The History of December Bay:

December 6th, 1789, a ship caught in a storm discoveres the lush bay and shelters in it, yet dosen't dock in it's shores. Instead, the expedition returned to it's home port and told the tale about their journey. Almost a century passes, with no new visitors to the bay...

Late 1870's. Population is rising. Western world expanded and conquered many areas. With new land to exploit, people are trying to find new places to colonize in. On top of all, the western culture has shifted from having one convention (or concensus) to many: Some have capialist ideals, some dream of a socialist commune.

Then came "Gateway to Hope" - An ambitious plan by a group of dreamers to colonize December Bay after thw winter ends.

"Gateway to Hope" was orgainized by a group of four men: Barnett, Solomon, Goodman and Katz. Their ambitious plan to colonize that frontier caught the

attention of an important businessman, the Baron of Edmund. He promised to help them, and support the goal to bring people to the region.

In the spring of 1878, the group docked at the northern beach of the bay, at the estuary of a great river.

About 50 meters from the shore, they erected a small camp. This is the start of brand new future for the region...

I've always loved the city journals where you go through time periods, not just starting out in a Megalopolis and showcasing it, it gives it I nice, feel and keeps me wanting to know how they advance next. If only I had the patience to do it myself. :|

Great history, great historical photos, and great SC4 images. It reminds me a lot of New SorGun - and I see you received a comment from its author, SimCoug - you must be on the right track.
