I have been chatting with other writers recently and we have been discussing description in fantasy novels.  The main back and forth is in regards to how much should there be.  I am of the belief that less is more.  There should be enough description to let people know where they are being transported to and at that point let their imaginations run wild with the specifics.  Others think that each tapestry on the wall should be described in excruciating detail even as far as where the materials come from that made it.  What do you all think?
