Golden Sun Bay

Golden Sun Bay (LL)

The Bay of the Golden Sun (LL) was the harbor of Otosan Uchi, the former Imperial Capital. It used to be a bustling area for trade and travel, but had seen little traffic since the destruction of Otosan Uchi. The only activity were some peasant fishing vessels and Tortoise ships, [1] the guardians of the bay. [2]

Name Edit

The bay's name came from the setting sun that casted the bay and city remained in a majestic golden shine. It was not uncommon for the survivors in Otosan Uchi who had refused to leave to gather and enjoy the brief moment of beauty. [1]

Notable Places Edit

In the entrance were the Peninsula of Dawn and the Peninsula of Sunset, which formed the called Antlers of the White Stag, and their light houses guided the ships into the bay. [3] The Tortoise Port of the Golden Sun occupied the southern inlet of the bay. [4]
