The secret to how we built Caelondia so tall and proud lies in Burstone Quarry. Just takes three things to build the greatest city in the world. Takes hard work and planning. And it also takes Burstone Quarry.
The Ura tunnels beneath the Quarry must have softened the blow from the Calamity. We bought the whole place from the Ura on the cheap. Same goes for its natives, Rattle-tails.
Why would the Ura put up with those pests? Rattle-tails ain't the worst of it either, but more about that in a little bit.
The Quarry came with a lifetime supply of windbags. Windbags smaller than the naked eye can see are nesting in those rocks.
But there was even more to it than that. Not only are these rocks the source of life. We found that the oldest ones remember things. They're recording everything, all the time, taking it all in.
No wonder all those beasts were drawn to the Quarry. The rocks were calling them.
Keeping the Quarry free from pests turned out to be a problem. Rattle-tails kept tunneling in to snack on Windbags.
Without those Windbags, the quarry might not have its special qualities. The Windbags tended to the rocks, so we had to keep the Rattle-tails at bay. Even Stinkeyes started taking root in here.
Now why would the Ura sell off such a fascinating place? Might be the Gods told them the Quarry's bad news.
