Sigil Art – Kingsly

Greetings, travelers!  We are once again going to be spending some time today looking at one of the cities of the Tellest universe—specifically, at their sigil, though we’ll be learning a bit more about them while we’re at it.

We’ve spent a little bit of time in some of the ritzier cities in the world, but the one that we are looking at today is particularly affluent.  Appropriately called Kingsly, this city is home to a lot of wealthy and affluent people along the northern coast of Aeratul.  We haven’t spend a considerable amount of time in Aeratul yet, but we did see a city called Winthrop (which we’ll be seeing more of in their own sigil post next year, as we’re working on that with Francois at the time of this writing) that’s nearby.  It will be nice to expand on that part of the world there.

In any case, Kingsly’s sigil is a golden crown on a striped field of white and royal purple.

There is a very good chance that you wouldn’t really see a chipped version of the Kingsly sigil unless there was some recent disaster or attack by someone who thought the magnificent city would make an easy target for banditry or the like.  These wealthy chaps aren’t the type to let things fall into disrepair, not from a functional standpoint, but because it doesn’t leave them looking right.  It’s a peasant’s move to allow things to remain damaged, after all.

With all the infrastructure that Kingsly has, there are plenty of places for the city’s banner to hang from.  Though they are affluent, they’re not oblivious all the time, so there are quite a few people who reside in the city who work at earning their coin due to the nature of their work, from construction, to even blacksmithing.  Of course, there are also plenty of ship captains who bear the Kingsly sigil on their vessels, as the city is a host of collectors of special antiquities.  They are very protective of the things they’ve acquired, so they equip their collaborators with only the best.

We mentioned before that Kingsly isn’t about to let their sigil chip and fade.  On the other hand, city pride would compel people to leave their mark in a lot of places.  You don’t get wealthy by not putting your name on things, after all.  To that end, in northern Aeratul, you’d likely see a great many versions of the painted sigil.

As always, we leave you with one final picture: the phone background.  I hope you enjoy it!

We’ve still got plenty of city sigils to look at.  It’s enough to have us covered throughout 2024 and then some, so make sure you’re popping back every few weeks (or quicker) to see it when we have these to show off!
