Inhabitants put special emphasis on beautiful architecture, which I based on classical, Asian, fantasy, and perhaps the domes of Hagia Sofia, which show up in many fantasy settings. We wanted the city to be rather flat, with an emphasis on the horizontal. The city will be buried at a future time! So unlike many of my typical castles and villages, this one spreads out horizontally, blending into gardens, orchards, light forest, and more. This is part of an ongoing series for Jonathan Skye, and we plan on doing some more locations.
