As far as I know, the Academy is located right at the centre of the inner city, which is in turn surrounded by the outer city on all sides.  

I tend to see the 6 towers and the shield dome as a single unit, so I don't really see it as having any tower coming first, and instead prefer to have them appear balanced (ie. opposing elements on opposite sides).  

By the way, what did you mean when you said that the hills are in the east?  :confused

Well, these two houses are fairly in the middle of the plain, put if I had to choose a direction, aren't they closer to these two hilltops on the right side(=east) than to those where Ximax is written?

Concerning the entrance, if we want to have hills in the back, but that's unimportant, I think.
Is there any mythical/magic reason to have the entrance showing to a special direction, other than aestetic ones?

I don't know of any magical reason.  The most obvious reason I see is that most of the people would be arriving in the city from the east, so if they're going to head straight for the Academy, having the entrance in the east would be most convenient for them.

I have to agree that east would really be the most preferably way.

Then it will be the east, though it might be at the bottom for now, for practical reasons , have to try it out.


And please post again which configuration, it is quicker for me than going through all posts again.

I prefer the configuration with opposing elements on opposite sides.

And where should the entrance be, facing which tower(s)?

Hmm...well, Talia, I remember speaking to you about the colours on IRC some time ago, not sure if you got what I said though, with your IRC client misbehaving and all that.  Anyway, in case you didn't, I think I said something about grey usually being considered a colour which is a balance between black and white, which happen to be the colours of the two archschools, so perhaps it could be used to represent the Academy, rather than the wind tower.  The colours for the other towers have been deicded, right?

But the wind tower color is not grey on the actual pic in the first post, but well, lilac if not purple. Purple didn't look good next to the red.

Grey could stand for the dome itself.

That sounds like a good idea.  I wasn't referring to the picture on the first page, actually, but an idea I remember being brought up in the discussion some time ago.  I didn't know if you were still going to go with that, so I thought I'd bring it up.

The thread has been restored!  Yay!  Ahem.  Well, hopefully we'll get around to finishing up the Academy sometime this year.
