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.

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
