The town center was the oldest
and grayest part of the town, though, even there the buildings were still
colorful with the stone buildings being blue-gray, pink-gray and lavender-gray.
In the center of town, marking the absolute center of the town, was a park area
with a fountain in the center, the fountain led down into an underground grotto
which was currently overflowing with people not unlike the fountain above it. “Looks like it’s connected,”
Ramses said. “I think Mederei said it was
