Aziran is a fantasy world.
The Lirithi culture is modeled on ancient Mesopotamia. It is agriculture-based, pre-industrial and they have tools for agriculture, pottery, creating weapons, carts, etc. They are city-states, which means they have walled cities with farmlands and communities that surround them. The Lirithi people trade widely for materials they lack. While they are sited next to a large river system, they are also on relatively flat plains, so they lack hardwood trees, stone building material and metal deposits. What they have an abundance of are clay, and, using a system of canals, land for agriculture.
Within the walled city of Nakesh is a walled temple complex which contains the temple of the city’s goddess, Yanara, upon a tall platform, smaller temples to other gods/goddesses related to her, and a few other buildings, including the living quarters of the priests and priestesses.
The walled city itself is huge. Other than the temple complex it contains several large districts each having homes, their own smaller temples, roadside shrines, bakeries, beer shops, metalsmiths, etc. There is a main canal that runs through the middle of the city.
That’s it for now. Hope to have more soon.
