(This is so beautiful to look at that it gave me an idea for a scene.)

After two weeks of exhausting scorching travel through the Desert of Nasi Alnaas, the Fellow five wanderers have finally found the hidden wonders of the Anchored Realm.

The Mythical Golden Temple, in all its glory as if time itself hadn't laid a hand on it.

Who knew following Veronica's instincts instead of Willow's senses was way more rewarding rather than being bombarded with poison darts and then being chased by a giant boulder covered in dried blood.

But now here they all are, standing by the cave entrance of the Golden Temple, all were completely awed by the sight of the lost wonder.

VERONICA THE SHADOW ASSASSIN: "Usually i would be the one who would be sarcastic about everywhere we go." (Points at the entire Golden Temple) "But this...this is probably the best place we have ever been through!"

POLLY THE BATTLEMAGE: "Incredible! In all of my years of researching through the Imperial grand library, i never thought i would get to really visit the place itself...just incredible!"

WILLOW THE DEMOLITION BARBARIAN: "Say...are those guards down there moving or what?"

FRANKLIN THE FORMER IMPERIUM COMMANDER: "We better not take our chances messing with those guards. According to legends, those 'guards' down there were created straight out of forbidden magic and alchemy, thus creating the perfect sentinel that can last for...what did the scroll say again?...that's right, eternity! They can last for eternity until the end of time! At least, that's what the scroll said though."

DELILAH THE DREAD ORC KNIGHT: "Whatever they are, we should be cautious if we are going around the entire Temple."

FRANKLIN THE FORMER IMPERIUM COMMANDER: "She's not wrong here, people. The moment we are all exploring the Temple is the moment we must remember one of the 'new' rules i just thought up second ago, and that is to not piss off those Temple Guards, got it?"

No one replied back until the Demolition Barbarian rose his hand up.

FRANKLIN THE FORMER IMPERIUM COMMANDER: "No improvised or hidden bombs when i say so, Willow."

WILLOW THE DEMOLITION BARBARIAN: "Damn it, you are no fun at all whenever we are in a new place!"

VERONICA THE SHADOW ASSASSIN: "Can all get moving before my sarcasm comes back?"

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up aSPECIALROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or imSORRY
(Sorry I have to)

I like how the floor is tilted to give a better view, that was a clever stylistic choice, I must say.

Well, you've got a good concept, and great talent...but it looks too empty. There's no people, no gardens, airships, oxcarts, or kitchen smoke--all of the things that make the city look lived-in, you know? I don't mean to sound negative; I'm actually trying to be helpful.

I really like the use in different architecture types here. The domes, columns, stairs, and all the different geometric shapes coalescing into a work of art worthy of a book. I wish I had the skills to make such master pieces such as the ones I see on this site. Well done all :D.

Hey!! Love this picture so much, it's absolutely amazing. :squee:

I featured it here on a website of me and a mate's. The website is on fantasy writing / worldbuilding / warfare tips.
((Feel free to help us advertise it if you can be bothered!))

Anyway, I hope you don't mind us using it! :) We put up a link to this page as credit.
I'll remove it if you do.
