The city of Crossroads sits at the base of the Grand Spire, a large protrusion out of the earth that is home to the Temple of the Elements. The city was originally founded to support pilgrims on their journeys to the temple, but quickly turned into a center of trade, communication, and community for the island. People of all races, tribes, and ages live in this city, for the most part living in harmony and enjoying the richness the island provides. There is an organized militia that guards both the temple and the city, but their main concerns are usually just wild creatures and the random domestic dispute.
The city has 3 distinct districts:
The market is a large bazaar with countless stalls selling the wares from all across the island. This is usually where you will find most visitors to the city.
The residential district is where you find the Inns that house visitors and the many villages that house the residents of the city.
The temple district houses places of worship for each of the gods, as well a an exit that leads to the path up to the temple itself. The temple is a good 4 miles from the town exit.
