The Wirdleplex: Salembourg

The island fortress of Salembourg, Schulmania’s Corregidor, guards not only the mouth of the strategically vital Wirdleonia River but also Schulmania’s first prisoners of war. Locked away in the tower, the prisoners are gradually giving away vital information for our military. If this information proves accurate, we may finally be able to develop a winning strategy to remove the pestilential invaders.


The key to winning the war might just be right here


This is the most secure place in the nation


There’s no easy way out if you are an escaping prisoner


But life is good on this military island, as evidenced by this fine example of officer quarters


One does not get the feeling of being trapped behind these sturdy stone walls


Especially with easy connections to the mainland from the ferry terminal, a cargo port and of course the naval bases


The enlisted barracks are full of sailors, soldiers and their families


Kittens think it’s funny to lean out the window and wave to a parent patrolling the wall just behind their home. Occasionally they throw paper airplanes in hope of reaching the wall from their window. So far, no one has made it.


The massive fort dominates the eastern end of the island…


…but the western end is lower density and mixed use. Here, Academy Circle leads to entrances for the various ports


Keeping such a massive installation fully provisioned requires a complex and secure logistics operation


A dedicated cargo port provides for the needs of the island


Of course other dedicated maritime facilities provide for other needs


In addition to the centerpiece fortress, we have many facilities in Salembourg


There is ample commerce for the resident population


And a lovely seaside chapel with an immaculate park


In an unusual step, Leech Labs has opened its first non-covert facility in Schulmania. Standing in sharp contrast to its surroundings, this facility is a joint venture of Leech Labs, the Office of Military Technology and the Schulmania Institute of Technology. Let’s hope they invent something to help us win the war!

In closing, here are some wider views of the island and its facilities.

Serene and beautiful!

Just one question, what methods does Schulmania use to squeeze out intel from POWs?

I imagine placing homemade Schulmanian cuisine just out of reach of the jail cell is torture enough :P

Very nice, looks beautiful.

I am curious... how much of your land is functional? I never see cars...

I agree - in typical Schulmania style, very beautiful. There are very few roads in the nation and its protectorates, if I recall correctly. There is the "SSS" or Schulmania secret subway that keeps things moving.

[b]10000000000000000[/b] Actually, we use positive reinforcement. If they give us info, then there will be purring. Who could resist purring??

[b]MarkusJ[/b] It is all functional. You don’t see cars because as a rule, cats do not like cars. They take folks to the dreaded v-e-t office and such. I change the graphics settings to minimize cars and often will blot them out when photo editing if they remain.

[b]Benedict[/b] You are correct. Secret and not so secret subways abound!

[b]NMUSpidey[/b] What can I say? Even in wartime we are classy! :D

[b]USFighter15[/b] HA! Good luck, Buggs!

[b]Lloyd0728[/b] Welcome to Schulmania! The fortress itself is a retexturing of the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec.

[b]Militant Radical[/b] Thanks! Glad you like it!

[b]Emperordaniel[/b] I like it. Wish I had one on my street… might protect the front yard from being eaten by roving bands of deer!
