A description of Tear.

Tear

Known to the denizens of Tamriel, the city of debauchery and greed is known as the capital of the Dunmer Great House Dres, Tear. Throughout its streets, running rampant are the black sheep of society. These outcast ranges from fraudulent nobles to the paltry commoners. Despite the corruption and decadent of its populous, this city is not all that calamitous. From the aroma of incense, the nauseating smell of the lowly slaves, this city is full of bristling merchants, mercenaries, agrarian farmers. Sprawling out of this decadent city is the salt rice plantations packed full of laboring slaves. Hanging onto the last vestiges of their culture they remain hostile to the imposing Imperial culture, and laws.

From its enigmatic suspended hanging gardens floating above the fortress like palace of the House Dres to the great market bazaars, this city is a sight to behold. Last but not least are the infamous dread slave pits of Tear. As despicable and loathing, the slaves remain rather astute and stoic to their conditions. To be of any worth and profit, the slaves cannot be in such wretched conditions, so despite the preceding reputation of the slave pits, it is not all that bad.


Oasis of Dres Khizumet-e

Suspended above the colossal temple, resides the Oasis of Dres Khizumet-e. It is named after the Chimeri hero of old, as a sign of tribute to his honor before his fall and return as a spirit revenant. From its drooping vines, to the drops of mildew in the vivid radiant morning, the garden is quite resilient and striking. One that would walk through this garden or merely sit beneath the shadows of the trees would be amazed at these stoic trees. These pendulous gardens of Dres Khizumet-e have become a haven for those that seek insight and tranquility from this sanctum above the darkness from beneath.

The Slave Barathums

The slave pens are vast and infamous, feared and loathed. Thousands of captives that pass through the dreaded slave pens within this city have found their untimely demise on the plantations which surround this ill-fated city. Their destiny is pitiful, to be forced to live a life of servitude and oppression, to be forever subjugated.

There is one Screenshot here. Smile Make do. More screenshots will be up in a few days time.


And also Architecture News: There are a few new models that have not been included in the Dres Architecture zip that can currently be downloaded. They are: the Oasis model, several new houses, some new walls and a new tower. These will be included soon in a future update.

Yinnie.

Here are some progress screenies of Tear. Note that the empty spaces will be filled and detailed eventually.






Dres Walls and Bridge:
Also a word to those using Dres Architecture in their claims, the walls used in Tear will be the standard Dres wall thus making the original walls defunct.

I'll be uploading the download for the new wall pieces when I have the time. They should be up by tomorrow night. They include a gate, strider port and 4 different wall pieces. I apologize as well for not bringing this up sooner.

There will also be a new Dres Bridge to replace the current one.

I came back from a few hours of watching the man I want to be the father of my children hit a small white ball into small holes by the sea to find a hoolabaloo of a mess.

I take the blame for this fiasco.

Munkie has relinquished his claim on Tear. The claim was made under Munkie's, Veet's and my name. Claim now belongs to Veet and me. I will now take full responsibility of this dark and dreary city.

I will be updating the 6-4 claim here.

Yinnie.

Why's Tear is so small ? It's is MAJOR port city, not a fishing village. It must be of a size of 1\3 Narsis at least

Actually, Tear is the proper size. It's just that Narsis is way oversized.

edit: Also, those pictures aren't all of the same place. Put them together in your mind, and you will see how big Tear really is Wink.

Actually, I may be mistaken, but I think that Yinnie is redoing some of Tear, so it may not look anything like that. I'd like to see some screenies as well if it has changed alot.

Anyway, she has a lot to do besides her claim, and map 6 is waaaay off ... this may not be *that* high on the Yinnie priority list. Smile
