The Ivory Mesa

The Ivory Mesa is the capital city of the Sandsea Confederacy, as well as the name of the geologic formation on which it sits. The name derives from the rich deposits of limestone and marble that lace the plateau, which in turn are used as the primary building materials for the city itself.

The Ivory Mesa is one of the largest settlements in Jir’azad, owing to its comparative wealth of water. The mesa itself contains an underground lake, and a relatively large oasis sits approximately a mile south of the mesa. With the oasis under the stewardship of the Azure Sultanate and the underground spring watched over by the Sandsea Dwarves, the Ivory Mesa represents a rare confluence of the two peoples. Other races were also drawn to the water, making the Ivory Mesa a highly multicultural settlement.
