Eyries

The Eyries are summer palaces built high in the Sacred Wall where the Suth can escape the summer heat. It consists of a series of ‘stratum’ set one above the other, and connected by stairs [shown as wiggly lines] cut into the rock face. Each stratum is made up of numerous caverns carved into the Sacred Wall. Water is provided by cisterns—cut even higher up—or lifted laboriously by slaves from the Skymere.

The Suth Eyries are typical of those cut into the coombs of other Houses. Strata reflect the power structures in the House, so that the first ones reached provide the barracks of the tyadra and, climbing higher, is to reach ever higher ranking lineages.

The Suth Forbidden House is located most remotely of all.
