City Image - Ageos


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.

Frozen in Time

       By: Spark

In a long-lost age, a party of adventurers are frozen into stone by the stare of some gorgon-like creature. An unscrupulous rogue, coming across the frozen party several centuries later, decides to haul off two of the statues to decorate his den. Upon his death, an artisan friend of his claims a statue and sells it to a rich merchant, passing it off as his own work. Years later, the merchant gilds the statue in bronze and re-sells it at a much higher price. After passing through the art markets for many decades, the statue ends up in the hallways of a mage academy. Imagine the chaos and confusion when a young mage's spell happens to break the curse of stone, returning the adventurer to life several centuries after his petrification! Is he interrogated by historians? Driven mad by the change of times? Or does he set off on a quest to find and liberate his other frozen party-members?
