Hy-Pointe

Hy-Pointe or “High Point” gets its name for being the highest point of the city. The Pointe is also the name of the signal tower (now in disrepair) that stood on the hill.

Hy-Pointe or “High Point” gets its name for being the highest point of the city. The Pointe is also the name of the signal tower (now in disrepair) that stood on the hill. This watchtower gives a commanding view of the surrounding lands. A pity that it is only used by lovers, kids, and curious people.

It is a mixed area, businesses and homes. The neighborhood is middling, not rich, nor poor.  Most of the businesses on this triangular shaped hill include Hy-Pointe, Hy, or Cloud in their name, so Hy-Pointe Inn, Hy-King’s Tavern, Hy-Clayworks, and Cloud Silver Works. The people usually work on the hill at the numerous shops and works.

There are a few businesses by The Pointe. The Hy-Pointe Inn, a small temple (the only establishment not called Hy something, as calling itself the Hy-Temple would be blasphomous), and the Hy-Pointe Scriptorium where scribes copy manuscripts for others.

The Houses (and other buildings here), are narrow, long, and usually dug into the hill. They are one to two level shoeboxes, if shoeboxes had been invented yet. Each block forms a tier that faces out towards the lower city.

The streets are straight and paved. They run mostly parallel along the hillside. The sidewalks are almost all stairs. The few roads that go up and down are quite steep only go up and down each tier. This means one has to zig and zag up the hill to reach the appropriate tier.  The local kids make a good penny by carting stuff up and around the hill.

Two Minerals

       By: Murometz

Yupiorite

Also called "pale-yellow witch" by alchemists, this mineral is known to possess a peculiar attribute. When found, a Yupiorite will appear the palest yellow. Rather than crystalline in structure, Yupiorite occurs in weird, smooth, ovaline shapes, as if already carved by skilled hands to serve as ring or necklace ornaments. Yupiorite somehow detects and reacts to mood. When the wearer of the gem is content, calm, and happy, the stone will remain the palest yellow. As the person gets more excited, angry, or otherwise stimulated, the mineral will darken progressively to a dark corn-yellow in color. Why the gem reacts this way to sentient mood swings, is still debated by gemologists and alchemists alike.

It is said that the Elven Halls of Vala-Aluduwy are resplendent with wall-sized mirrors of pure Yupiorite, showing plainly and ironically, the emotions of everyone present, despite the Elven love of restraint and stoicism.

Aragdulose

"Cave-grass" or "cave-pine" is a deep forest green in color, rare and often mistaken for other minerals, though otherwise mundane. Crystals form into tiny, ultra-thin, needle-like clusters by the hundreds of thousands, creating vast dark green bursts and structures, resembling evergreen conifers, if viewed by any sort of light. Despite its ephemeral shape, Aragdulose is only second to a diamond in hardness.

Dwarves are said to keep these mineral "trees" in their homes, putting them up during festive family holidays, leaving presents beneath them, for kin to open.
