J is for Jakálla

Jakálla, the "City Half as Old as the World", is located on the south coast of Tsolyánu at the mouth of the Missúma River. It is bisected by the Eqúnoyel River which flows from the east. The city is a thriving metropolis and port with a population of around 600,000 souls. It has a well deserved reputation for decadence and indolence. This is not surprising, given that Dlamélish, the Green-Eyed Lady of Fleshly Joys and Mistress of Demons, one of the Tsolyáni Gods of Change, is the city's patron. The population are willful and with temperatures ranging from 26 to 40 degrees Celsius, with very hot summer days attaining 51 degrees, it is not surprising that the city marches to it's own tune. The annual rainfall averages 380 cm.
