2010 Trixie Celebration

A Trixie for Tuscarora? I never expected that! Thanks to my loyal audience for all your support! This cj is now retired but why not have a little celebration?

End of the Line

I got my computer out of storage today to grab some files. I thought it would be a good time to take the final Tuscarora pics. No editing here... just the basics. Here is what was never shown (mostly) as well as what was on the agenda. This will be the final update for Tuscarora. The plugins folder is just far too difficult to manage. But don't fret! This is a big update!

Let's start with Bogdon

Here is a bit of the coast just north of Granya

This little spot made an appearance in Schulmania. The rail line you see goes around the mountains between Devlin And Granya. Technically... you could walk there faster, as the crow flies that is.

Mineola is the sight of Tuscarora's old airport and is the spot where I taught myself how to make sunken highways.

Fenwick: Midwick Plaza

Today we are going back to Fenwick so this is a great time for me to let you all in on a secret. This is my favorite city in Tuscarora. Bogdon was laid out to be the gem, but over the last year I have really grown fond of Fenwick. I have prepared a night-shot only update. We will be focusing on the neighborhood of Midwick, specifically, Midwick Plaza (no doubt inspired by Times Square, NYC.) I changed a few minor things since yesterday's teasers. Enjoy!

Flourtown

Today I have prepared for you a little place known as Flourtown. Just east of Julrich, Flourtown hugs the southeast bank of the Raven River and strattles a creek running down from the mountains. I whipped this up in the past week, and I'd be lying if I didn't say this town was inspired by Granya. That appeared to be a farily popular topic so I thought I'd try a spin on the "sloping banks" theme. I hope you enjoy the result.

flourtownoverview1.jpg

flourtownoverview2.jpg

Flourtown grew up just down the hill from Ravenhill Orphanage. An ominous sounding name but also mis-leading. This was, and still is, a wonderful place to grow up. Founded as an asylum to children left as orphans after their parents either met their fate by Ingomar, or died making the journey to Tuscarora.

Here is Carlsberg Intercontinental Airport. Build on the opposite side of Berlinger bay as Bogdon International, this new transportation hub will ease it's predecessor of nearly all of Tuscarora's international passengers. Bogdon Intl. will still be utilized, but primarily for cargo and private liners.

Suburban Life: Julrich

replies10.jpg

Julrich

julrichoverview1.jpg

Much like it's neighbor to the west, Julrich lies between the Dunbar and Raven rivers. Residents can travel into Fenwick via the southern Highway 507 or the northern Highway 9. Highway 9 is also a well traveled route through Fenwick into Bogdon. Highway 1 begins in central Julrich, just north of Highway 507's start. It then tunnels under the Julrich North Train and Bus Depot, and moves through Banksville toward Bogdon.

julrichcentral1.jpg

julrichcentral2.jpg

Between central Julrich and Fenwick are many homes on tiny lots. Some larger, more affluent homes are to the southeast along the Raven river.

julrichcentralsprawl1.jpg

julrichcourse1.jpg

A creek meanders through town before being channeled underground temporarily. An underground mall, built to rival the large shopping mall off of Highway 9, complements the creek before it trickles through Slipstone Park and into the Raven.

Granya

I was told that driving into Granya from Devlin would present me with some of the most impressive sights Tuscarora has to offer. I didn't secure an international license before I left, so I took a ride up with the editor of a local paper. We took the bridge past the statue of Tuscaros in Devlin and made our way up the coast.

Granya eventually expanded to the other side of the inlet. A grand hotel was constucted but significant retail space was not. If you stay here, you'll have to ferry across for shopping. The marina, however, is on the northern side with the hotel.

Devlin

I caught the train today. I took a little trek up north to see Devlin. Devlin began as a tiny shipping and fishing town on Evan's Bay. The bay is just a quick walk from the banks of the Muirchect River. About 80 years ago a canal was dug so trips around Tuscarora's Flats could be avoided. Devlin exploded in population once the canal was dug. There was little room for expansion in Old Devlin (as it is now referred to), so the masses settled the area across the river. Now Devlin's suburbs are just beginning to shake hands with those of Bogdon. Soon the cities will have run into eachother. For now, though, there is still a bit of wilderness in between. Developers are salivating.

Welcome to Devlin!

Last year the convention center was built. I didn't catch the name of it but the space issue was solved by building a portion over the railway, which then tunnels under downtown to emerge just before crossing the Muirchect to Devlin Mids. The small port area between old and new Devlin is known as the Mids.

Ingomar

ingomaroverview1.jpg

I took a short train ride out of Bogdon this morning to see Tuscarora's oldest structure. Ingomar Castle is tucked away in the foothills of the Olive Mountains and resides over the modern day town of Ingomar. This is also the location of Ravenhill University. There is a natural sping that surfaces inside the actual structure. Ingomar built his castle around it. It flows out from under a portion of the castle wall before flowing down the hillside.

