There is history in every inch of its soil. Sar is where legacies begin.
Sar is the capital of the Lakontey Region.
Located in the north of Lakontey in Ninava, Sar is a seaside city with numerous cliffs and valleys. It is notable for its rough rock beach, the vast ocean to the north, and a sacred forest to the northeast nestled at the foot of the illustrious Lakontey Mountain. The forest is sacred to the Daisuke Clan.
Sar is a massive seaside city with a sloped area surrounded by two massive cliffs with a history Japanese palace on one of the northern cliffs. Once built to signal the might of the Japanese Imperial rule, it is now but a historical legacy left behind as lessons to future generations.
A bird's eye view of Sar allows for a view from the top, where a crescent shaped mountain range decorates the outer borders of Sar. The edges of this mountain range extends to the sea, as if protecting the city from what lies outside. In the middle of the two cliffs, therein lies a slope that is around two kilometres wide extending downwards into the ocean, leading to a large rocky beach. The end of the northeastern cliffs are geographically uneven, with valleys scattered about.
The slope is two kilometers wide, and is home to a third of the Sar citizens who make their living off of fishing and other sea-related professions. There are houses nestled downwards along the slope that leads directly to a rocky beach.
The closer the residents are to the foot of the mountain range, the closer one approaches the vast farmlands that follow along the crescent shape, allowing for vegetation of all kinds to thrive in the fertile soil. At the northeastern area, the farmlands connect the northeastern cliffs to the sacred forest that lies at the bottom of Lakontey mountain.
The northeastern cliff, just across where the palace stands, is connected to the tallest mountain, Lakontey mountain through some valleys and eventually, farmlands, that preface the sacred forest. The forest consists of woodlands that seem to protect the mountain, its looming beckon appearing unable to promise safe passage into the paths that lead to the upper areas of Lakontey mountain. On the side of the mountain that faces out into the sea, a huge cliff is located. It settles in to the mountainside nicely that it is not too conspicuous, but its particular shaping and position allows one to watch over Sar from a high standpoint.
Sar's residents comprise of generations of fishers and farmers who have embraced modern-day technology, allowing for the two industries to flourish in Sar.
The architecture of Sar is vibrant, with the main city centre boasting limestone paved streets and clay tiles for the roofs. The further out to the farmlands area, there is a progressing change of the roof material, with most citizens utilizing thatch roofing as compared to clay.
The sloped area has a different architecture than the city center's and the area surrounding it. Between some of the houses are slopes or stairs made of polished rock that have been built around the houses to allow passage into the beach. Some of the houses are tucked by the side of the cliffs.
Above the slope is the city area, with a city center that lies in the middle and buildings that expand outwards. In the middle, high rise buildings and commercial districts don the main area. Further out, residential neighbourhoods and apartments are where citizens of Sar reside and live out their personal sphere. These residential areas also extend as far out as downwards of the slope that leads to the beach, though the houses by the slope are far simpler than the ones near the city. These buildings extend as far south as the inner carvings of the crescent moon-shaped mountain range, and some as far north as the cliffs that overlook the sea.
At the end of the slope, smoothly polished rocks slowly begin to be replaced by sands. In the midst of these grains of gold, massive rocks jut from various places. By the cliffs and the rocks, there are stands and huts chock full of fishing equipment pivotal for the fishermen of Sar. Several boats are bobbing on the waves by the beach, perched to wooden docks specifically made to anchor boats. On the northeastern part of the beach, more illustrious docks have been built for purposes such as shipping or travel.
On the northwestern cliff, a once-derelict castle, now restored as a historical legacy, stands tall against the winds and storms, looming over the rest of Sar. Its view extends as far out as the vast but narrow farmlands that lie between the city and the sacred forest nestled on the bottom of the Lakontey mountain. With Lakontey mountain being the only organic object that provides a watchful eye to the Lakontey region, the palace is the only manmade object upon which one can climb to the top and loom over the entirety of Sar. Surrounded by gates adorned with golden markings, the palace is a complex that houses multiple areas of interests, such as barracks and a training area. The only way to access the palace area is a downhill slope that connects directly to the main town area located on flat ground.
