Arquennes - Introduction



Hi everyone!

It seems that almost a year has passed since the last update. As usual, I've been losing interest for the game then came back to it and started working on different projects without finishing them. And you all know that I'm quite slow... The play time counter from Steam is for instance quite depressing for me to see  :D

It's time for me to introduce Arquennes, the city that will interest us in the next updates. The idea, as you may have seen, was to create some kind of regional middle town located on its hill next to the canal and trying to make it as organic as possible.



Far from Arinsian biggest cities, Arquennes is located at the rural heart of the country. Despite its size, the city had for a long time a lot of power, as the capital of an episcopal principality. From that time, only remains imposing landmarks and a certain kind of parochialism in its citizens' mind. After being annexed by Arinsia in 1795, the city indeed lost its importance and the Church ceased to rule the city. A bit later, the canal between Kookart and Olsènes was built, transforming the meadows landscape below the city into an industrial one. Today, despite the decline of the industry, the city remains a dynamic place that attracts tourists and amateurs of nature.

1. Episcopal city means churches...


2. 'La ferme du Bailli', a specific update will be dedicated to that place


3. Feluy, one of the 5 other villages that are part of Arquennes municipality. Same, a specific update for that one  ;)


4. Arquennes itself, its cathedral and episcopal palace


I hope you liked those pictures. The next ones are coming soon:thumb:

That first picture is just stunning - I'd go as far to say your best ever - it just looks so natural and organic. The other three are just your average Feyss: beautiful.
