Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #166

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #166 

June 15th, 2023 

  • Number: 166 

  • Name:  Guild Mayors of the City-State of Carasta: Town of Lakeside 

  • Location: Western shore of Lake Loloto Pogisa 

  • Population (approx.): 500 (year-round) plus an additional 300-1000 (resort off and on season) 

  • Brief: Lakeside is the local name of the village surrounding The Palace of Light and Water (#60), the well-known resort on the shores of Lake Loloto Pogisa. Although the Churches of Vai and Malam run the resort, the Guilds of the City-State support their efforts and run the surrounding village. The Courtesans, Harpers, Innkeepers and Mercenaries Guilds hold a financial stake in the Palace, their local Guild leaders forming a village Council years ago. That council elects a Mayor, currently veteran warrior Major Adair Duru of the Mercenaries Guild, to manage the village and interface with the Churches. Major Duru would prefer to manage with a heavy hand, but his second-in-command, Specialist Captain Eun-Wood, provides the velvet glove over his ironfist.  

  • Geography: Lakeside surrounds the Palace of Light and Water on the northwest shore of Lake Loloto Pogisa between Riverbourne (#3) and Canalhead (#16). Lakeview Avenue connects all three settlements. The village is skewed to the service industry over artisan-centric businesses, importing most goods from surrounding settlements and elsewhere in Carasta. 

  • Notable guild members of Lakeside include: 

  • Adair Duru, Major and Mayor, of the Mercenaries Guild 

  • Tshepo Eun-Woo, Captain and scout (spymistress), of the Mercenaries Guild 

  • Chimwemwe Adeola, head housekeeper at the Palace, of the Innkeepers Guild 

  • Eun-Jung Pittiulaaq, stablemaster, of the Innkeepers Guild 

  • Otobong Hosni, healer specializing in recovering from “over doing it,” of the Healers Guild 

  • Olusola Ofir, master craftsman at the Palace, of the Builders Guild 

  • Happy Pua, master clown and performance artist, of the Harpers Guild
