Utmärkt

The vast interior of Harar remains largely undeveloped and populated with feline traditionalists. But, anyone who knows felines knows that seafood is an ever popular dish. The Bureau of Feline Affairs, which manages Harar’s foreign affairs and defense, also provides for feline services nationwide. In addition to medical facilities and defense outposts, the BFA has integrated Harar into a comprehensive ferry system with Schulmania. Fully functional Maxis-based ferries link every coastal tile in both countries. At one such ferry stop, the small village of Utmärkt developed. Located midway along the eastern shore of Huddleston Bay, Utmärkt consists of a small village serving mainly as a marketplace for freshly caught seafood. Felines from the interior come here to trade for fish and receive services from BFA agencies. Mayor Bo Cephus will show us around today, market day, when our non-domiciled friends in the hinterland descend upon the site for fish.

The Bureau of Feline Affairs offers a vet clinic for those coming in to town. This is one of the services the BFA provides in its role as protector of Harar.

Captain Morgan is one of the best fishermen in the area… and he also makes a lovely sushi-infused rum

Front Street has drawn a crowd anticipating the return of the fishing fleet with succulent new tasties aboard

As usual, the stinkier the fish, the happier the feline…

The mayor lives and works in space above his tavern, the Örebro Slott

At a prominent spot by the ferry terminal, the Three Crowns Inn is the only guest house in the village. It is usually booked solid on market days

With all the umlauts, I'll bet that all their amps go up to 11.

Here's my guess: they met some indigenous, sea-faring Viking felines and went native to a certain extent, and this is going to seriously amp up Schulminion Naval power and pillaging ability.

[img]http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z141/Schulmanator/pawprint-small.jpg[/img] [b]riiga [/b]You got it! It is a Swedish themed fishing village? Now, you might wonder why…. Well, one because Sweden is cool (literally and figuratively) but also because I had these guys as I was writing the entry:

[b][font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif][color=#FF0000][i]FYI, this is the 20th Harar update. So, we will have special posting awards for Harar coming up next. I figure every 20 posts is a good increment… so be looking for it soon. There are different award levels than Schulmania since this is smaller and less frequently updated and read.[/i][/color][/font][/b]
