Bird-eye view of the village. The promo team needed elevation, a wall, and the sacred tree.
Since Ionians would usually not build walls, (they almost never had to fight off invaders) I explored versions where an Arbomancer quickly raises thorns and vines, then consolidates it with stones.
More wall explorations, this time going for a more home-made look.
Variations for terraced height.
Big mood explorations.
What if an Arbomancer made barbwire out of thorny vines? It would probably look like this.
The designs also changed quite a bit in the end, but the red tree and the wall remained similar.
