In the heart of the woodlands of Avalonia lies Gruven, a small large city in Avalonia

Posted Image

Gruven is a small city not far from the capital in Glevum. it is bustling with Humans and Halflings (dwarves and Hobbits). it lies above the richest gold mine in Avalonia, the great mine Gruven, which is what supplies Avalonia with most of its wealth. It is a very popular trade city due to the trade route, the river and the cities riches. The land provides for its inhabitants and is safe.

Glevum belongs to Lord Legonardo of Glevum, the protector of the prosperous land that Glevum is.

Merry Christmas EBs!

Looking good but I´ve to say that your city will be the biggest in all of Avalonia... :wink: Not even Albion can measure in size. I thought that Glevum was a county or land in the guild of Avalonia, not a city..  :classic:

My watchtower for the guild Avalonia.

Although small in size much can be seen from the Golden watchtower. Its view covers the whole of the mining area in avaloia, providing the Great western Paradise most of its wealth. This is my first medieval build and i hope it meets everyone's standards. the tower would be taller but I fell short of parts.
thanks to  De Gothia for his awesome banner design and our guild leader for his awesome techniques.

We are allowed cities right? (I hope so)
as for the size I could easily downsize it, I didn't realize it was so big!

Of course you can build cities!!  :classic: My comment was to the fact that all of your land was meant to be a city  :wink:

The tower is really nice as I said before! Great job!

I think de Gothia is trying to say if the area marked as Glevum was a region and not just one city.  If it were all one big city it would be way bigger than the capital and not what you are intending.  Maybe your lands/area should be named Glevum, but your town could have another name and simply be located inside Glevum.  Maybe a name like Glevumville or Glevumia or something completely different sounding.  That way,if this was a farm or something outside the city can still be named "Glevum farm".

EDIT:  Or the city could be called Glevum and the area could also be called Glevum but I think the size of the city of Glevum need only be represented as an X on the map so it is better scaled.

Ok I get the idea I think what I'll do is make the entire city Gruven and keep the area Glevum.
sorry for all the trouble.

Might still be a little large, but we get the idea, the city is along the road in Glevum and it is called Gruven.  Good call!  I look forward to seeing it develop!

Just to announce it here as well, I accept your fine offer, and soon I will be sending my envoys to arrange with you the location where we could settle.

Best regards

May my embassy be in the upper left part of the town square? Also, if your city ever comes under attack, your citizens are welcome to shelter in our embassy.

We in Glevum aren't very fond of torture, but punishments must be dealt to those who need them.
This is for the Lord High Executioner title in Avalonia
