The Vermillion Fundament
The Vermillion call their capital The Fundament. It’s commonly referred to as the Vermillion Fundament. Over the course of their empire’s history, a very few non-Vermillion ever visited the Fundament. The Vermillion were secretive and insular even while they were expansive and generous. There are several written records of the appearance of the Fundament, most of which conflict. Current scholars are divided on which are correct.
Some records describe the Fundament as a city of delicate, spiraling towers that touch the sky. Others describe solid structures that build upon each other and create a city that is one big pyramid. Yet others say the city is made of bridges over abundant flowing waters that cascade down the mountainside. All accounts agree that the city is fantastic and challenges belief.
