Iganjojo is the Shafaian capital city, located in the Sound of Mayowa at the center of Shafai. It is a city built out of and around the trees of the Shafaian Jungles.
Major LocationsIganjojo is a fairly large city, however it is not as built out or wide as other capitals of the world. This is due to the fact that the Shafaians have a great respect for nature and wish not to disturb it. Therefore, instead of building the city out, they build it up into the trees, making Iganjojo incredibly tall, while not taking up too much land in comparison.
Gior HallGior Hall is the name for the central tree in Iganjojo. It is entirely hollowed out, and serves as the home for the Chancellor and the center of all government over the Shafaian people. It is a towering tree, though not the tallest, it still serves as the largest place of interest for visitors.
Port of JolynThe port of Iganjojo, which rarely has ships enter due to the Tower Tree shields on the eastern side of the Sound of Mayowa. The Port is not always out, but instead is made up of the trees near the coast of Iganjojo. These trees can be lowered down into docks, but when they are upright they serve as homes for some Fairies who live in Iganjojo.
The Jonn ChambersThe Jonn Chambers are were many of the Ahunṣọ of the TI Mayowa stay. Here, they can channel the ancestors better, as the Jonn Chambers are open to the sky and, thus, the Heavens. Outsiders are allowed in when seeking an audience with the Ahunṣọ, but if not then even citizens of Iganjojo are not permitted entry, as too many visitors can disrupt the ancestors.
Sept of SephConnected to the Jonn Chambers, the Sept of Seph is a place where people can worship Mayowa without needing to go to her temple. It is an outdoor location marked with religious iconography related to Mayowa, where people can kneel in the sand and pray, make art in Mayowa's name, or go to the Jonn Chambers to speak with the ancestors.
FoundingNeized Shaka was around during the founding of the Human Capital City of Nerodil, but he disagreed with Gellark Lionrage and instead went out with a group of others who went along with his plans. He traveled for some time, against all warnings, to Shafai with his followers on three boats: the Kasai, the Vaal, and the Benue. Benue, with Shaka on it, was sunk, but he was saved by the Captain of the Kasai, Babajide Kan. The Humans under Shaka and Kan found the land where Iganjojo would one day stand and decided to build a city around it with the teachings from Mayowa. Shaka would be killed by the Devil Profit, and Babajide Kan would then go on to help in Iganjojo's construction beyond that. The framework of the city as it stands now is all thanks to the plans of the ship captain and Chancellor of the Shafaians, Babajide Kan.
