Proposed Canon

Dhyrstone is one of three Level Five Jetstone cities.

At level five, it can pop a stack of eight pikers or one of six stabbers per turn, or one Gump every third turn.

Description

"A sprawling stone citadel with an equally impressive garrison, its mossy gray ramparts rose up out of the dense pine forest with serene grace...

...tall, hard, chiseled, majestic, and quietly, implicitly violent."

Speculation

Dhyrstone pops regular infantry of a higher quality than any other Jetstone city or any of its known neighbors. They may begin at a higher level or have above-average stats for units of their type and level.
