Exalted: Chains of the First Age
Yaris lies in the far southeast of creation, days away from the nearest major town in The Scavenger Lands. It relies mostly of agriculture (rice paddies south of the city on the river’s opposite bank) and some minor trade with the surrounding world via the river. Upstream there is a massive dam said to have been built by the Shogunate in the Golden Age of the Dragonbloods, and then largely forgotten. It is rarely visited, as the lake behind it is said to be haunted by the spirits of hungry ghosts.
There is also a neglected shrine to a water elemental when Yaris still worshiped the small gods. The city currently houses a small Immaculate temple, but most citizens observe the religion of the realm out of courtesy to the kind if zealously dull monk who resides there. Most of Yaris’ people are more concerned with surviving then the socio-political-religious interests of the Realm.
