It’s time for the second map reveal from Fragile Chaos! Join me for another bi-weekly reveal of the Realm of the Gods and Goddesses.
First up – Ebris, King of the Gods!
Realm of Ebris, King of the Gods
While the brilliance of Ebris’ earthly temples had diminished greatly, the one mirrored in the realm of the King of the Gods’ was as pristine as it did the day it was created. Ribbed pillars surrounded a smooth marble exterior. Light shone into the temple through an enormous domed skylight, and the gold walls gleamed as brightly as the sun.
The walk from the temple to the eight hundred room castle led through elaborately designed
shrubbery, manicured lawns, and gardens brimming with colorful flora. A symmetrical courtyard boasted a dozen fountains with a gazebo showcased at the center.
Inside the castle, gold mosaics covered every ceiling, spreading down the walls to meet with
embedded diamonds. The windows in the wing leading to the throne room comprised of stained glass. The sunlight used the reds, yellows, and blues to paint a vivid design on the opposite wall, continuing into the throne room with twenty foot ceilings.
Nearly five hundred wives still remained in Ebris’ realm along with over two thousand servants. The male servants slept six to a room while the wives slept two. There were exceptions of course; four favorite wives had their own chambers, and the six lead servants only had to share with one other person. One hundred rooms were set aside for recreational purposes—a ballroom, painting rooms, libraries—while a dozen rooms were off limits to anyone other than Ebris.
Everyone was encouraged to associate with each other as they saw fit as long as no one ever forgot who was in charge.
