical items related to books, mystic creatures that impact books, and all such things are found. 

So welcome to The Realm of Books.

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
