The Holy City of Kindra
The The Holy City of Kindra, built on the Holy Mountain, is neutral despite being in West Rendin. They have laws under the High Priests from The Cult of the Weave. The mountain is connected directly to the realm of light, making it a powerful conduit for communing with the goddesses. It has been settled and used for religious practices by the Stillari of Stillendam since 200,000 A.R.M. In 420 B.R.M., the Stillari were pushed out of the area by the rise of the Grengar Kingdom, headed by King Zholani. In 375 A.R.M., the human King Louis du la Rent drove Zholani out of the lands and settled it. The Stillari refused to live among the humans but converted them to The Cult of the Weave and helped them rebuild the City under the agreement that Stillari had access to the mountain when they wished. This happens frequently, but some of the high priests are Stillari. The city hosts thousands of pilgrims from across Azrea every year. The culture is open and accepting, more so than in any other West Rendinian city. People are used to seeing Stillari of Stillendam, Dwan of the Northern Towers, Quintri of Quintrom and other humanlike races. Due to the influence of the temples on the city, there are almost no poor as the temples would put them to work or shelter them to become monks.
