Eagle Eye Tower
A building tall enough to fit his Ego
agle Eye is a high rise tower located in the heart of High Perch, the capital city of Hawklore. Serves as boarding for the rich, elite, and Hawken himself.
Tallest in the World
With a view overlooking almost the entire country, the sight is breathtaking, to say the least. Hawken himself resides at the top of the 123rd floor building of the towering building. Eagle Eye was the first large-scale building to be built in High Perch, Hawken wanted his status to be seen immediately. The tower has grown in size since its original building. As other cities around Tikor grew, Hawken made sure his city stayed a step ahead. If a large tower of any kinda was being built, be it religious, political, or scientific, he made sure Eagle's Eye was better. The largest increase in the number of floors happened when the illustrious Prime was beginning its mega expansion. The god-king went on a mad spree to find an architect or dreamer with the courage to go bigger. It shows as to how personal he takes his dwelling. The god himself even picked the spot that the builders would break soil on. To say the land and the tower is sacred would be an understatement. With Hawken being a god, his home is considered a temple, its very land sacred ground. There is always a few groups of worshippers praying up to the god on the tower grounds.
All the Shinies
The uber tower is about opulence and grandiose fit for a god. Every inch of floor was handcraft custom from the best marble and the best wood. Linens with thread counts that boggles the mind. Every inch of the looming tower is built with the best in mind. The budget for the luxury building is always unlimited, Hawken has no interest in hearing the word no when it comes to his domicile. The eccentric deity formed a special scout company to do nothing but search Tikor for the rarest of minerals, metals, and gems. To him it wasn't just about it looking good, it had to have a story of rarity that befits the reputation of his home. The reception desk itself is worth more than an entire towns net worth. The reputation for beauty has persuaded many architects, artists, and visionaries to High Perch in the hopes of being known as selected by the notoriously picky ruler. As the allure of the city and its crown grew, the rich and powerful began to flock toward the tower in an effort to curry favor to the vain deity.
Half of the towers below Hawken's penthouse are also premium living quarters for the rich and famous. After the final expansion, the foreman in charge of the project suggested that all the additional space, it would make great living quarters. Up until that point, the hulking building had only housed Hawken himself, along with rooms for him to conduct business. The idea interested Hawken, knowing the advantages he could leverage. And so 2,000 apartments were constructed inside the unused floors of the tower. Eager to get into the God King's good graces, wealthy merchants, barons and others, every living quarter space is usually owned at any given time of the year.
God Above You All
The biggest benefit of the height of Eagle's Eye is that it can be seen from anywhere in High Perch, and a substantial distance from the city. It reinforces the message of Hawken being the supreme ruler of Hawklore and his ability to watch over all. The very top of the tower was formed to resemble a hawk's head and in that large fixture lies Hawklore's penthouse. The 25,000 sq foot penthouse is a shrine to the hubris of man. Diamond encrusted window seals, floors made from rare marble only mined in a cave in the Ebon Cascade. The list goes on, each piece has a story and an exuberant price tag. It is known that one of the best ways to earn favor with the king is to listen to his elaborate and lengthy stories about each of his favorite pieces.
Annual Style Makeover
As time goes by, Hawken makes sure the tower stays up to date in look and technology. On average, Eagle Eye receives two major renovations a year. The God King keeps track of all the latest styles and if he finds something that strikes his fancy, then construction is underway. Often he'll find that a style or material he liked is being used more, this also prompts construction. His goal of Eagle Eye being the crowning jewel means being unique. Experts are brought in as part of any large-scale makeover to ensure that the looks are stable but rare and beautiful.
While a deity, Hawken has many of the same trappings that his mortal flock has. One of them being vanity, Hawken is obsessed with keeping up with styles and techniques. Part of the beauty and success of the many renovations is Hawken's reasonableness when it comes to his ambitions. He would always put form and function above even his own personal taste. No matter how often he would demand a change, it would always seem to work out, showcasing the God King's eye for style.
All That Shimmers
Precious metals are the name of the game at Eagle's Eye. The rarer the substance, the better. Hawken personally commissioned divers to find the rarest minerals and gem to further support his aura of exclusiveness. Every inch of the tower and his ground is blindingly shiny with gemstones and polished perfectly.
