Waystation and the Wayward Guard
While the Waystation exists within the kingdom of Burmecia, it operates on an entirely different government beyond the Cyf’s family rule and for that reason is usually the choice of settlement to those who migrate into Burmecia.
The underground city of the Waystation is a massive, sprawling urban environment situated beneath the Wayward Mountains in the northern half of Burmecia. The rains of Burmecia do run into the underground dwelling, but are directed away by a series of aqueducts that empty into rivers deep in the bowels of the mountain.
If ever there was a modern society in Elyu, it would be here; all the creature comforts can be found in The Waystation should one look hard enough. All who enter the mountain go through the main entrance and are subject to be documented upon their entry or they arrive through the Light Station.
The Waystation serves as a central trader’s hub for the entirety of the world and is a completely neutral zone for all to exist within. While this does not mean that dangerous people and crime is not possible within the Waystation, only that it proves to be the safest place for all to live because of the enforcement of the Wayward Guard. Men and women alike give their lives to serve the people of the Waystation and enforce a strict tangent of protection for all those that enter the Waystation. One only needs to call out for the Wayward Guard and they will find themselves surrounded by aid at a moment’s notice.
The Light Station
For those who cannot travel by foot, or exist continents away from the Waystation, there is an alternative means of entry through the Light Station. The Light Station is a portal nexus which connects the Waystation and the outer kingdoms of Elyu, allowing for those to traverse to the trader city with less effort.
