One important thing about Loskalmi art and architecture I almost totally forgot to mention is the emphasis on the ideal form of things. Loskalmi cities and buildings tend to be very planned in appearance with an emphasis on symmetry, proportion, geometry and the regularity of parts. Art tends to be idealised, with depictions of the ideal form.

> Lots of fantastic forms. The city of Northpoint is perfectly circular with incredibly extensive and elaborate fortifications and each gate has double doors made of bronze. The Golden Gate Palace (home of the King of Loskalm and his Council of Wisdom) dominates the city. Across the Bay, Southpoint is defined by the impossibly tall Tower of Night and Day, where the great spells that maintain Loskalm are cast and maintained. And so on.
