Culmen sprawls across and climbs atop the highest mountain in the exact center of Tellus looking out over the world. It's cursed with being in a perpetual state of snow...

Culmen was built by Wido Twinning. Not the entire city, but all the terribly awkward buildings that flood its streets and line its sky. In the old days, Culmen was just the castle and the city stretched out but never up. It was cramped. It was crowded. But most of all, it was miserable...

 

Wido set to work transforming the flat, one level city into a city of heights...

 

Some of his buildings leaned to the left or to the right, or to the front or to the back, depending on which side you looked at them. Some of his buildings started straight but then, abruptly, jutted out to some odd angle for no apparent reason. And even others began and ended straight but had some trouble getting there along the way. At some point on their way up they took a detour in their straightness, and, I would say curved, but there was nothing even remotely round about the turns these buildings took on their way into the skies...
