Hmm, thank you. This is very interesting.
Actually moving away from my original topic somewhat... does this hold true on the level of smaller towns and villages as well (every settlement a microcosm of the whole nation), or is this Idealist influence weaker in the countryside?
Also, were all cities completely rebuilt like this, or are there older and less "idealised" parts in some cities (older ones that were less touched by various troubles that led up to Siglat's Dream)?
> 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.
