The Historica City Guide (Chapter II Edition)

Recommended Posts

The first edition was never really completed and as I have a completely different lay-out in my mind now, it seemed better to just make a new one.

Also, it would be great if you guys give me some help with the herald of your city :classic: It is easily done with these templates:

You can already reply :classic:

When I have the time, I will upload the information :classic: In the meantime, I want everyone to create a herald for their city, but only Kaliphlin members have responded to that so far :sceptic:

In Avalonia we have Countys. Benoic (my county) donĀ“t have a large city, just smaller villages. What do I (we)do?

DeGothia, but you *are* a (minor) Lord right? Every nobleman during the middleages would have had a Heraldry(afaik) or perhaps a city(they too can be small) or country heraldry

Minor Lord?! I would consider my self a mighty and rich Lord in a smaller County. Why have a great city so close the Pearl City?

And I will come up with a heraldry for Benoic, the most built County in Historica!

Edit: The Heraldry of the County of Benoic is done!

I think Avalonian counties should count just as well as cities, as such a feodal society probably isn't all centered on the cities?

Benoic is an excellent example of a county which definitely should be included in a guide of Historica.

DG: I really like your shield, even though I think the text would be a bit hard to read at minifig scale. The motto sounds quite pacifistic btw :wink:

Regarding Barqa, I will try to come up with a suitable heraldry when time permits.

I think Mitgardia isn't really that heavy about claiming territory and building cities... :look: so I don't think that there will be very many Mitgardian shields.

However, I might do one if I have much time :classic:

Maybe Mitgardia is more centered around clan/family/group in other way which has its own heraldry?

My mitgardian cities are rather democratic and have elected mayors more or less independent from the overlords

@dG: Yeah, for Avalonia, it will be better indeed to work with Counties and Cities :classic:

@Gravgunner: that is a possibility as well :)

@dG (part 2): That's what I mean!!! Perfect :sweet: :sweet: :sweet:

@Gideon: (about the pacifistic motto) Avalonian hippies . I am looking forward to the herald of Barqa :sweet:

@Garmadon: There are some Mitgardian cities, but clans for example have their herald as well. Also you can create a round herald if you want: http://www.classic-castle.com/howto/articles/RoundShields.html

@Jeroenaa: check the first post of this topic :wink:

@Kabel, just make a herald for your cities or I will forget them :devil: Even the most democratic cities have a herald to represent them :classic:

Ok, thanks, I will make a cool shield, do I post it here? I am afraid I can't upload photos of the houses and other buildings for my city, but I hope to get them up as soon as possible. First I need a name for my city, any suggestions?

Make it sound like a Mitgardian name :laugh: And you can upload it here :classic:

@Kabel: ok :classic:

@all: it would be cool that after a month, all cities/counties/outposts/clans/... can look like this:

Benoic

As de Gothia is the first non Kaliphlin who responded, Benoic has the honour to be completed as first :classic:

@Damaximus: I checked out the link, but I don't understand how to make it. I guess I won't be making a shield now.

You see there two templates:

TemplateOvalShield.jpg & TemplateSolidOvalShield.jpg

Just copy paste them in Paint / photoshop / Gimp / ... and be creative :classic:

Thanks, I can use paint I guess, not sure though. When I get my city shield up, it worked, if not, it didn't work. Thanks for the help!!

Indeed and although I'm not yet really convinced of the use of this topic personally as it's (also) going to be a moc index which already exists. But here's the first one from Mitgardia:

yeeez, perfect! :classic:

Well, there is indeed already a MOC index, but this one will not be just a sum up of all the MOC's. Also not all the MOC's will be indexed in here :classic: It will be more a touristic information topic about all our beautifull cities in Historica :classic:

I created something similar in the beginning of GoH, but that wasn't so organised and it became quickly a mess :sceptic:

Unlike the MOC index, the MOC's will be grouped by city and not by member who made it :classic: The first 2 completed examples show this (Benoic & Petraea)
