Kaonakala (pronounced “kah-oh-nah-kah-lah”) is a city that sits above the sky itself. Built on top of the Lanikaula, it was built far over Mokupoe in order to facilitate their spelljamming efforts. While not a large city, it still houses the grand collection of scholars, mages, artificers, and administrators necessary to design and build spelljamming vessels, not to mention the clerks, janitors, and cooks needed to support them, and the various guards, farmers, and laborers needed to support them. Rather than wasting limited throughput by sending basic supplies up the Lanikaula, Kaonakala was built to be as self-sufficient as possible.
In other words, it’s a space station that build space ships. Badass.
