Red!

Well, I don't really think there's an official order, but that's kind of what's always felt right to me.

Blue! Just to make it confusing.  I think Blue is always on top for me or on the left if hanging.

I think you should start a civil war about which color should go on top:devil:

Kaliphlin has been at peace too long.  The Desert King has been minding his own business.

Extra pedantic question: should left flags (4495a) 4495a.t1.png only be used on the left and right (4495b) 4495b.t1.png on the right? \s

The unwritten rules on right vs. left flags?  *huh*

My life cannot handle this level of complication... :grin:

It’s actually the opposite: left flags on the right, and right flags on the left. Otherwise you get kicked out of the guild and sent to Avalonia, where your penance will be to hug every tree in the Enchanted Forest.

Blue is more important. :dsad2:  No really, it actually is the more important Kali color (IMHO) because we share red with Nocty.

Also I think if you really were trying to make purple you probably should put more blue in than red. :laugh:

Ok, blue it is.  :thumbup:
I think sharing a color with Nocturnus is part of their plan to start the color civil war, once Kaliphlin is weaken they can reclaim their status as open Guild.
Evil and genius at the same time. The perfect plan. No one could see it coming. :laugh::poke::devil:

I am ashamed to say, I didn't even know that there were two molds.

Well, I have been here in spirit and lurked a bit.   Waiting for the day I can build my shack in the backyard and finally unpack my lego collection because we don't have any room in the interior of our house.  But shacks are expensive, at least ones with insulation, windows, and AC to keep out the Texas heat.  :)   I have a lot of ideas I want to build that have been stacking up for some time.

Those of you with towns/cities, did you make a post for the city itself and if so, do you keep it up to date (other than the HSS)?

I'm planning to do this with my town, Batuhan.  I've got a draft on my blog: https://lego.jtooker.com/batuhan/ and I'll keep this one up to date and was just curious if I should make a post here (otherwise I'll probably just put it as a reply to this thread).  Also, feel free to read through the draft and let me know if you have any critiques or corrections.

Just the HSS for me--but I was never too into the city-building thing, so even my HSS only has like two MOCs. :laugh:

There is a GoH wiki which probably has some of the cities like Barqa but I'm going to guess that it's not up-to-date!

You are correct - but I plan to add my town there too.  MOCs for the town are not coming too quickly (I noticed I started the map over a year ago).

I've finally got enough MOCs together to 'officially' put the town of Batuhan on the map.  Here is a link to its HSS post and I'll add it to the wiki sometime soon.  The town is located north of Barqa and east of Eastgate south of the Wither Woods.

Batuhan

Batuhan is a growing settlement south of the Wither Woods in northern Kaliphlin along the crossroads of major trade routes.

 

Batuhan Batuhan

 

History

While farmers south of the Wither Woods have always scraped by, recent improvements to the climate accompanied by an increase in trade through this region have given rise to a proper town at the crossroads of the Woodbrow Road and the Wester Road. This town is called Batuhan. It is located 40 miles west of Eastgate and 50 miles north of Barqa.

 

Ahesh Ahesh

 

Ahesh, who fought in the Battle of the Wither Woods, lead the town to prosperity after the battle claimed many of its citizens’ lives.

 

Aarash the Ardent Aarash the Ardent

 

Over the years after the battle, the influence and protection of Eastgate diminished. Batuhan was left to defend itself and the trade route itself. Ahesh took on this challenge and created the Guard of Batuhan. A dragon was chosen to adorned the shields in honor of the dragon that changed Ahesh’s fortune. Aarash grew into a young man and a capable captain before taking over as the Emir of Batuhan for his late father.

Geography

Rough, but plowable terrain surrounds Batuhan with many farms to the immediate south and a few to the north. Principally, the Woodbrow Road cuts through the smoother parts of the terrain.

The Wither Woods to the North border the town and the main trade road. They are quite unhospitable to civilized folk.

The Barlas river feeds into a small lake with the same name. This creates a natural eastern barrier to the town, along with the rising terrain from which the river flows.

Further away, the port city of Eastgate lies to the west. The Westersands exist past the farmland, further to south and east. Even further south is the city of Barqa.

Military

Ignored by the Desert King in Petraea, Batuhan has had to form its own guard to protect its citizens and merchants passing through. Since the Battle of Historica, the only constant threat has been from bandits and other evil creatures in the Wither Woods.

 

Great Wall of Batuhan Great Wall of Batuhan

 

The Great Wall of Batuhan was raised to aid in this defense using the newly created Buğra Quarry. This guard and military wall have not escaped notice from Petraea, but in this time of peace, the Desert King has been content with Batuhan’s guard. It directly increases the trade that is so valuable to Kaliphlin and the wall would serve as a convenient defense against Avalonia, should the need ever arise.

Economy

Trade has been largely responsible for the grown of this settlement. It has attracted immigrants, which are the primary source of population growth. With the protection Batuhan provides to merchants, a tax is received.

Farms to the south, also under the protection of the Batuhan Guard, provide food and textiles for the town’s inhabitants.

The wall and many of the fortified buildings are only possible due to the Buğra Quarry located through the Wither Woods along the Wester Road.

The fortune of prosperity has given rise to Batuhan, but the wise know this is only fleeting. Merchants will not be so willing to hand over their gold if they become threatened on the road as they were before. Townsfolk may become rebellious if the farms fail to produce enough food. Farmers may be less tolerant of the new cultures if their livelihood is threatened. And those in power will find well-supported competition should any trouble arise.

Inhabitants

The inhabitants of Batuhan are mainly immigrants. The time of peace and trade has brought many peoples to settle down here. Being so close to the sea and on a major trade route to Avalonia, many people have come from Varlyrio.

Dwarves have come from as far as Nocturnus to work in the quarry and craft stone in town.

Many of the Kaliphlinian farmers have accepted the cultural shifts, or at least tolerate them in town in exchange for their business.

Lizardfolk and other outlaws occupy the Wither Woods and are a constant threat to peace.
