Aalishai: Palace of Embers
Aalishai: Palace of Embers is a zone in The Burning Lands expansion.
|To Empyr: Realms of Ash|
Aalishai is the glowing center of the efreeti realm, where the ambassadors of the other jann come to meet with the queen, Heart of Flawless Brass, and her minions. Aalishai is meant to serve as a place for negotiations, but in recent times these "negotiations" tend to feel more like altercations.
All around the area, you can find structures built by the efreeti that are intended to be comfortable and welcoming to their guests. Beautiful sulfur pools are scattered around the land for the ondine, and some simple holes in the ground serve as caves for the duende. Buildings of various sizes stand for the mortal visitors, which are uncomplicated living spaces with obsidian furniture.
You're unlikely to spot any djinn here, as it's no secret the two races hate each other. When they do visit they reside above the land in floating clouds of ash. Some have even suggested that these dwellings were secretly intentionally created to be slightly uncomfortable for their guests, but the efreeti deny any such accusations.
A grand palace that lies in the center of the expanse serves as the main palace for the efreeti. It is elaborate, with great towers and heavy doors, inlaid with bronze, onyx, and even lava, meant to both impress and intimidate visitors. The palace is home to several conference rooms, and of course, a striking throne room.
