A few notes on the Tarshite city of Dunstop:
Dunstop has a population of about 5k people and covers about 50 hectares. It is built on a low (30 meter high) hill that is surrounded by flat agricultural land.It has three distinctive walls around a central citadel.
The most notable structures atop the citadel is the ruler’s palace (home of Fazzur Wideread and his Orindori clan) and the Seven Mothers temple.
Around the citadel are other temples, civic buildings, and noble residences.
There’s going to be a big Ernalda temple there, a temple to Hon-eel, Irrippi Ontor, etc.
Then comes the Inner City, which is relatively prosperous residences, some shops and higher status crafting. Also some “foreign” temples or less prestigious temples. And the main market with its Trade Temple (Issaries and Etyries).
Then around that is the Outer City, where the plebs live in little houses. And where the noisier and stinkier crafts take place.
Around that is rich farmland of barley and maize.The most important institution for stabilising the Lunar Provinces was the the Seven Mothers cult. It functioned in the Provinces like the Spanish Catholic missions did in North America.
So you get a nice temple built, a bunch of priestesses assigned there, soldiers to protect it, and the local rulers are told to cooperate with them.
Some of the locals embraced the Seven Mothers, others retreated into Earth worship.
Do you have the history around the name to share? Well the original name was from Bill Dunn. But that’s not the in-setting etymology, any more than Pimper’s Block is.
