Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #10

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States

Jan 10th 2023 

  • Number: 10 

  • Name: East Point Light 

  • Location: Easternmost point of Ceannar 

  • Population (approx.): 12 

  • Brief: Some version of a lighthouse has existed at East Point since the founding of the Ta’arna Empire and perhaps longer. It is rumored that the first lighthouse fell into the ocean when the cliff collapsed in an earthquake. The replacement structure, a single stone tower, was upgraded and modified by Decree during the Empire’s reign over six centuries ago. East Point Light is run by the Navigators and Sailors Guilds, but repairs are usually funded by the City-State.  

  • Geography: East Point Light, standing upon a rocky outcropping about 100 feet (30 meters) above the rocky shores and the ocean, is now comprised of a single large and tall tower about 150 feet (45 meters) high. It is accompanied by several outbuildings including a residence, guest house and several storage sheds. East Point Light is supplied by nearby villages. Current residents consist of two families including the lightkeeper herself and a weather finding priest who endeavors to predict upcoming storms to warn the locals and the Guilds.
