Stoa is a grand and old city sitting on the continent’s northwestern mountains, where the elevation is just high enough to crisp the air, but low enough for citizens to have easy access the valley for farming. Not surprisingly, Stoa is a city of carved stone. Often, buildings and homes are carved into mountain faces which are then connected via sloping networks of delicately molded bridges and stairs.
Stoa has it all culturally and economically. Citizen occupations range from any sort of artisan trade, to locked away academic researchers. Notably, Stoa takes a large amount of pride in its Philosophers. All races are welcome. Food is plentiful, violence is managed by fair law, and trade to other cities is constant.
The leaders of the city have worked hard for years to maintain the city’s standard of living and peace despite the changes in the world. Citizens have been made to stand united in their mindset, and Stoa has a very unique culture and way-of-life because of it.
