The city of Armun Kelisk is the political and religious capital of the Jaathoom Empire and of jaathoom1 society in the Plane of Air.2

Districts and geography

Armun Kelisk sprawls across seven stone, ice, and silver platforms, each miles across. Each platform is curved or cast to resemble the terrain of a terrestrial city of the Universe. The city configuration is a mutable thing, having occupied dozens of forms since its construction thousands of years ago. The current seven island districts are:


Trade and commerce take place along the city fringes, with platforms for docking flying vessels and perches for flying mounts. The districts of Lower City and Silversky Markets are the two most trade-focused districts within the city. The Silversky Markets district, in particular, is home to incredibly unique items that cannot be found anywhere else in the Great Beyond.4


Armun Kelisk serves as the capital of the entire Jaathoom Empire and the heart of this is the High Palaces district. The most prominent structure in the High Palaces, and all of Armun Kelisk, is the Sussurran Palace of Sultan Zafer XXXVIII, "Lord of the Heavens and All the Stars of the Mortal Void" and the direct ruler of the entire empire.5


Armun Kelisk boasts an entire district devoted to the gods and ancestors of its jaathoom inhabitants, the Godsward. The great temple of Gozreh, the House of the Infinite Strata, sits at the heart of the district and is made from magically frozen and shaped storm clouds.5
