Sa'Ir, Capitol of the Gyohdo Empire
(Pronounced Sah'Ihr) At first glance you'd think the castle isn't as big as it appears to be, and you would be right, it is in fact much larger, with the town melded into the mountain around the castle. The Ranval Castle, Silran Bridge and the nearby Silaug Tower were all rumored to be built by Ilta Tyro at the formation of the Gyohdo Empire. The city is divided into several districts, not including the magnificent Castle Heights where Ran'Val Castle, home to the Throne of the Nine is situated. Castle Heights Home to the Ranval Castle and the Throne of the Nine, the Castle Heights is also home to the main headquarters of The Cobalt Flame as well as a training facility that has been used by both The Cobalt Flame and the Val'Guard, the specially trained royal guard of not only Sa'Ir but of the Ranval Castle, over the generations. Noble Dream The District Surrounding the Castle Heights, this is where the major Noble families that make their home in Sa'Il Reside. The district is also home to a rather impressive theater. Cobbled Markets A mish-mash of markets built together seemingly without any reason behind the planning, the cobblestone streets lead to shops pressed against each other keeping upright by the tension o being beside each other. The Cobbled Markets host many interesting shops though most locals will say Zalar's Antique Emporium is a shop everyone should stop by. Artisans Alley A large district of crafters and smiths, Artisans Alley is well known for the make of its crafts. A buyer should be wary though as the Artisans Alley is not to far from the Carved Slums. Travelers Bluff A series of hostels, inns, and taverns built on the bluffs overlooking the sea. Most people who come to visit Sa'Ir stay in one of those that are located in this district of the city. The Rise A district for the middle class located near Artisan's Alley, Traveler's Bluff and the Cobbled Markets. While not as ritzy as the Noble Dream, it is still a league above the Carved Slums. Carved Slums A shanty area of the city carved into the earth and rock, those that live here are the poorest of the poor, and even those not criminals are considered as such for living there. Tower Circle A small collection of houses, smaller markets, and little known craftsman that formed around the tower for ease of access. It is also home to the Silaug Tower, a massive lighthouse with an observatory at the very top. Holy Domain Between the Noble Dream, the Guard Quarter and the Cobbled Markets lays the Holy Domain, a small district comprised of fourteen churches and the housing for the priests and holy people that attend the churches. It is also the location of one of the two Breachways that exist on Mah'Lo. Guard Quarter Main barracks for the guards, soldiers and knights that live in Sa'Ir, it is also home to the armory and the Crescent Forge.
