Entry 149 - City of the Sun

Entry 149 - City of the Sun

I recently had the privilege of visiting the magnificent City of the Sun, a breathtaking destination built upon the highest plateau in the Starfall mountain range. Hovering above the clouds, this city is designed in four stunning concentric circles, each rising higher than the last, creating a tiered masterpiece of architecture and beauty.

The journey to the City of the Sun was an experience in itself. To reach the first circle, I had to follow a long spiraling road that traveled over 30km winding up the mountain. Massive stables lined this upper path where I was forced to leave my mount before entering the city. From the top path, I rode in one of the suspended carriages that are pulled up to the gates of the city at regular intervals.

As I approached the city, I was in awe of its towering marble and quartz buildings, reflecting the warm glow of the sun and casting a radiant light upon the land below. From the grand plazas at the base of the city to the soaring towers at its summit, everywhere I looked I saw breathtaking works of art and architecture. All created to honor the sun and the life it brings to the world.

The City of the Sun wasn't just a place to admire from afar, it was a city that invited me to explore and experience its many wonders. I took a stroll through its busy marketplaces, filled with exotic goods from across the land. I marveled at the grand halls of its royal palace, adorned with glittering mosaics and intricate sculptures. I climbed to the highest tier and gazed out at the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Visiting the City of the Sun was an unforgettable experience, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to witness its beauty and grandeur.

The second circle, the Sun's Glory Tier, is where the city's finest homes and temples are located. This tier is known for its grand architecture, with marble and quartz buildings reflecting the warm glow of the sun. It's a place of quiet beauty, where one can reflect on the majesty of the sun and the life it brings to the world.

~ The Third Circle
The third circle, the Radiant Summit Tier. This is the highest and most exclusive tier, where only the most powerful and influential citizens of the City of the Sun reside. From the towering spires of this tier, one can gaze out at the stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and bask in the warm glow of the sun.

At the summit of the city is the Celestial Heights Tier, home to the royal palace and the city's most prestigious schools of magic and learning. This tier is dedicated to knowledge and enlightenment, with libraries and classrooms filled with ancient tomes and powerful spells.
