Legends of Eris
Sun’s Peak is the capital city of Queen Aruna‘s realm. It is a diverse city, split between the pious and the greedy. Worship of A’Shamasa is extremely prevalent in the city, and the Festival of the Sun hosted here is always the most spectacular on the continent. In addition to being a thriving city for trade, education and technology are also at a high level.
According to legend, Sun’s Peak was the name of the mountain where A’Shamasa first perished and rose again, becoming the Phoenix King. The palace was then built into this mountain, and the town that grew up around it took its name. However, this legend is disputed, and some say that A’Shamasa actually became the Phoenix King in the Scorched Valley, somewhat further south.
