Locales/Floristica

From EHOL

Floristica is the capital city of the nation of Roshtaria and an important hub of the Alliance, in both financial and political respects.

The city itself is located inland from the Holy River of God, along one of its smaller tributaries, still making it a viable seaport and highly accessible for traders to bring in goods. The city also sits at the foot of the Holy Mountains of God, giving the city much needed protection to the north. The rest of the city is surrounded by dense forest and various waterways.

Appearance wise, the city is a monument to architecture and artistic flare. Situated along both sides of a wide central avenue, tall towers capped with minarets of gold dot the skyline. Closer to the ground, the city boast large residential areas with tenements made of white stone and a bustling bazaar style marketplace where merchants haggle and exchange. Indeed, Floristica is the place to be if one is looking for the lively bustle of humanity.

The centerpiece of the city is obliviously the royal palace, which sits in center of the city. This is where the business of governing Roshtaria rests. This is also where the many of the Alliance leaders meet to discuss current Alliance policies and debate the current state of the government. Serving this dual purpose means that the palace is often as lively as the marketplace as dignitaries are often coming and going at all times, and it is often the focus of all eyes, both friendly and unfriendly, in a time of crisis.
