- "Large trees as thick as the hoses they lay next to were beautiful, their bushy pink leaves fluttered in the wind. Each person that lived in Phylon was wealthy; this city is so expensive that mostly only nobles and the rich can afford to live there. Each house was made from solid mountain stone, the glass was elvin glass and was as strong as iron. The doors were made from oak and each had a different colour. The houses moved up onto a slope and at the top was the enormous lord castle, the large flag of the lord flapped in the wind. Bridges curved over small undergrounds, rivers and ponds surrounded large houses, scrubs and plants filled the streets with glorious colours."
- - Isabella's first thoughts upon seeing the city.
Phylon also known as Wakayio is a large city located in Üswana. It is the third largest city after: Gran Sarathal and Qhylen. Phylon has been considered since the Freedom Wars, as a dwavern city. It is one of the most heavily armed cities in Amsnorth with its walls reaching nearly one hundred feet in height. Many skilled archers and catipults lie across its walls, forever watching the sight ahead.
The past of Phylon was not all that interseting up until the point of the Freedom Wars, When King Tharik asked the dwarves of the Dwavern Kingdom to assist the rebellion against Azugon, the Lord of the Golden Halls demanded that the dwarves were granted a city within the main lands, and that their race was once more allowed to live within their lands.
Landmarks within the cityEdit
Micro's Shop of JewelsEdit
The largets and most popular shop in the city belongs to Micro Gemtone. This shop brings the highest and most valuable gems and jewels from across the seas, and as far as the Dwavern Kingdom itself.
The shop is also one of the highest taxed building in the city, with the Lord drawing almost two hundred gold pieces from it per week.
A tourtist attraction within the city, the shrine is not that popular with visitors. Its tall brillant white colours and soild steel and marbel floors are always seen the perfect colour and clean. This may be due to the fact that the temple does not see much people.
The Night-Shine InnEditThe most popular thing around the city is the inn. it is a large place of refuge that dozens of travellers use every day.
It severs cold wine, ale, water and other drinks every day, and is open without fail. There are many services that the inn offers to its guests one of which is the bed for the night. The Night-Shine durng the night time becomes a brothel, where many women from across the city go to their job.
This is something that is not known to many around the city, with the exception of Lord Oalson Thash, who agrees to this due to the amount of gold he recives.
The Garden of HopeEdit
A small garden located to the far side of the city, hidden by many houses and huts. The garden is a relaxing place where many elderly and young go to either relax or play.
There is nothing magical about the garden, although it gained its name thousands of years ago when the attack on Phylon begun during the Freedom Wars. It is said that many goblins passed throught the garden, seeking to slaughter the cityfolk. However the garden seemed to react to the inruders and the tales say that the goblins were chased off by the plants ad flowers. This thoery has not been proven.
