"No we are not controlled by Cyan Stone! I mean, we let them decide some things, but... that just seems easier"
Located on the middle of the southwestern coast of Ruh island
, Cyan stone is the biggest settlement on this island and acts as the centre of operations when the people from the scattered, independent towns need to take unified decisions on important topics.
Cyan Stone gets his name from the vast deposits of turquoise
stone that are mined on the closest area of the mountain range, and that is used to decorate many places in the city, from the monuments and main buildings to parts of the roads, and even some house walls and posts.
The city is divided into three main "areas", the Port Watch
at the west looks at the sea and contains the port, warehouses, and big workshops. The Sky Watch
, at the north area, houses most of the population on smaller buildings and is closer to the fields that can be found just out of the city close to the northwest coastal area. At the south, the Peninsula Watch
houses the most elegant buildings, including theatre halls, houses of pleasure, big taverns, inns, etc, as well as some bigger houses.
At the southwest corner of the Peninsula Watch area, there is a big, open and well-manicured field known as the Alzufhar rest. The area is used for the alzufhars
to have a secure place to rest and graze, with freshwater and sleeping stables. It is enclosed at the south and west with fences to prevent predators from going in, but there are several openings at the north and east sides for the alzufhars to freely roam the city if so they desire.
Close to the city's center there is a very tall tower, known nowadays as the Cyan Tower of the Stars
. Before the High Rust
destroyed the top half, the tower was known as the "Cyan Tower of the RuhRic", as it housed the RuhRic
of the city and its family, and acted as the meeting hall for the RuhRics of the island's towns when meetings ensued.
Once the High Rust passed, taking with him Cyan Stone's RuhRic, most of her family and half of the tower, a new, horizontally-arranged building known as the RuhRic House was constructed in front of the city centre's plaza and set to take the role of the tower. As for the tower, plans were made to dismantled it, until a council of astronomers urged the RuhRic to restore it and turn it into the most majestic astronomy observatory in the archipelago.
