The structures are often adorned with intricate carvings, decorative flourishes and infused with countless pearls and gems. Illusion magic is infused deep into the structures. The city's builders have used their mastery of magic to create buildings that appear to be far larger and more impressive than they actually are. This makes the city seem even grander than it actually is.
