The flying city of Komona is built around the base of The Great Tree of Komona. The tree's rounded branches give shade over most of the city. Despite its open appearance Komona is well protected, and all of the traffic flowing in and out of the city must pass through the gate of Komona under the watchful eye of the Komonan Guard. Komona's residents are primarily rich and upper-class, and property on Komona is expensive by Hereva standards. Because Komona floats above the realms of King Acren it isn't subject to King Acren's taxation (though whether Komona is still under his rule depends on who you ask. Komonans feel since their city does not touch his lands they too are outside of his rule. King Acren differs, but without more resources he is unable to force the Komonans to think otherwise). Most Komonans enjoy plenty of leisure activities in their floating metropolis, and many flying boats travel to Komona for commercial trade and other and tourist attractions. There is also the occasional market where travellers from all over Hereva come to purchase magical effects and wood from The Great Tree. Occasionally Komona opens its city gates for events, most notably the first (and last, if the city council has a say in the matter) "Potion Challenge".

Occasionally Komona opens its city gates for large-scale events, most notably the first "Potion Challenge". After the disastrous results of the first potion challenge (requiring many hours to rebuild and repair the market square) the City Elders of Komona decreed that future potion challenges must not be held in the city proper. For the second magical challenge an arena was built in the hopes of drawing the lucrative crowds to Komona while reducing the risk of damage to the city.

The temples of Ah are located in "the land of the setting moons", where the three moons of Hereva enter "Pink Moon" before drifting off for the day. Ah fashioned their temples atop natural hyperboloid-like structures with long winding stair-cases to reach the platform. Water falls from the edges of these magnificent structures and pools beneath them in teal-colored waters.

The land of the setting moons is also the final resting place for certain dragons of Hereva; who came to this place seeking comfort and peace long before Ah built their temples. The dragons pay little heed to the Ah's practitioners and Ah leaves the dragons in peace. Ah has a beautiful ceremony for the passing of these great creatures, but few outsiders have witnessed it. The ceremony (as explained) calls the spirit of the dragon forth and guides it up to the heavens. As a result the temples sit in juxtoposition between natural beauty and draconic remains. From time to time members of Ah will fashion ornamental jewelry out of the bones of the dragons, but more often the remains sit undisturbed as their primary function of imprisoning such magnificent spirits is no longer relevant.
