The upper levels of the Great Pyramid of Tauneskalis III are dedicated to worship of the divine family and observance of the great incandescent blue-green beacon that reminds all within the Blue Empire of their divine potence. (Click here for the ground level and general description of the pyramid)
The main worship level of complex is dedicated to the history of the Empire and the Imperial Dynasties – with statues of the six emperors of the Tauneskalis family along the Green Hall on the north side. Access to this level is either by the secret staircase behind the statue of Tauneskalis III himself, or via the not-very-secret passage that exits on the west face of the pyramid. The path up the west face has been well worn by the many people that have climbed up and down this way since the pyramid was built.
The upper levels contain archives of the empire – stored in the crypts, tombs and niches constructed on these levels that have never held a body. At the very top level, a sloped chamber leads up to a balcony that faces east that is still used to this day to make imperial proclamations in the early mornings a few times a year.

I believe this is my first comment, but I’ve been following you for quite a while now. In my opinion, that’s one of your best maps so far. The description is interesting, the fantastical feature is interesting, the history is interesting, and I _loved_ the “not-so-secret passage” touch. Bravo!

Awesome. There’s a lot more backstory I have going around in my head that hasn’t made the page.
1. The beacon comes from Tauneskalis III’s infant son who he had entombed alive here.
2. The beacon is quite green, but when you are the emperor of The Blue Empire, you name the beacon as blue as possible.
I too have followed your blog. I am always caught up in the background info of your New Kingdoms and the fallen Kale. Would love to read more of that and see the atlas you mentioned wanting to get around to some years ago! MORE NEW KINGDOMS 🙂
