Castle in the Sky: After the Wars
A shrine and attendant town in the Appalachian foothills of the Principality of the Carolinas.
The shrine is founded on the place where the Prophet Dorji ascended to heaven, though the town predates this ascension. The story goes that the Prophet, a servant of the Goddess of the Moon, whose portfolio also includes luck, knew that he was not long for the world. He came to the town and visited the casino, where he gambled away his few worldly possessions.
Afterward, he and his disciples climbed the hill behind the casino and made camp. He left them with a few words, and lay down to sleep. Instead, he was transformed to a body of light, and ascended in a beam of moonlight to the heavens. His disciples built a statue of the sleeping prophet on the spot where he ascended, and the shrine of Desrae and her prophet followed.
