1. Hisek’iil : Port of Arankbar

^

The only city thriving in the most inhospitable region of Arankbar, Hisek’iil is also the smallest of the Seven Sisters. This is easily understandable considering its remoteness, and the fact that no one in its right mind would willingly settle in the infamous jungles. Still, traders of the eastern coast are extremely grateful for its existence, as it provides a much needed safe haven along this dangerous coast. Port fees are high, but the alternative would be to moor and camp off the jungle coast, which would amount to suicide in these parts. Arankbar is also the choice forced destination for dwarven exiles of the Kelzhor region, a punishment its citizen take great care not to incur.


2. Tunnels to the Underdark

^

Hisek’iil is the only member of the Seven Sisters with access to the Underdark. As such, it possesses queer resources unavailable to its western sisters. Mushroom powder with a hundred and more bizarre effects can be found in its bazaars, and find its way to Simiil and Sovohiil mainly in exchange for grain, fruit, and crops. Hisek’iil does not depend on the bounty of its water for subsistence, and prefers importing food despite its surrounding waters teeming with fish. Said fishes have many mimicking species that are highly toxic, or predators in their own right, and fisherfolk around these parts would rather avoid the risk of feeding their families meat that might as well kill them.


3. The Untamed Grove

^

The sacred grove of Hisek’iil is euphemistically wilder than its Sisters’, and tends to be overrun by creatures of the surrounding jungles whom encroach on the city. The city is built in a rough circle around its grove, and it blends with the wilderness that creeps through the city in many spots. One would not be safe treading in its woods at any hour of the day, even accompanied by the local druids and defenders.
