City Image - Ageos

By:

The entire city has a soft glow: the reflected back light from the massive light egg stone up the estuary.

Ageos is a good sized coastal city. There is much traffic in and out of it’s long and narrow bay. The long arm of Ageos (which forms the bay) is rough and rocky, formed by large rocks rolled down Ageos’s main feature. The only building on the arm is a tall light tower. 

Ageos is build around a small estuary that feeds into the bay. The Givan river is not broad or deep, but it is fairly swift most times of the year. 

The buildings here follow the same general design.  They are all rectangular, paralell along the streets or paths. Most are two stories. They are all washed with a yellowish white plaster (proof against the erroding power of salt) and topped with red tiles. The windows are square and glass.

The streets are narrow and roughly paved.  The weather is mostly dry, except for the morning fog, so it is seldom a problem. The streets are parallell to the coast, as most of the streets are squeeze in between the great rock and the lesser ones.

Ageos’s most striking features, and the basis for its name, is the huge rock that serves as the backdrop for the city. It is a giant rock, a significant part of a mountain that rolled down the Givan valley before the time of Elventi. It is roughly shaped like an egg. It is some 80 imperial strides tall and 50 strides wide.  It is not a cliff, it is obviously a rock.  The estuary runs a dozen or so strides to its left. 

There is a large tumble of rock, which for a loose cliff to the other side of the estuary. The tumble runs along the coast as well. These two sets of rocks and the bay sandwich the houses of the city.

Okay this one is kind of cool, but not nearly up to the standard you have set for yourself with the others.

Nomadic Library

       By: Murometz

Saril had a dream. To open a library in the windswept wastes of Naarish, so that the people of the many villages and towns spread over the hundreds of leagues of desert could discover the joys of his books. For a whole year he kept his library open, but alas, almost no one came.

That is when Saril came up with his new idea. If people didn't travel to read his books, he would travel to them! Saril closed his library, hired a team of twelve camels, loaded up the beasts with all of his books and proceeded to invent the first nomadic library.

Now children and adults alike, looked forward to hearing the bells of Saril's camels as he entered their villages, as he tirelessly traversed the deserts in a long circuitous route, visiting every village and town he came across, in turn. It came to pas that Saril's traveling library came to some fame, and that is how the folk of Naarish became literate.

A word of warning though. Naarish has only six thousand volumes. He deals with those that lose or steal his tomes quite "harshly", by bypassing the town or village which was responsible for losing one of his books for that calendar year.
