The People of Suberia

The people of Suberia take great pride in there world. They have many old traditions, delveloped in the dark ages, and now stay with them, because they are important in Suberian culture. Recently, the traditional ideas in art have become challenged. Some think that this is the begening of a cultural revolution. There are two major superpowers of Suberia. The The Enith empire is the most affecting of it's people, because it is the only geopolitical one. The area around there is more focused around change. The Merchants Guild does not effect is people much, because it just has partial control over its area. The other sixth of civilized Suberia is simaler to the area controled by The Merchants Guild, in being rooted in tradition. The people of suberia are in the midst of a cultural war. The old and traditional way of art is being challanged by the newer way. The old way is abstract, and the newer way is more focused on realism. The newer way is practiced most in The Enith empire and the traditional way is still dominant almost everywhere else.

as good as the real thing, and if you aim for realism you will never be satisfied. However, if you make it abstract, like visual poetry, then you can achieve your goal, and you will have created something unique. Their song is similar. Different abstract sounds mean different things. There is no strict code around these things, but what different things mean is based on suberian culture. Poetry is not part of traditional art. the thought behind that is that if you are creating poetry with your song and sculptures, then normal poetry is just a more forceful, less skilled version of that. New art is
everything traditional art is not. It focuses on realism. It has written poetry. The song is less about what it sounds mean and more about how they sound. The focus on realism is because if you can come close, then the imperfections are beautiful, and even a less real mountain view is still a mountain view. The written poetry is because if you spend less attention on how it looks then you can work on becoming more skillful instead. If you let the song's meaning get in the way, then it will not sound as good and have less meaning for the soul. New art is generally more open than traditional.
