Congratulations to daTSchikinhed for submitting the winning name. The voting was close, but Porthaven was the clear winner. The townsfolk celebrated the founding in the fall of 1856, and Mr. Delin spared no expense with the festivities.
More good news came to the region around the same time. A fragile truce was reached between the US government and the hostile Indian tribes. Although peace was a welcome development in New SorGun, the result of the conflict was having a devastating result on the settlement. Before the war, new pioneers were emigrating to the region almost daily.
But since fighting broke out, new arrivals are almost non-existent. In fact, many settlers are packing it in and moving on to greener pastures. For the first time, New SorGun has seen a decrease in population.
Farms outside of the relative safety of town are being abandoned due to the constant threat of new hostilities breaking out.
Materburg was fortunate to avoid any direct fighting, but the town prepared defenses all the same.
And farms around Materburg were being abandoned as well.
The lack of productive farms was causing food shortages throughout the region. The farm wagons, once overflowing with local crops were now nearly empty. The townsfolk were getting worried.
New SorGun was forced to import food in order make it through the winter, further draining capital and resources. The dock workers were kept busy as ships unloaded their goods.
Business leaders in town were getting anxious. The uncertainty was driving away customers and halting any growth. Main street felt like a ghost town.
The townsfolk voted to raise enough cash to send a delegation to Washington DC in order to lobby for a US Army instillation to be built near town. As the first fall breeze blew through town, many of the townsfolk gathered near the pier to see Mr. Denenny and Mr. T. Master off. Much was riding on the success of their journey.

And you picked the winner.
westy177: wait did you terraform the river yourself it looks epic the way it turns nice update
It's mostly the work of Drunkapple and his awesome map skills - I only tweaked it a bit.
hahei: I voted Delinwood. BTW, do the people who submitted one of the top five names get a small piece of land?
For now, only the winner will receive the 2 acres - but because of the great feedback, I will have future possibilities for land ownership.
Fox: Still an amazing looking region. I've voted!.. Thanks for letting the community be apart of your CJ.
Thanks, and thanks for participating.
NMUSpidey: Winding river is wonderful.
Thank you Spidey.
turdferguson1: Cedar Creek, the name flows a little better than the other ones.
I liked that one too - but alas, the people have spoken.
Thanks for stopping by!
