Exeunt, The Island
The city of Heishmiil is massive. Sometimes, it feels more like a country then a city. Its smooth, stony street contrast white, with the grey metal of the buildings.
There are no trees in the city. Only small plants, vegetables, and animals exist within range of the city. Few know if larger plant life exist beyond the borders, but no one has traveled far enough to find out.
The City is ruled by a single man, if indeed that is what he is. Most view him as a god. What he says is final and his word is regarded as scripture. However, only a few have seen the emperor in person and those few do not speak of his appearance.
The Emperor also rules over the churches and noble houses, and each pay their respects to his position.
The Five Noble Houses represent the core politics of the city. Each house has ideals that they follow:
- Noble House: Family Lusignan
Ideals – Life is meant to preserved.
Colors – Gold, Red
Magics – Healing, Life, Resurrection, Fire
- Noble House: Family Ottonia
Ideals – Death should be prepared for
Colors – Black, Silver
Magics – Necromancy
- Noble House: Family Gonizia
Ideals – Diplomacy is the greatest skill
Colors – Blue, Purple
Magics – Detection, Charm
- Noble House: Family Munso
Ideals – Strength is achieved through Discipline
Colors – Red, Silver
Magics – All Elemental Attack Magic
- Noble House: Family Premyslid
Ideals – Pleasure is the greatest achievement in ones life
Colors – Gold, Purple
Magics – Illusion, Charm
Those who live in the city either work in shops or do some sort of gardening. Sometimes it feels like a utopia. Very little conflict and everybody contributing to each other's welfare. However, at the edge of the city lies in the plantations. Farms that are used to harvest most of the food.
The farmers who work these fields are labeled as mad and insane.
