Facet was a mountain Dwarf community founded by the dwarven realm of Kayolin. It was founded prior to the Cataclysm and has served as Kayolin's chief gem cutting city. Throughout its history traders had come here to seek out the highest quality of gems found throughout Ansalon.
When the Cataclysm struck Krynn, Facet was little changed from it. Even though they was minor damage to buildings and a few collapsed tunnels most of Facet was able to rebuild quickly. Ten years following the Cataclysm, Facet had returned to normal business.
The city consisted of numerous levels. They were connected through a great many spiraling staircases and a few mechanical lifts. During the founding of Facet many lower quality stones were used in the foundations of buildings. Buildings in the city were constructed out of black marble that was specially carved to reflect light in several different ways.
Facet also had three large suntunnels that provided light to the city. At the bottom of the lenses were multi colored stones that reflected a myriad of colors into the city. The tunnels also provided heat to the city.
The roads found in the city were broad avenues with shops lining both sides. Residential homes were located behind the main streets. Businesses also catered to both human and dwarf clientele and were built to accommodate the needs of both races.
At the southern end of Facet, the lower levels branched into natural tunnels. These tunnels then traveled steeply downward into the Auriculum Warrens. The tunnels were heavily guarded and were barred by steel grates.
