Westcrown Notable Sites
The following are some of the better-known and interesting places in the city.
A. (#1) The Korradath: Once the seat of Imperial Cheliax, this massive fortified castle remains an impressive sight, marred only by poor upkeep. Today, it is still used for offices, temporary lodgings, or neutral meeting places for nobles, rich traders, and ambassadors from far-off ports who need to be impressed or protected from exposure to “the common rabble on shore.”
B. (#2) Vaneo Drovenge: This massive three-storied manor, unlike many buildings in Westcrown, gets scrubbed clean by its slaves every Fireday, so its green marble arches and black slate shingles glisten compared to its surroundings.
C. (#3) Vira Oberigo: This walled estate has been the primary holding of House Oberigo for centuries.
-. (#4) Sostarlannex
D. (#16) Miratanza: “The Floating Market” allows islandbound servants to shop for food and goods for their noble masters. Anchored in place, the numerous platforms allow vendors to rent spaces or simply sell directly from their own craft.
E. (#28) The Pleatra: This slave market is one of the largest building complexes in the sector.
F. (#36) Taranik House: The Order of the Rack rotates a new complement of Hellknights to the local Paralictor here every other Fireday. The official commander of Taranik House is Paralictor Gonville Chard (male human).
G. (#41) Aroden’s Rise: This large hill is now covered with derelict shrines and a giant statue of the dead god.
H. (#43) The Arodennama: Standing 90 feet tall from its base atop Aroden’s Rise and shaped from massive blocks of white marble, the statue predates recorded history in the region and all other structures in Westcrown.
I. (#44) Qatada Nessudidia: The largest temple to Asmodeus in Westcrown, the cathedral’s crystalline skylight glows a sinister red at all times.
