Of Swords & Crowns
Here, the sights of the city (if not necessarily the sounds and smells) fade away, affording visitors a few minutes of peace in an idyllic pastoral setting. Lucerta’s park districts offers open fields of grass, orchards of trimmed and tended trees, running brooks, small hills, rocky outcroppings, and even a few forest animals. The district is fenced, partly to keep vagrants out at night, but also to keep the animals in. The district smells of greenery, even if it is tainted by the odor of sweating laborers working nearby. Other than during special occasions, only the moneyed elite can take the time to frequent the park, so most people encountered here are nicely dressed and well groomed.