Big City: Bogdon

It's been 2 weeks and I am back In Tuscarora. Took a cab into Bogdon from the airport. I know, that's not like me. My publisher set me up in a fantastic hotel in Bogdon's Historic District. This is where the first brick was laid, and looking at the cranes beyond these stones walls, I know many more are yet to be mortared. Well, actually no, much of the construction is glass and steel, but I routinely have failed attempts at being poetic. Why else would I end up writing travel books?

Welcome to Bogdon.

Thanks for checking out Tuscarora! I have a link to a mosaic below. The Montour University neighborhood.

tuscarorahistory2fe8.jpg

I decided to skip the library in Fenwick and instead crossed the river to Bogdon, Tuscarora's largest city. It was also the capital in the early years.The Montour University District is home to a few good libraries.

universitysb3.jpg

I took the train of course.

        Here is what I've learned thus far. Tuscarora owes it's name to the man who founded her, Tuscaros. Born in what is now modern day Atravia, Tuscaros grew up listening to stories around the fire at night. The subject of many of those stories was the same here as it was across the world. There was one man who enslaved mankind in perpetual fear. Ingomar circled the globe in an unending cycle, leaving behind only peril. Looking forward only to more. 

      

        When Tuscaros was 7 years old, he was eye to eye with the plaque of mankind himself. The closest thing this world has ever known of the Devil.  It had been about 15 years since the last pass of Ingomar. Brutality was the only lesson learned that day. Tuscaros saw his family and countless others slaughtered at the hand of Ingomar and his army. He swore revenge.

        Tuscaros grew to an adept young man. A warrior of unequaled potential. He was able to gain the attention of Ingomar himself and became a member of his crew.

tempranine1ze2.jpg

        The Tempranine was the most feared ship of the seas. This was Ingomar's vessel. He led his crew around the world, and they always took more than they needed. Tuscaros eventually learned of the magnificent castle Ingomar had constructed over the years. Slaves had been building it for the last 40 years, and Ingomar was ready to retire, surrounded by the wealth of the world. A brutal death surely awaited the castle's workers, and it was certainly possible that much of the crew would be disposed of as well. No one could leave knowing the location of Ingomar, but surely he didn't intend to retire alone. 

        Tuscaros waited. Closer he crept. While the Tempranine rose and fell in a seemingly endless swell of waves, he realized his attack. The sea was spraying. Salt water eyes are no worry to a sailor. It was belived by many that Ingomar could sail the Tempranine by will alone. He stood at the bow. As Tuscaros swung in from behind, he knew Ingomar would detect him, but he was positive it would not be in time. He turned to meet his executioner. They found themselves eye to eye. Just as they had been before. When you stare the Devil down, he never takes his eyes off you.

        As for the crew, well lets just say that none of those men would have ever challenged Ingomar. How would they be able to do so for his killer? They did not. The land Ingomar chose to settle down within was for the most part undiscovered, as far as the rest of the world was concerned. It was beautiful. It was green. It was unscorched by Ingomar's flame.

It belonged to the world. 

        Many made the trip to Tuscarora. There were resources enough for all. It had belonged to them before and finally returned to them. Tuscaros was worshiped as a savior by many. 

        Until recently Tuscarora's primary faith was Muirism, the idea that Tuscaros was led by a divine being to rid the world of evil. The arrival of immigrants recently has driven the national percentage of the faith down. Followers are rarely found outside the country.

       Ingomar's castle was beyond the bay. Beyond the cranberry bogs of what is now a metropolis. Nestled in the foothills of the aptly named Olive Mountains. Initially a settlement popped up on a tiny island in Berlinger Bay. This was the true starting point of Tuscarora. 

westernbogdonzv7.jpg

easternsidebogdonvz6.jpg

facadebogdonzm2.jpg

       There are three rivers flowing into the bay. Two of them here in Bogdon. The Muirchect from the north. The Dunbar from the east. The Raven River flows from the east as well, and it's banks lie in the cities of Julrich, Fenwick, and Orator. It then turns north just before spilling into the Bay near Southdock. I cannot wait to explore, but that must wait until my next trip as I return home tomorrow. Here are some old representations of the land.

approachbogdonui6.jpg

bendbogdonnf6.jpg

         Bogdon was originally declared the capital. But when people came in their masses it was decided to preserve the space in the city for residential and commercial growth. A proper capital was laid out in Delano, making a lovely foreground to the city goverened by it.

A flag depicting the soul of Ingomar, with his heart of black, being cast into Hell was chosen.

flag2sj9.jpg

A lovely beginning to a great nation. As I take a final look at Bogdon, I smile. I am eager to return home for a bit, but am excited to come back here.

bogdonheadqurters1bs0.jpg

I also figured I'd treat you to a region pic. So lets step outside the story for a minute. It's not all built yet, but for the sake of the story, some things should be there already, I will get to areas of high construction eventually, but our friend here is exploring Tuscarora slowly. I think I can make this cj last awhile. So here is what is done for now...

