Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #104
April 14th, 2023
Name: The Hedron Assembly
Location: Ruins of the City of Natroscha in the western Wastelands
Population (approx.): None
Brief: One of the largest cities of the Ta’arnan Empire was Natroscha on the western plains. About 800 years ago, as factions gathered strength to openly contest each other for control of the Empire, Natroscha was home to close relatives of the emperor. One day the opposition breached the city’s defenses and manifested a huge multifaceted hedron shape in the central plaza. The entity, a 20-meter-wide thing made of elsewhere, then manifested dozens of smaller versions of itself, in various sizes from 1 meter to 5 meters wide, throughout the city. Those shapes, formed of almost indestructible materials, roll and flew through town slashing, burning or crushing all they touched. Within hours Natroscha was empty but for the massive thing slowly rolling in circles about the plaza. Centuries later, the Assembly remains in the center of the ruined city. Its “children” only appear when creatures or foolhardy adventures cross the city limits.
Geography: The ruins of Natroscha can be found in the western Wastelands, a bit south of west from South Plains Tar (#68). Very few buildings remain standing so the Hedron Assembly can easily be seen from beyond the city limits. The multi-faceted sphere is colored silver and grey. When backlit by the sun, one can see numerous other shapes inside the entity. It appears to be, to date, unaffected by time or weather.
