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.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
