An Imperfect Circle
On the far banks of the Yanazee River from Lookshy, Centak is a resort town a pilgrimage site. The city is dominated by the ziggurat-temple to Melevashni Yanazee, Goddess of the Great River. Rushing water originates as cascading waterfalls from the temple and flows through channels alongside the tree-shaded avenues. The sound of flowing water is ever-present and the city is lush with fruit trees and flowering vegetation.
Centak is a center of healing, and pilgrims travel from throughout the River Province to bathe in the waters of the Yanazee River. They share the river banks with Melevashni's sacred crocodiles, the greatest of which dwarf the seagoing ships them make their way up the river.
While technically within Lookshy's sphere of influence, Centak is not considered a true Helot Kingdom. The Gens of Lookshy respect the independance of Melevashni's River Priests and promise to defend Centak as their own territory shoud it be attacked by outside forces. None have yet tested Lookshy's promise and the might of the river goddess.
