Cerulean Pier

Cerulean Pier

The Cerulean Pier used to stand proudly beside the bustling docks. The pier was a popular location amongst the student population of Zeltiva. It housed a tavern, ball room, and an aquarium, and many used to walk along the lengthy promenade to stare out to sea. In the evenings, lovers watched the waves with clasped hands.

The Cerulean Pier was actually a replacement, and the replacement still never matched the majesty it used to be during the Roayl Period. Zeltiva had always had one, but the original from was destroyed beyond repair by the Valterrian. The driftwood from that pier still washes up on foreign shores sometimes. As Zeltiva found its feet again, a band of sailors grouped together to build the new pier, as a gift to the city and its inhabitants.

There were small carvings on the edges of the pier, some of Qalaya, and some of Laviku - an attempt to capture both the seafaring and studious aspects of Zeltiva. It had been open all day and night to public access, but closed off during storms or particularly rough seas. When the coldest of the bonesnapper bites, small sections of the pier tended to freeze as waves hit it.

During the Djed Storm of Spring, 512 AV, the pier was severely damaged, with half of it collapsing into the sea. The damage was strangely symbolic, since the pier had previously been destroyed in the Valterrian. With all of the other repairs that the city needed, the Pier was quickly forgotten about. Further weather and waves ruined what was left of the pier, and by the time the city was able to steady their feet and address the pier, it was in ruins. In the Fall of 516AV, an initiative was taken to completely disassemble what was left of the pier, to reuse what they could, and let the ocean take the rest. Many can still see a faint hexagonal ruin from the tower that the pier was anchored to. It is in shallow water and easy to avoid by boats. Talk of turning it into a lighthouse has spoken, but no one has cared enough to touch the ruins since the Djed Storm.
