The Crescent Sea
Altara Imperia is a sight to behold. The crown jewel of the Altara empire is every bit as lavish and extravagant as one would expect from the people who once conquered the entire known world. Its pristine and segmented streets form a lattice across the entire floating island. Only several large opulent buildings break the pattern as well as two large parks. In the geographic center of the city stand the massive imperial palace, which can be seen from almost any point in the city. Each cardinal direction from the palace is marked by an elaborate and important structure. To the north side of the island in the grand Imperial Theater; where one can see renditions of famous victories and legendary feats. Down the steps of the theater is execution square, where all traitors and mages meat their fate. To the east is the Arena. In the great Altaran Arena the greatest gladiators and heroes from across the empire fight to the death for the amusement of the populous. To the south is the magnificent court. Where the elite figures of the empire discuss matters and make decisions sure to shape the fate of the world. Finally, to the west lies the immense statue of Empress Tara I, in all her glory.
