Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #114

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #114 

April 24th, 2023 

  • Number: 114 

  • Name: Rainbelow  

  • Location: Where the Gata Tele Ley Line crosses the north coast of Ceannar 

  • Population (approx.): 300 (dry season) to 800+ (storm season) 

  • Brief: Years ago, Rainbelow was a simple farming village of a different name near the coast of north Ceannar. One day a coastal storm rumbled through, the wind driving the rain through the Ley Line overhead. The legend relates that day the rains drenched an old farmer and the next morning he was healed of all manners of ills, years added to his life. Years passed, another storm drenched the village and every leaf of a copse of trees changed to all colors of the rainbow. The stories travelled far and wide and soon, when the rains came, so did the hopeful. They brought buckets, troughs and all manner of devices to catch the rain and rarely, they were rewarded with a small amount of magical fluid with unusual properties related to healing, alchemy or crafting. Predicting the next storm is now the most important job in Rainbelow. Local priests of Vai, divines, weather-watchers, seers and astrologers both compete and cooperate to accurately make that prediction. 

  • Geography: Rainbelow can be found 3 miles inland from the north coast of Ceannar, near the apex of the Gata Tele Ley Line before it descends to meet the ground at Everblossom Fields (#79). It resembles an ordinary farming village but for 3 features, the first being a large chapel to the God of Water and a large chantry of the Arcane Guild, the second being a large number of inns for visitors, and the third is that every rooftop and surface under or nearly under the Ley Line is designed to catch water when it rains.
