The Church

This is a small, peaceful, independent town composed of pieces rifted from old Falcon 6 Town on old Locura (including the NPCs that were a part of Father Asa's congregation) and located in the corresponding place on the reconstituted continent of Talamh. It's not very high tech, or important in any other way except for the fact that it is the focal point of entry into this world, just as it's predecessors Phocusa (Primavaldia) and Falcon 6 Town (Old Locura). The city limits of Midtown were voted in 2010 to include the Excelsior Factory, Hospital, Rocky Port, the Excelsior River, and Long Beach (formerly known as the Beach Front). Because of it's strategic situation it has a fairly large wealth base, and powerful connections with other countries.

The walls were made of the stone and the corners of the blue-green tile roof were supported by stone copies of Lien Hua's dragon form. In the center front of the roof was a short bell tower crowned with a stone cross. There were large wooden double doors at the top of a short set of stairs in front leading to an entry way that was slightly smaller than the church itself. The entry way was flanked by two smaller stained glass windows with the "lamb of God" motif (a lamb holding a cross banner) with lillies and grapevines, and the restroom doors. Just beyond those was a stone basin of water. Inside the sanctuary there were stone support pillars on the sides, beautifully carved oak pews, and arched stained glass windows. The windows showed scenes of different events beginning with one on the left that was divided into seven different scenes and labeled "The Creation", and one on the right showing a giant wooden box on a mountain with animals streaming out of it and a rainbow in the sky labeled "The Flood". The last two showed a baby in a manger, and Jesus on the cross labeled "The Nativity" and "The Crucifixion". In front was the altar with the cross and star of David, supported by another stone copy of Lien Hua's dragon form. Under this altar was where they put Lien Hua's ashes and Tejas' head band. Beyond the altar were arched windows above the receptacle for the Torah, three of them. The smaller two on either side showed two men looking toward the center. The one on the left showed a man holding stone tablets with Hebrew writing on them and was labeled "Moses". The one on the right was wearing a coat of animal hair and was label "Elijah". The center one showed Jesus, his outstretched hands and his feet were pierced with wounds, and there was a crown on his head and twelve stars in his hands. Around the arch above his head were titles; "Prince of Peace", "Son of David", "Son of Man", "Son of God", "Ancient of Days", "Everlasting Father"; and it was labeled at the bottom "Messiah Yeshua". To the right of the altar was a prayer room with a door that led outside, and to the left of the altar was a small room that once housed Father Asa and little Samuel, but now was an entryway to the new stone house that was attached to the church for Father Asa and his children to live in.
