The Eye of Sothis is the only island in the Crimson Canal, which connects the Osirian capital of Sothis to the River Sphinx a dozen miles away. The ovoid island holds the headquarters of the city watch in a fortress on the northern end, although two smaller garrisons protect the public bazaar and the Black Dome. At the center of the island, a large public plaza allows access to bridges across the canal tall enough to allow the passage of ships, holds a reconstructed obelisk to Azghaad, and provides a space for food vendors, merchants, and visitors. The southern edge of the islands hold warehouses and commercial docks, as well as "the Mote", the center of the cult of Norgorber in Osirion.[1]