Import Export: Southdock

southdockoverview1dg0.jpg

I have always adored the smell of seawater. Although I am not all that fond of seafood. Well, at least I never used to be. But today I had THE BEST fish sandwich in Southdock. Down on Dock Street on the East Side, I found a great little seafood shack. This part of town looks a lot like the parts of Fenwick I toured recently... but things are a bit different here. Everyone is moving much faster. Day or night, this part of Tuscarora is absolutley buzzing! I am falling in love with this place.

That sandwhich was so good I went back for another once the sun was down. I sat on a bench on Dock Street and did a bit of people watching. The smells, the sounds, and my God the sights!

Southdock is where all the best that Tuscarora has to offer is shipped off to the rest of the world... so they say. But after today I know that all the best can never be taken away from this land. It's all right here and it is here to stay. 

Tomorrow I am going to coup myslf up in the library from open to close. I have some research to do. Good night!

 Fenwick is so beautiful at night. The inner city area around my hotel is buzzing yet with a calm steadiness. This city is speaking to me, but I long for the ability to genuinely understand Fenwick. Tomorrow I was going to backtrack into Orator, as I passed through on my first day. Instead, I think I'll hoof it around Fenwick and see what there is to see. Maybe I can get a feel for what this city and this country are all about.

I have certainly seen Fenwick's prosperous side

The neighborhoods of Bevestow and Olney are home to blocks of rowhomes and dirty street corners. This general area has been bulit upon and rebuilt upon since settlement began. This is the land between Fenwick's city center and the Dunbar River. Beyond that are the towers of downtown Bogdon. In this part of town, people are forced to do more with less. As with much of the area surrounding the factories and piers of Southdock. 

Here in Fenwick there is still a strong work force in various production and trade fields. Tuscarora Laborer Union is based in Fenwick. A furniture trade is predominant within in the city's borders. Fenwick furniture is highly regarded the world over and therefore is one of Tuscarora's chief exports.

I look forward to seeing the busy dockland.

Capital City: Delano

sunkenairportjt0.jpg

Wow! What a trip! I am exhausted. And that's just from fighting my way through Bogdon International Airport. It is extremely overcrowded. I can see why they are building a new airport on the other side of Berlinger Bay. After I deboarded and cleared customs, I hopped a train into Fenwick. Bogdon International is actually located in the city of Mineola (Min-ee-oh-la) and I passed through the tiny city of Orator on the way. My hotel is on the same sqaure as the train station here in Fenwick. I am so worn out I didn't even catch the same of the station. I really need to hit the sack. Tomorrow I will be touring Tuscaror

Well I must have been pretty tired last night. I fell asleep mid-sentence! I was almost done too! Anyway, I'm going to check out Tuscarora's capital city, Delano today. I can't wait to get out there on the streets!

Lurkin Circle provides a fine greeting to those traveling into Delano from Bogdon...

As does the avenue of course.

 The National Gallery has a lovely collection of boulders on the lawn. Locals can often be found dangling and grappling their way along in the day.

It is certainly a sight to see! Another long day for me, so that's all for now!

Opportunity Knocking

Hello, all! After one year of Tuscarora, I am finally bringing my inaugural cj to the new section. I'm rarely seen in this particular part of ST, but I hope to change that. Please enjoy my country!

I am delighted to write that my publisher has agreed to sponsor several trips to Tuscarora. The nation is no doubt experiencing a tremendous amount of growth from both outward and in. The already cosmopolitan nation is taking on its first population spike since the land was originally settled several hundred years ago. The time has come for a new set of historical and educational volumes to be written about the “green bear” as the country is known. Ironically, that is the only fact I am privy to about Tuscarora, other than the beautiful weather its residents are accompanied by nearly year round. Even still, I am ecstatic about my future travels. I did manage to unearth an old post card I was sent from my uncle years ago. It depicts the first settlement in Bogdon, Tuscarora’s largest city. He was too busy to write anything on it… or too drunk to attempt to I suppose. It’s still a fine bit of nostalgia none the less.

Of course I will be keeping a journal of my visit(s). I leave June 1st for an initial two week trip. I don’t know where to at first, well at least not yet, but it will no doubt be a great experience. I’m already packing my suitcase!


            Tomorrow is the big day. I leave for Fenwick in the morning. I am actually familiar with one of Fenwick’s soccer teams, Fenwick United, of which my brother is a fan. I will be staying at the historic Fenwick Town Hotel on

Saint Gogarty Square
. I will be right in the heart of Fenwick, which I have been reading up on with the outdated books I bought a few weeks ago. I am eager to learn more and document my discoveries. Here is a picture of the famed accommodations, as well as some of the square and surrounding area.

I also came across the coat of arms and flag.

For now I must get some sleep. Tomorrow I am Tuscarora bound!
