The realm of the goddess Ishtar, this city is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the Planes. The City of the Star is located in the layer of Amoria, and its citizenry devote themselves to fulfilling their passions whole-heartedly. All forms of art fill this city, and all that fires the heart and enlivens the mind can be found pursued by someone within this realm.

The buildings of this city are made of the whitest marble, and are quite well considered works of art themselves. Fountains inlaid with precious metals and gems can be found at every intersection, flowing forth their crystal-clear water. Ishtar's palace marks the center of the city, its spires reaching to the sky itself, the highest points in the realm.

The beauty of the city extends even to its residents, all darkly handsome in their own rights. Even visitors to the City can benefit from this effect, gaining a +2 to Charisma while they remain within, and keeping a +1 bonus to Charisma after leaving for a period equal to the length of their stay.
