Nihliesh

Description


An ancient machine, likely once a mobile vehicle-city of some kind, lies half buried in the caked earth. More than two hundred years ago, nomads explored its interior and found—among other things—a pair of massive devices that they brought back to life. These resurrected mechanisms produce a thick, orange-brown fluid now called churn. Churn can be shaped and molded easily, and once dry, it’s harder than stone but fairly light. The nomads began to build atop the half-buried vehicle, raising curving towers, impossible spans, and shapely domes of churn painted in vibrant colors.

Locations


Summer Market

Tucked into the skeleton of a derelict structure, the Summer Market is five floors of traders and craftspeople packed so tight that there's barely enough room to walk along the thoroughfares and paths. The floors are referred to as circles (although the building is not circular)

The Red Gullies

Red Spirit

An cube-shaped building with six circular holes bored into the front. The holes have been covered and filled and now serve as the building's doors and windows. The Red Spirit is a popular haunt of the second tier sentries, where they can be found drinking, gambling, and fighting.

Gavresh's Office

A large square room,  talking up the entire upper floor of the Sweet Tallow Brothel. Gavrash sits on chez lounge in the centre of the room. Dotted all around are cushions and pillows for the concubines and prostitutes he surrounds himself with.
