Shattered Star Campaign
Home to many merchants and comfortable families, Naos is disparagingly called the “New-Money District” by local aristocrats . Despite the disdainful comments of the elite, Naos is one of the most welcoming and well kept parts of Magnimar.
In the relatively small neighborhood of Vista, highclass shops, restaurants, businesses, and the offices of mercantile concerns perch atop the Seacleft’s edge, while Grand Arch is the largest of Naos’s neighborhoods, stretching from the Twins’ Gate to the heart of the upper cliff. Many of Magnimar’s middle class and simple shop owners live here comfortably.
Defiant’s Garden Directly upon the Seacleft stand several estates of the city’s more daring aristocrats, but even the most lavish ofthese are outshined by Defiant’s Garden, diplomatic resort and home of Lord-Mayor Haldmeer Grobaras.
Arvensoar The tallest structure in Magnimar and a wonder in a city of architectural feats , the Arvensoar stands approximately 400 feet tall, climbing the entire length of the Sea cleft and extending nearly a hundred feet above Naos itself. In the simplest senses , the great tower is the garrison of the city’s watch and small military, as well as being a quick, city-controlled connection between the Shore and the Summit. Beyond having these mundane uses, the tower is a symbol of the city’s unity, ambition, and history.
Founder’s Flame This magical fountain of flame consists of a pedestal that supports a bronze bowl filled with green oil. A nimbus of fire burns perpetually in the bowl, changing to an arcane rhythm and cycling color from yellow to orange to violet to blue. Benches surround the remarkable fountain at a safe distance.
The Guardians Just within Twins’ Gate stand the Guardians, one of the city’s larger monuments. These 200 foot tall colossi depicting the young heroes Cailyn and Romre Vanderale face each other with burning staves held high, forming a giant arch.
The Triodea Upon Star Silver Plaza-where abalone shell inlays create a scene of thousands of stars-stands the Triodea, the most renowned playhouse and concert hall in Magnimar. This single building houses three performance halls: the Grand Stage for operas and plays, an acoustically perfect concert hall called the Stonewall, and the Aerie- a raised, rooftop stage for soloists.
