Ghost of Kalidria
The White City is the capital of Feduria. It is perched on high cliff walls on the south eastern coast of Feduria. The city is built of white washed stone that is smooth to the touch. It is a ringed city with each of the districts of the city with a higher wall than the last ring. The outer city wall is 20 feet high, with each subsequent wall 20 feet taller with the Palace District having a 80ft tall wall.
The palace sits overlooking the bay below and the architecture is dominated by archways and domes. There is plenty of airflow provided to the capital’s palace due to the hot and humid climate of the land. In the open design there are many gardens that have been cultivated over many centuries to be breathtaking.
At the base of the cliff is the bay that serves as the sea side entry point to the city. The bay is home to 13 statues, one for each of the founders of the Elves. Some of these individuals are now renown gods. Each statue is carved from marble, and each hold a flag that bears the family crest. These statues are of:
