altinova Altinova (Capital of Mediah) Housing Issue


10 posts in this topic

Altinova is the capital city of Mediah, and the seat of Mediahn power.  They are an affluent trading city, filled with trade, a rich and lengthy history, and a huge amount of people.  Mediah rose to power in the midst of the war between Valencia and Calpheon, aiming to make a profit off of both of them—and they did so very successfully.  They were recently sieged by "Barbarians", a collective group of Orcs, Saunils, Khurutos, and Trolls who lived in the wilderness of Mediah.  The Barbarians were lead by Ilezra, a Witch who stole the powerful tome of Cartian from the town of Tarif.  Ilezra told the Barbarians that their god was with them, and that it was their time to take Altinova.  Instead of actually taking Altinova, they signed a treaty with the head of the Merchant's Guild of Mediah.  Said treaty allows them into the city, in which they've carved out a small run-down district for themselves.

Despite Altinova's history of wealth, opportunity, and technological advancement—all of the houses in Altinova are mud brick houses with one small room.  This is not an exaggeration by any means, I have visited every house in Altinova in other versions of the game.  This makes sense for some (or even most) districts sure, but there isn't a single district that didn't get leveled?  I find that hard to believe.  Even more bizarre, is that we see wealthy individuals walking around in fine clothes who see themselves as above everyone else.  And yet, not a single building in Altinova so much as suggests that they would have much to boast about.  The homes in Altinova are, in all honesty, rather bland and featureless.  Sure, you can make them nice, but in the end you're decorating the same brown square cube that everyone else is.  It's for this reason that I make a suggestion:

Updating Altinova a bit in the future.  I am not asking for an immediate change, and certainly am not asking for a change before the patch comes (that's impossible, I'm being a realist about this).  More of what I'm saying is that it would be nice if in the future Altinova had a bit of a "makeover".  Maybe they're going through a rebuilding period and we start seeing some better homes rise up in districts that are being rebuilt?  Just a thought.  Altinova at its prime must have been amazing based on architecture in places such as the Elric Shrine—and I'm sure that many of us would be interested in getting even just a taste of what the high society of Mediah has to offer.

Recently relocated to Altinova and was very unhappy to discover NOT A SINGLE multi-room or multi-level house.
