The walls have ears by Morphera The walls have ears by Morphera
...and eyes. And a few opinions.

And a certain mage knows for sure he shouldn't have trusted those pretty red and white mushrooms.
...

When I designed this outfit I had a battlemage in mind. However, this is more a ceremonial outfit than anything else. On the other hand, the mages of the world below don't know the meaning of the expression "functional clothing", which of course is a very good thing (for me).
Actually there is no specific faction of battlemages in the underworld - in a way all dark mages are battlemages, and before they were cast out from the upper world they were commonly hired to fight, guard, assassinate and, generally, to handle all of the messy stuff where their destructive powers could be beneficial.

The walls are of a temporary type commonly used whenever a building has to be raised quickly - mining and cutting in the rock is strictly prohibited for anyone except for the guild of engineers. Large parts of the world below is located below the ocean floor, where any digging in the wrong place may lead to fatal consequences. Thus, such buildings are commonly made from various debris, unfortunate vegetation and most other things that might possibly be available at the location in question.


...

I'm not obsessed with symmetry. No, really.
I'm sure many of you laugh, or shake your heads in disbelief, when I claim I'm actually working on some assymetrical pieces.

And my brain screams...

...

Well, enough of my ramblings now. Thanks a lot for looking! :cuddle:

Even though you say you struggle with the colors in the end I believe that you made the right choice in choosing the reds,oragnes and blacks that you sued it gives the peice a nice quality.

Also on a side note I know how you feel about semetiry I have the same problem...lol
