City on the Shoulders
High on the hills stands the city of Axlar
…a place of ancient origins and a long, drawn out, slow, tenacious, “is that still there?” ending. No one who doesn’t live there can understand why anybody would want to. And that’s if they think about the place at all.
But there is some pleasure to be had there, and riches, too, if you’re of the right height and parentage. And if doing something unnoticed is your goal, well… There might be no better city for it in the world.
