This city is famous for its glass blowers. Its glasses, lenses, and colored window plates are renowned the world over, and always fetch high prices.

To the citizens of Markub, however, this is only a secondary concern. Their pride and joy is the Markub Observatory, an array of giant telescopes on the mountain above the city. The dry air and the high quality of the lenses used in their construction allows viewers to see other planets as if they were close by. Most citizens of Gol Algor, and many other gnomes and dwarves from all over Rothea travel to this observatory at least once in their lives to marvel at it. A strange sect of predominantly gnomish priests controls access to the telescopes, and recruits from promising pilgrims.
