Aquilon


Description

From the description at the Embassy Row Historical Site:

In the destruction that followed the Certification Riots, two Embassies (essentially two rooms) disappeared.  In the chaos, anything was possible.  Some felt that the wind-like damage in the front rooms and the method of construction popular in Aquilon were no coincidence. Like the People of the Wind, the Aquilonites used wind to make their walls and furniture.  The vigorous currents of air (achingly cold in this case ) were only represented in the ambassador’s desk, a lovely example of their famed wind engineering.  Though small, if destabilized, the forces unleashed could have been devastating.
