The Founding of Oceanside

Sign in to follow this  


Alicia Gilhona arrived in what is now Oceanside on June 4th. The land was rugged, and she arrived, solo, with just a caravan, supplies to build a windmill, a tractor, and enough seeds to begin a small farm.


She chose a location near the ocean, on the natural jetty. She built a small home, a farm house, and a small store. Shortly after she moved in, more people began to move to Oceanside, and within a few years, Oceanside was officially incorporated as a Territory Township of the United Tegian Republic.


The windmill was able to support the small settlement. New Seattle was soon settled further South, followed by Fullerton to the North. As the populations grew, the territory was reincorporated as a the State of Gilhona, in honor of the first settler. Furthermore, as more infrastructure was built, the Tegian Republic reorganized the region of Gilhona, into a Metropolitan Region, and after much debate, it became the New Seattle Metropolitan Region.

Very nice work so far, I like the water texture that you use for this city, it makes the area look really nice! Looks like the area is conducive to nice development too so I can't wait to see what comes of this. Great work. :thumb:
