Orb of Lightning

The cavern cities of Istos are as vertical as they are horizontal, with cables of heavy web strung in a dizzying complex of three-dimensional roadways that connect all manner of silken houses, temples, workshops, marketplaces and more. There is a silver light everywhere, emitted by the natural luminescence of Xysticid silk, save for in the Embassy, a large burrow off of the High Tribunal where outsiders who have been allowed to come and go (as well as some who are being held on Istos for one secret reason or another, and who aren't for eating).

The Embassy is tunneled in Dwarven fashion into the belly of the mountains, and lined with brilliant crystals that pulse with light in cycles of approximately 11 hours. The only entrance or exit from the Embassy leads through the heart of the High Tribunal, a tremendous inverted funnel of silver and gold webs, each encrusted with a billion tiny gemstones, and windowed with semi-luminous membranes of something colorful and translucent.
