The colorful, many-tiered pagoda city of Niswan is breath-taking when seen from the great seas that surround her harbor. The silk banners that furl in the cold wind are all the more beautiful when beheld from the winding, red-stone streets that crisscross the forbidding landscape. A city of quiet majesty, Niswan is home to travelers and scholars from across Golarion — and beyond. In the High-Holy District, gold-draped eunuchs sweep fallen snow into vast drifts while dark-skinned princes, trains of virgins in tow, make offerings of wine and poetry to great marble idols of unknown gods. Along the streets of the Grand Chronicler’s Circle, scrolls and parchments in dozens of tongues are drafted, bought, and sold by perhaps the wisest and most learned minds in the world.
