Cristian was a gentleman knight. Alas, his order had a vow of chastity. He was ultimately killed by Trillarillia, that bitch.
--Hillary Sturoster, filing clerk of Annwyn
Troubled man whose psionic powers, awakened during the Madness, caused him to believe female neighbors were Trillarillia, so
he hunted them down and killed them. He was thrown into a coma by Princess Kristin, where he remains.

The famed city of legend, Cynosure (not to be confused with the City on the Edge of Forever) appears every one hundred and
seventy-seven years near a small village at the southernmost end of Cynystra. Its last appearance was in the year 662, almost one hundred
and fifty years ago. It is next expected to appear in the year 839. Cynosure is a pan-dimensional city that contains within it areas of most
every dimension in the omniverse.
--Charles Colombus, "A Working Guide to Ataniel Geography"
Cynystra is a mixed culture, and has been since its earliest origins of trade caravans traveling south from Shikintu and mixing with the native
Celts of that region. Located to the far southwest of the continent, this Cynystra enjoys the best-protected natural borders of any country on Ataniel,
controlling all the land south of the high Kharek Mountains and west of the Dyved wilderness. Cynystra is ruled by a benevolent dictator and is a
powerful military nation with authoritarian internal politics. While there might be some question about civil freedom, the economy is strong and it
cannot be denied that the government uses its authority and revenue for the defense and welfare of its people. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813
Cynystra is pretty boring, but it's clean and well-kept-up. There's not much crime. Taxes are pretty high, but the public services are good.
Two and a half stars. Your mileage may vary if, like, your evil ex-husband lives there.
--Threnody's travel guide
Some of the cities that have more of an international trade base have some fun nightlife, but it's difficult to find. They tend more towards
exclusive gentlemen's clubs than establishments that are open to the public. But I would have to say that my personal enjoyment of the
country went sharply downhill after 794.
