The Organetto    Items  (Art and Music)   (Non-Magical)

The Organetto is a personal organ that puts out full range sound. Yes this is a real world musical item, but it is so “out of most people’s experience” that nobody realizes it exists.

Arune Spheres    Items  (Art and Music)   (Magical)

The unearthly sound echoed across the faire over the din of the crowd. An apprentice trying to make some extra coin had found a way to utilize his training tool.  While this would scandalize his master and his peers, the common folk were mesmerized by the unique sound this instrument performed.

Novel Musical Instruments    Items  (Art and Music)   (Non-Magical)

To give a world a feeling of otherworldliness, it is best to replace some standard, everyday objects by imaginitive replacements. I thought I’d turn to musical instruments as music often defines (or embodies) a culture.

This is just a first idea, feel free to post some more, because I will…

City Image - Medhar, the City that hides.    Locations  (City)   (Any)

Settled two hundred years before, the people were fleeing war and tyranny. Establishing a comfortable existence in the fertile, but empty valleys, they soon learned who the lands belong to. A mighty dragon called only Death, came and burned the city to the ground, and later again, and again, sending with fire also his (hers?) evil laughter and shouts of pleasure at the destruction. The survivors did not wish to leave, and decided for a new strategy.

City Image - Chedru    Locations  (City)   (Water)

The city of Chedru is one of the strangest Elventi cities in existence.  It echos the traditional giant HomeTrees and catwalks between them of "normal" Elventi city.  Yet there is no forest here.  The Elventi were deposited here, far from the green trees and mountains of their traditional homelands.  They have made their Way here.

City Image - PlaceBetweenSunsetandFalls or Anshenestardaywadaden    Locations  (City)   (Water)

Nestled between a plateu and a river that soon leads to the sea, is the Elventi city of Anshenestardaywadaden or more literally Place Between Sunset and Falls. This city has no purpose other than being beautiful. Anshenestardaywadaden is a riot of color, between Elventi magics and the near tropical climate, there are hundreds of beautiful flowers here.  It is best known as a place of waiting for another perfect sunset.

City Image - Keepr    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Keepr is a unique city, built upon a tall standing rock spire.  This keeps it up above the floods, the worms, and the other “issues” that occur at ground level.

A Dwarven Holding contains a single clan lodge, holding 50 to 300 people of the same clan.  Norhold qualifies as a Dwarven city, as it contains five clan lodges, and clan holdings (smaller places to stay) for the the nine other clans in the region.

City Image - Avon    Locations  (City)   (Tundra/ Arctic)

Avon is the southmost city state in Thirdland, built in a natural protected harbor. The climate there is colder and wetter than most parts of Thirdland, so the buildings are sturdier and more utilitarian than in Amar or Antioch even.

City Image - Antioch    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Antioch is the most important city on ThirdLand. It is not the “capital”, that is Amar. It is not the “heart”, that is Avon. Antioch is it’s “Center”. It is where things “happen”. Antioch and its’ City State seems to be the “center of the modern universe”.
