The Monks of the Twin Heavens

The Monks of the Twin Heavens, also known as the Cult of the Mirrored Akash Ganga dwell in the towers of the Great Bridge on the river Yaz. Their dogma dictates that the terrestrial realm is the exact mirror of the heavenly realm. They believe that they are not worthy to touch either the heaven above or the heaven below. Hence they never leave the confines of the bridge. They fish over the side of the bridge and grow vegetables in its lofty towers. They would be mocked by all except for the glittering stars that the sift from the swirling waters of Yaz on moonless nights.

These stars are prized by princes, magi, and warlords for their great beauty and unearthly power.
