High Aranthaes, the top tier terrace of the city, is a true masterpiece of beauty and elegance. The marble homes of the city’s elite sit majestically atop the mountain, with tended gardens filled with exotic flowers and glistening fountains. The air is filled with the sweet aroma of blooming flowers, and the sound of soft, soothing music drifts gently through the streets.

The centerpiece of High Aranthaes is the grand staircase that runs all the way up the mountain to the High Temple of Lady Bune. This magnificent structure is made entirely of white marble, with intricate carvings and delicate statues adorning every step.

As one climbs the staircase, they are treated to stunning panoramic views of the city below, with the faint distant sounds of music and laughter floating up from the lower tiers.

The temple itself is a marvel of architectural beauty, with soaring columns and intricate mosaics depicting the story of Lady Bune’s transformation. The throne of Lady Bune sits at the heart of the temple, a gleaming golden chair with delicate engravings and precious gems adorning every surface.

The air inside the temple is cool and refreshing, with the scent of incense filling the nostrils and the soft glow of candlelight casting gentle shadows on the walls. The temple is a place of peace and tranquility, where the faithful can come to meditate and seek the guidance of Lady Bune.

High Aranthaes is a world away from the bustle and chaos of the lower tiers, a place where the wealthy and powerful can retreat to a world of beauty and serenity. But beneath the surface of this seemingly perfect paradise lies a web of intrigue and power struggles, as the elite jockey for position and influence in the shadow of Lady Bune’s throne.
