Fantasy City Project:Main Page
The Fantasy City Project is a shared world project to create the ultimate fantasy city, complete with inhabitants, locations and adventure seeds. I invite everyone to add to the city.
At this point I am only begining to build the skeleton of the city. I don't even have a name yet (let's discuss that on the discussion page). I have started a list of guidelines for Location Building. This should be a generic, self contained city and not contain anything specific to a published world.
About the City
This is a megopolis with 150,000+ inhanitants. It is an old city, of 3000+ years. It is ruled by a city council consisting of elected members of the upper class and a ruling Concilator who is chosen by the council.
- Foundation: Who, when, what, why, where, and how was the city created?
- Civil War: The war that lead to an overthrow of elven supreme power
- Creation of the Council: Why, when, and how the council was created.
The main districts of the city are:
- Governmental: The city council are located here, along with the meeting houses for the guilds, and the hall of records.
- Academic: The University and library both exists here.
- Wharf: The docks and shipyards, plus a rough and tumble area of housing, bars, shaops and inns for the dockworkers and visiting crew. Very rough and tumble.
- Merchant: A large area adjacent to the warfs and near the city gates where traders gathers. There is a large open air market and shops here. Criminals recieve justice in front of this area, including public humiliation and execution.
- Common: The lower class district. Crime and gangs are not uncommon here.
- Middle: This is the community of the middle class.
- High: This is where the wealthy and noble of the city reside.
- Justice: The public court is here, as is the jails and the guard barracks.
- Mage: The guild halls of the mages and their private guild halls, homes and librarys are here.
- Sewers: The Sewers are below the city and may have exits in any district above.
Outside the the walls is considered the Farming district. Villas and their inhabitants receive protection from the city.
Woot, I will ceratnily put this to good use!
