So, I’ve been thinking lately about the style, layout and architecture of my character’s hometown, with a view to creating art, maps, etc. This has raised a few questions:
Is there a typical “Highborn style” for towns? How do you envision them? Is there anything you would specifically avoid?
Is the chapterhouse the whole town/complex, or just a single sort of “town hall” structure?
Personally, I struggle to reconcile the grandiosity of the Minas Tirith-style inspirations with smaller Highborn towns and villages.
