Endersby Returns

Sorry guys, I've been a little busy, as I've been moving house and I have bought a new computer, meaning I will have to reinstall all my old plugins, so I hope to return to entries in about September!

-Hahei (sorry, no pics)

City of Hastings

Hi everyone! Today I'm feeling far to lazy to do a proper update, but I do have a tirelessly photoshopped picture!

Somewhere in what we call the US state of Maine...

Hi everyone! Today, I just wanted to take some time to reflect on how I've changed as a CJer. At first I was lousy, spraying whatever I could find on my terrain, plopping down a few buildings, taking a snapshot and putting it on my CJ. That was my first CJ, the United Kingdoms of Praqcuis which wasn't exactly a success. After a bit of a break from Simcity, I came back, slowly but surely getting better. I wanted to thank three people today, they were the ones that drove me to success.

Coming third is: Sursprule14

Every week, I went to his win column to see the incredible CJ's he featured. I was inspired by these, and when I first got into the CJ, I was tearfully happy. I had achieved a SimCity dream.

Coming second is: NMUSpidey

Spidey commented on almost every CJ entry I've ever done, giving me advice and encouragement along the way. He has helped me become the CJer I am today.

And, coming first, is (drumroll please) Ggamgus

His advice and kind words helped me when I was an early CJer, from telling me to turn off the grid to showing me how to upload pictures. Ggamgus truly deserves an award for the way he encourages beginner CJers and keeps them going to the Simtropolis citizens they are today. Thank you.

Now, for your viewing pleasure:

Arrival

To everyone who commented, a big thanks!

Entry Time!

The boy drove down the dirt path, the sheep gazing at him as he drove. He was tired. The inn he had stayed at was not the most comfortable, and anyway, why sleep when there were card games downstairs? He continued to drive through the towns outskirts:

About 15 minutes past, and then he pulled into a small, craggy road, which soon, however, turned into a stately driveway, although littered with sheep. He came to a grand mansion, and was greeted by a slightly smug looking butler: "Good morning, sir. Welcome to the manor of Lady Charlotte Thompson".

Journey's End

Still on the train...

The young man watched as the blue sky became a pink- cyan, and wispy clouds filled the atmosphere. He gazed out of his window as more farms and houses appeared. He then fell asleep.

When he awoke, he was in the midst of much hustle and bustle. People grabbed their suitcases and belongings, and stepped off the train. He realized where he was...

Trains

On a steam train leaving Scotland...:

amazing54.png

It was a warm summer day leaving Edinburgh, though there was a chill in the air, reminding the people that autumn would be here soon. A young man sat, quietly admiring the scenery as it changed from rocky moors to meadows to farmland. A butler came and handed to him a menu. He glanced at it, and ordered some lobster. He watched the plume of smoke disappear into the distance as he sipped quietly from his glass. He was about to see his cousin and great-aunt in Oxford, whom he hadn't seen for quite some time. He glanced outside, muttered some incomprehensible phrase, and returned to his book.

The Titanic

I am sorry, I will not be able to respond to comments today.

Out at sea:

titanicgo.png

One night a storm struck:

thestorm.png

Though for the most part it was happy sailing:

But Then.....:

nightf.png

The Titanic gently cuts through the calm and peaceful waters. The ship's lights are turned off so everyone can admire the beautiful ocean. But the captain failed to notice a large iceberg. It scraped into the side of the ship, allowing thousands of gallons of water into the ship.The lights went on, people panicked and within hours, the ship began to sink. The next picture will show the destruction.

Never again should we let a disaster like this happen...

Welcome to my new CJ Endersby. It is set in a parallel history around the First World War. I have been very much inspired by the CJ Endora on SC4devotion and the Leviathan trilogy of books. Some entries will show cities, battles and events while others will show a cast of characters similar to The Sensational Six.They will be introduced in the next update.

IMPORTANT CITIES

roundededge.jpg

NEW YORK

NY, USA is a huge port city on the

East Coast of America. It sells anything from

cars to mechanical walkers. The city

is currently planning on building a

giant airship landing port, the

largest on Earth.

roundededge2.jpg

ISTANBUL

The city's importance mainly rests on the

location of the city itself. Britain and Russia's

maritime trade is checked at the city's borders.

Industry, markets and mosques abound in this metropolis.

PARIS

Paris is a city noted not only of it's power, but

the city's beauty. Hot air balloon rides and boating

down the Seine is popular for both tourists and

residents alike.

MOSCOW

The industry of Moscow is not

matched by any other city.

The sky is rarely seen, darkened by

the likes of smog and airships.

ecolondon.jpg

London, also known as the City of

Darwin, is mainly famous for it's

amazing amount of animals and

plants sharing the city with people.

Genetic engineering also abounds in

this jungle of trees and buildings.
