This town is built near the Agagat and instead of the normal monsters found in Tai Pan, monsters with the fire subtype are more often found here. The town was built as a mining community, digging up the rich veins of Obsidian and Gemstones that exist in this volcanic area. The area around here is more rocky and less jungled than the rest of Tai Pan but due to it’s location is often much warmer. The local hot springs are a favorite of the Maharaja and he usually finds time to visit at least five times a year. In addition it’s location, higher on the mountains, means there is little flooding and that the homes don’t have to be built on stilts. The hills also provide shelter against the monsoon winds and rain, but often there are mudslides off the mountains. In addition if a mudslide or flood that runs into the valley the valley can fill with steam. The Maharishi of this region is Xu Haw Kim (Zoo Hahw Kim), the Maharaja’s Cousin. Xu Haw enjoys a somewhat comfortable lifestyle here and is well known for his Lizard Riders, the Cipakaltchi ([i:1plhu46w]Si-pah-Kal-T’chee[/i:1plhu46w]). He is also known for how hard he drives the miners in order to please his cousin. All the main families in Tai Pan keep homes here and through out the year members of those families come to stay and enjoy the baths. The Ahmid here is Kalanemi ([i:1plhu46w]Kawlah-nehmee[/i:1plhu46w]) God of purging flame who fairies the souls and wishes of mortals to Weishuda. He is also aligned with arcane magic so many of Tai Pan’s arcane casters come here to pay homage or take up residence.
