We'll walk over here just outside the market to the town square. That building there? That's the office of \textbf{Miss Saffron}, the most famous witch in all of Komona. She caused quite a stir when she won the second magic contest (the first potion contest nearly destroyed Komona. I mean, who's big idea was it to pour a growth potion on a zombified canary?). Miss Saffron's a celebrity and now all of the witches want to get her advice on anything from how to join the \textbf{Magmah school}, to relationship advice, to pretty much anything else. They say her appointment calendar is booked at least 13 months in advance. She must be something to have that kind of success.
The office of \textbf{Mayor Bramble} is over there. I think the only time we ever see him is to announce another magic or potion contest. Granted these contest do bring folks into Komona, and bring in the revenue, but I'd like a little more focus on rebuilding from the first potion contest.

At the second magic contest the mayor brought in representatives from all of the magical schools. We had \textbf{Queen Coriander} from \textbf{Zombiah}, \textbf{Shichimi} from \textbf{Ah}, \textbf{Pepper} from \textbf{Chaosah}, \textbf{Spirulina} from \textbf{Aqua}, \textbf{Camomile} from \textbf{Hippiah}, and of course Miss Saffron represeting Magmah. I think this was the first time since the war that all six schools were in one location without fighting each other. Naturally Saffron won the contest, and her fame in Komona grew. As you can see there are several ad campaigns using her to pitch their products. Saffron and Queen Coriander are the two most famous witches of Hereva right now.

The other big event here was the coronation of Queen Coriander in her castle in \textbf{Qualicity}. Oh, it was a lovely spectacle. We watched the coverage in the arena. Everyone who is anyone was there, including those witches from Chaosah that caused quite a spectacle. \textbf{Wasabi}, the head of the school of Ah said they were a complete disgrace with the gluttony of \textbf{Cumin}, the carrying on and cavorting of that od witch \textbf{Thyme}, and worst of all the \textit{intimidating stare} of \textbf{Cayenne}. I don't think she even blinked once during the whole coronation. And \textbf{Pepper} and her cat \textbf{Carrot} seemed to be right in the thick of things. The tabloids had a field day with that lot.

Everyone who is anyone was there, including those witches from Chaosah that caused quite a spectacle. \textbf{Wasabi}, the head of the school of Ah said they were a complete disgrace with the gluttony of \textbf{Cumin}, the carrying on and cavorting of that old witch \textbf{Thyme}, and worst of all the \textit{intimidating stare} of \textbf{Cayenne}. I don't think she even blinked once during the whole coronation. And \textbf{Pepper} and her cat \textbf{Carrot} seemed to be right in the thick of things. The tabloids had a field day with that lot.
If you look over that wall there you'll see the three moons peeking over the horizon. Over that way is where they say that the temples of Ah are located. They're one of the few constants in Hereva. I'm not sure where you're traveling next but you'll want to visit the Hereva Cartography Company to get their maps. Accept no substitutes! The landscape changes have been more unpredictable than usual, which means the Hereva Cartography Company business is booming selling their proprietary maps. They say it's the best way to get around Hereva. I believe them, but some still take their chances navigating around Hereva by looking for landmarks and using the stars. Of course there are a few competitors making alternate maps, but the Hereva Cartography Company maps are the best.

Believe the hype --- they're the best way to get around Hereva.

Komona and Kerberos are both floating cities, floating by the magic power of \textbf{The Great Tree of Komona} in the center of each city. Kerberos is the more recent of the cities, formed when the great tree fractured during the war. That's where the really wealthy Komonans live, though I've yet to see any of it.
The great war really changed the landscape of Hereva, It certainly changed the magical schools that lost. Kerberos didn't even exist until The Great Tree of Komona nearly died during the conflict. Folks say the city was falling to the ground when suddenly a loud \textbf{boom} happened. Suddenly there was another littler tree next to The Great Tree of Komona. Some took it as a sign of a new era of Hereva, while others wondered if the war had irreparably changed Hereva forever. What I know is the real-estate developers saw an opportunity and suddenly there was a whole gated community there on Kerberos. If you get a chance to go over there I'd love to hear your tale. Heck, you might get me to part with some Ko for your tale.

Folks say the city was falling to the ground when suddenly a loud \textbf{boom} happened. Suddenly there was a smaller tree next to The Great Tree of Komona. Some took it as a sign of a new era of Hereva while others wondered if the war had irreparably changed Hereva forever. What I know is the real-estate developers saw an opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime real-estate development and suddenly there was a whole gated community there on Kerberos. If you get a chance to go over there I'd love to hear your tale. Heck, you might get me to part with some Ko for your trouble.
Speaking of parting with some Ko it seems our tour has concluded. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Komona and do feel free to browse about the shop and let me know if I can be of any more service to you. Good Pink Moon to you all.
