Orost is a trade town of increasing importance in Iobaria. Founded in 780 AR, Orost is the only safe stop on the roads between Mirnbay and Orlov, and thus a site of great importance to the various factions vying for control of Iobaria. Envoys and diplomats from Mirnbay, Orlov, Kridorn, and Veka frequent the town alongside those seeking goods, and local law enforcement is forced to protect local citizens from the intrigue and battles these visitors bring.
At the centre of Orost stands a massive wood and stone building that houses the current komar. The temple is a human construct built over over a massive, ancient stone temple. The mosaics on the floor of this temple feature stars, and while the town and its fortifications have taken on a rough star shape over the years, it is from these mosaics that Orost gets its name.1
