ORAKNUNKARO, I pronounced for the third time in a sequence, and with a whisper, a cold wind swept across the room. The dim light of a candle danced and weakened, but survived to expose the blank pages of my unwritten book. From the stillness of the fabric, a red drop tainted the empty surface from within. A spot became a puddle that turned into a lagoon of crimson velvet. I glanced into the forming mirror, and from the other side, a lean figure stared back at me with empty eyes and a raw smile. It didn’t say anything, but of course, it didn’t have to. For those probing eyes that read my thoughts were none other than my own. __________ This is an entry for Week II of the Style it Up Contest by InnovaLug. The proposition was to build something 100% symmetrical. I took this as another opportunity to build outside of my usual castle-medieval theme again. Also, make sure to check my other entries for this contest: Week I: Stag in the Shadows Week III: Self distancing countermeasures Week IV: Yet to come Hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
Pondering the challenges presented by a growing city, Tabib D'Odo would often take refuge in his study to find some peace and quiet. His duties and responsibilities had increased dramatically over the past year as Mophet had grown from a quiet desert oasis into a rather large city. The previously scattered settlements and buildings had slowly merged together and a lot of new ones had been built. The walls of older settlements and forts in the region incorporated and renovated into proper city walls and with it, the formation of the official city guard of Mophet. All of this meant that a lot more things needed the attention of the leading members of the community, one of which was Tabib. All was not only pleasant with the growth of the city, as illustrated by the increased number of people with questionable motives that now frequented the markets and establishments. Tabib was especially concerned with the roumors that slave-traders had began to show up, transporting poor souls to who-knows-what. The matter had been discussed at length with some of the other members of the city counsil but some chose to look the other way as the trade did seem to generate a lot of revenue to the city. Tabib decided to write letters to some of the leading members of other prominant cities in Kaliphlin, hoping to gather support for tougher laws against this horrific custom. So this is a small vig I created to show the inside of my sig-fig Tabib's study. I came up with a design for the floor which I rather liked (see below for a small tutorial) and then tried to decorated the room with a few things to make it a little more habitable. Hope you guys like it. cheers.
