The Stockwood Scrolls
The citadel-city of Tymanther, Djerad Thymar is visible for miles. Indeed, the cyclopean structure’s vast, pyramidal silhouette looms like a mansion of the gods on earth. The city’s lowest foundation is a massive block of granite that rises at least 200 feet above the surrounding land, the surface of which serves as Djerad Thymar’s lowest street level. The citizens refer to this district as the Catacombs for the tunnels that wind through the foundation block.
Resting on this foundation are hundreds of massive stone pillars, each 50 feet in diameter, that support an enclosed, four-sided structure vaguely resembling a pyramid. However, the four walls do not rise to a point, but rather to a flat, upper level exposed to the elements. This is the City-Bastion, where the bulk of the city’s dragonborn live. The open spaces between the pillars form the Market Floor. The combined height of the foundation, the pillars, and the enclosed City-Bastion contribute to a structure that towers more than 1,500 feet into the sky.
