    Private Tales Cold Stone Hearts

    Annuakat, lower levels. Beneath the coastal city were a network of catacombs and natural caverns. The upper tier were used as storage. Below this lay the dungeons for the worst prisoners, where no light shines. And below even this? The bones of the ancient city. Former houses and walls. In the...

    Annuakat, Amol-Kalit The Royal Palace - First Chamber of the Imperial Mortician Gaheris removed his mask. It was a large and ungainly thing: wooden, beak-shaped, and filled with all manner of pleasant-smelling herb. Not a necessity for the work he did, but it offered a welcome respite. He wiped...

    The Annuakat Fight Pits roared with excitement and cheer, the crowds gathering and dispersing among the arena's vast array of seats.

    Open Chronicles Both Eyes Open [Annuakat]

    Palace district. Sparing courtyard. Creeping ivy broke the glare of alabaster walls at the far end of the courtyard.

    Completed Idle Hands

    An extravagant, bandage wrapped figure floated listlessly through the halls of a section of the royal palace of Annuakat, a look of abject boredom marking her face. The woman glided past the profligate architecture in near disdain. Indoor fountains with cool, fresh water broke the silence of the...

    Open Chronicles Cleanliness is close to Godliness.

    God's wash. At least, that's what it meant in the common tongue. It was the God-King's private bath-house. Or, at least, it had been made so ever since he had come into power. It was quite possibly the largest, the priciest and most extravagant he had ever seen or experienced. No where else...

    Much had changed. No longer was he crushed beneath the feet of oppression and grief, blindly flailing through the trial of life with hardly an inkling of what lay ahead.

    Completed Guild of Red, Guild of Gold

    “Bring them to me, Grozkalla. Alive and unspoilt.” “Yes, your majesty.” Three days later, the Sereti Ogre came back to Gerra’s dungeon beneath the ziggurat in Annuakat, dragging a man in each hand. After the cell doors squealed shut it was a few hours before torchlight illuminated the dark...

    Private Tales Vintage

    A country estate lay several miles east of the resplendent azure walls of Annuakat, within the verdant delta of the Baal-Duru, and sat on a bluff overlooking that great river. Vineyards stretched along the back of the slope. Several serfs worked the vineyards, checking the growth of the...

    Private Tales The Gardens of Narmaka

    A tall figure in a black tunic wandered the palace gardens alone. Although this section of the gardens sat upon one of the highest points on the royal ziggurat, large hedges provided privacy from onlookers. Kneeling down, Gerra, for it was he, caressed the petals of a purple lily, the sacred...
