Rhistel

Rhistel, also known as the City of a Thousand White Towers and Place of Spires by the Kagonesti, it is the capital of the elven nation of Silvanesti, and regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, especially by Silvanesti Elves.  Rhistel is located on Fallon Island. Giant turtles are used to ferry elves to and from the mainland. When approaching the city, silver gates led into the city through the walls. These gates are bound with magics that make the gates so powerful that no force on Arreanna could break them down. Once one enters the city, there are one thousand gleaming white towers, and all homes were built with the use of magic, and made of wood, crystal, or white marble. They start at one or two story homes near the wall, up to ten to twelve story homes in the center of the city. The only straight streets in the city are in the cardinal directions of a compass. The city itself looks like a well tended garden, with all trees equally spaced, blooming flowers that are arranged in complex patterns, crystalline fountains, and all paths are made of cobblestone.  At the heart of the city is where all the major towers and temples. Here is where the Emerald Throne could have been found.  The Silvanesti are the mightiest of the Elves of Keswick. They are stronger, faster and slightly less frail than their Qualinesti cousins, as well as being more poised and far more intelligent than the Kagonesti. The Silvanesti enjoy their long lives, engaging in things like dance, song and music. And though they are generally a life-loving people who view suicide as the ultimate heresy and death as a travesty, they are also adept swordsmen and archers, capable of taking the life of any foe if necessary.
