Plaza of Heroes
The Plaza of Heroes is a large open area in the center of Gervasa. Once the proud center of the great city, the Plaza of Heroes is now the permanent home of the Heroes' Bazaar, an ever-shifting marketplace of tents and shacks and other temporary structures, some of which were erected before their current proprietors were born. The Golden Heroes, faceless lead statues around the perimeter of the plaza, have long since lost their gold plating to scavengers, and their names to the weather and time. Some say they were great generals who fought and won the Emperor's wars. Some say they were gladiators who distinguished themselves in the Colosseum and were honored for their bravery. Some say that all of the statues are of the Emperor himself, a monument to his eternal glory.
