not functional. too few words are detailed.
Qietude is the home of the dragons. It is the mountain on which Contrite and Nemosyne are resting, stretching high into the cloudy skies and reaching like a giant spine through the rolling plains. Inside of the tallest peak, the central of Quietude, is the Dragon Palace, where the king and queen dragons reside. It is a majestic array of winding caves, lit with soft magic light, varying in colors from blue-green to fiery orange. Millions of sparkling crystals line the cave walls, reflecting the lights in a mirage of hues. The Main Cavern is filled with deep blue pools of water, fire continuously raining from the ceiling, though it never reaches the floor. The royalty sit on raised pedestals of polished white marble, a web of petrified rose vines backing them.
