ARTISTS OF CANDEZZA

Welcome everyone to a new community set! Credit to lordpat for coming up with Candezza and letting me use the idea.
Welcome to Candezza! Things here are not like you are used to! Ineed, here art and creativity not only serves the soul, but also gives kings, emperors and aristocrats power! The plane itself reacts ina unique way to art, illuminating the souls of humans, allowing them to think of brilliant ideas, or even making the wild and land of the Candezza itself bend to the will of the artist. And more importantly, to the people who own the art... Indeed, far from a luxury, art is a valuable resource in Candezza. The strength of a kingdom is often meassured by the quality of its pieces. And rulers know how to take advantage of this.
Among the many kingdoms, five large schools hold influence over several of them. The painters, the sculptors and architects, the writers, the performers, and the musicians. Each of these aproaches lead to drasitcally different results, however, there have been many instances of colaboration between styles for absolutely stunning pieces.
Although the kings, emperors and noblemen of Candezza compete each other for the greatest pieces, and in turn the greatest army and economy, lately new movements have started to emerge. Smaller investors, creators that appeal to a different crowd, fed up with the cruel and materalistic aristocrats. New ideas, maybe dangerous, are starting to circulate the many villages and towns. Ideas of who should rule, ideas of fairness and justice...
For unknown reasons, it seems that this world enjoys creativity, ingenuity and sucsess of all kinds. As such, achieving great feats will grant you mysterious and unique abilties....
As for mechanics, Candezza is an allied-color set with a major enchantment theme. Expect to see more on the mechanics in an upcoming post. For now, though, that is all.
