Historica is home to many towns, villages, hamlets, and even a few Cities. The Royal Cartographer's Guild of Albion and the Avalonia's foreign affairs minister wish to officially recognize the many settlements of Historica. As a prerequisite to official recognition and inclusion in the "Royal Registry of Historica's Locations of Note" and "Avalonian Sites and Monuments: a comprehensive guide" each settlement must prove that they contain the minimum facilities to provide for their residents.
To establish your settlement, you must post MOCs from the following categories. These MOCs CAN be already completed, but they MUST not already be referenced to a different location. (if you try to alter a description of an existing MOC to fit this challenge, you will not be allowed to enter ANY settlements, so do not edit topics you already posted. you can add a post later on in your topic, but if I see that the topic was already posted before Feb 14th, but edited after Feb 13th, it will not be allowed as part of this challenge.) There are a couple of building types that can be counted for multiple types (a Fishery for example can be counted as a nautical AND agricultural).
Here are the categories:
REQ - Agriculture - Grains & Produce: Farm*, Mill, Granary, Orchard
Agriculture - Livestock: Farm*, Cattle/Horse Ranch, Swineherd, Sheepfold, Fishery
Nautical: Harbor, Shipwright, Quay, Fishery*, Ferryman
REQ - Military: Keep, Barracks, Gatehouse, Tower, Castle, Fort
Religious: Chapel, Monastery, Temple, Shrine
Medical: Apothecary, Herbalist, Infirmary, Physician
Hospitality: Food & Beverage: Bakery, Butcher, Winery, Brewery, Tavern
REQ - Hospitality - Lodging: Inn, Stables, Coach House
REQ - Laborers: Lumber Mill, Mine, Stone Cutter, Mason
REQ - Craftsmen - General Goods: Cooper, Wainwright, Tannery, Dyer, Glass Blower
Craftsmen/Merchant - Arms & Armor: Blacksmith, Bowyer, Fletcher, Armorer
Craftsmen/Merchant - Clothing: Cobbler, Seamstress, Furrier, Woolen Mill
Craftsmen/Merchant - Specialty: Candle Maker, Wood Carver, Bookbinder, Jeweler, Potter
Services: Herald, Cartographer, Money Lender, Scribe, Courier, Shipping House
Scholars: Observatory, Alchemist, Philosopher, Astrologer
Entertainers: Minstrel, Fortune Teller, Performing Troupe, Theatre
Administrative (Town or City only): Town Hall, Chancery, Forum, Courthouse
Now, the examples provided are not the only things you can build in a category, they are just options. Also, the build must be substantial - showing an interior of one room, or throwing a bunch of bricks up on a plate will not be acceptable entries.
Hamlet - There are 5 categories that are required for a Hamlet (the minimum recognized settlement) - Agricultural (either one), Military, Hospitality (either one), Laborer, and Craftsmen.
Village - For a Village, you must meet the Hamlet requirements plus meet a total of 8 of the 16 categories.
Town - For a Town, you must meet the Hamlet requirement, plus a minimum of 2 Craftsmen buildings, both Agricultural categories, and both Hospitality categories, plus meet a total of 10 of the 16 categories.
City - For a City, you must meet the requirements for a Town, plus one administrative building, plus meet a total of 14 of the 16 categories.
Port - For a Port, you must meet the Village requirements, including one Nautical building.
For this task, there is no time limit, and again, is open to all Historicans. I will be starting a separate thread for this once I get home tonight where you can post a link to your topics. Each person should have only one reply in this topic, where they will post all of their entries.
You can have more than one settlement recognized if you wish.
You should only have one post per Settlement. Feel free to ask questions, but I will delete them once they have been answered, and compile the answers in the thread below. Do not post for a settlement unless you have a build to post. I will delete any topics that do not contain a link to an existing MOC (no MOCs in progress allowed either)
Let me know if you have any questions.
Some further ideas for the categories are in this list curated by @Grover. But again, even this extensive list is not exhaustive; if you think your build qualifies for a category, put it there. Creativity is always encouraged!
