[RoW] [Discuss] Urithiru Origin


Recommended Posts

Thoughts on the following:


Urithiru is always mentioned as the seat of the Knights Radiant. Did they create it, or merely inhabit it? If the latter, was it created similar to the cymatic cities we've seen? The Sibling claims that the Oathgates do not belong to them, so they were likely added later by Radiants. This would explain why the Gate at Narak is unharmed despite the shattering AND why it doesn't fit in with the cymatic pattern (no Oathgate does, hinting that they were place there much later in time). Also, there are 11 cities with gates if you count Urithiru, but how many Dawncities are there? 10, 11, 16?

As @Frustration said it was created by the shards. It seems that the KR (or atleast the humans) decided where to place it:



Though many wished Urithiru to be built in Alethela, it was obvious that it could not be. And so it was that we asked for it to be placed westward, in the place nearest to Honor.

It was once just Ur, iirc


Venli knelt on the floor of a secluded hallway on the fifteenth floor of Urithiru. The stones whispered to her that the place had once been called Ur. The word meant “original” in the Dawnchant. An ancient place, with ancient stones.
