The Starlit Belfry is a large, peaceful clan lying on a coastal plain near the heart of the Arcane Region. Past rolling hills and glittering, woodland gardens lies its inner region, a castle that is an increasingly eclectic mishmash of add-ons as it grew to accompany more dragons and many more ideas. The castle surrounds a cobblestone courtyard and bastide which is a hub of entertainment and trading. The clan's namesake, a large belfry, greets newcomers as they enter.

Further Background Edit

WIP// The Starlit Belfry lies on the open steppe in the heart of the Arcane Region about four hundred feet above sea level. The lair takes the form of a modest castle (as counter-intuitive as that may sound) that is an increasingly eclectic mishmash of add-ons as it grew to accompany more dragons and many more ideas. A large belfry stands to the front , slightly to the left. The clan’s founder and current leader, Chimes (herself an aspiring architect) grew up with a vision of what would become the lair’s first structure–  that belfry for which it is named. As she fled and erased all ties to her former life, she saved any money she could to set this dream to motion.

Encircling the hodgepodge castle are all manner of plants and gently rolling hills, all lying safely behind cobble walls. Dragons rush pass down a stony path, entering the area through a tall copper gate and surrounding fence with a swirling art nouveau flair to it. More soar overhead with the company of an array of non-drakes– including members of a local Talonok Beast Clan (an ally to the Belfry). Once inside, one is greeted by a small fae and the sight of an idyllic storybook-like court. Though it largely is home to idealists, artisans, and tinkerer, the Belfry hosts an assortment of dragons with no clear species, color, or trade bias.

The Belfry has since grown to be a haven for all who share its founders’ love for the natural world and its mysteries. It is always open to allying with other clans or being featured in their lore if they’re into that sort of thing. However, the Belfry does not take kindly to those who abuse its hospitality and openness. Plenty of its members have no qualms resorting to violence in self-defense and the Belfry surely does have plenty of tenacious, trained fighters in its ranks.
