Paranor Island was started on Simtropolis in June 2008, as the Kingdom of Paranor Island. Early on, it became an ambassador nation in the SimCity Journal Union and continues in this role almost a year later. When browsing early updates you will notice that the nation has changed a lot in the past year with several cities being restarted and the island's location changed. The most recent reboot, and most accurate information can be found in Update 52 of this CJ. This also includes a brief history of the nation and can be used as a good starting point for somebody to explore this CJ.
