Hall of Unity

Dedicated to the Pallernic Peoples

Here in this magnificent building stands the original flag of the old kingdom. It may be worn, it may be damaged, but it is a symbol of our people. As long as it stays in the hall, Pallernia will remain united until the land beneath us cracks and we all die.
— Atelwelf the Elder, 991 AA
  The Hall of Unity was built in 927 AA in the city of Aurkustel. It serves as a reminder to the Pallernic people and shows them what they are capable of if they stay united. The original Rohvachtzenvagge, the flag of Pallernia, is kept safe in the building. Most of the Hall of Unity is dedicated to the central chamber that holds the flag, but there are plenty of other attractions to see. From ancient weapons and armour from the days of Saint Tiyla, to valuable books about the once-divided nation.  


Magnificent and colossal in size, the Hall of Unity towers over the upper-class parts of the capital city. It is built from local slate and the outside walls are coated with daub and whitewashed, making it shine in the sunlight and giving it a resistance agianst the elements.  

The Octagon

The Hall of Unity is a building with three floors, all of which are in the shape of an octagon. The floors of the top are smaller than the ones on the bottom. On top of the building is a great pyre that is used for special occasions, such as Unification Day. Beneath the three layers lies the basement. There they hold many of the treasured relics from the days before Pallernia dared to call itself an empire.

Unification Day

The annual Unification Day ceremonies take place in the Hall of Unity. The central chamber and the great pyre atop the building are crucial for the yearly ritual.

Coronation Ceremony

For centuries the monarchs of the Empire of Pallernia have held their coronation ceremonies in the Hall of Unity. Before being crowned, the monarch kneels in front of the old flag and gives the oath to protect it, and all the peoples of Pallernia.   Several prominent leaders from foreign countries have also used the building for their coronations. These foreign coronations are seen as a way of improving relations and showing unity.

Well, well, well, fancy meeting you here, in the comment section of your own article. It's your local feedback wizard here to leave a bit of inspiration for you on this fine evening.   I'll have to disagree with yeslittlehummingbird above (sorry!) but having "poppin'" CSS is absolutely relevant. Your simple but distinctive fonts and colour scheme reinforce the minimalism of the article. chef's kiss It's poetic, or something.   I feel like the "Octagon" section could use a little expansion or at least more concrete descriptors. "A three-story octagonal structure that tapers slightly,..." covers the first half of the paragraph in far less words and might mesh better with the remainder of the paragraph.   I've got a question about the items stored there. Do people often come and view the books and other artifacts like a museum, or are they carefully protected from prying eyes?   Anyways, I have to get going. The work of the feedback wizard requires adequate sleep and it's time for bed for me. Keep up the great work :)
