PlyPlay665 - Thank you very much for checking the Empire out! I hope its worth the wait!
Keep-Up - Thanks a lot! I'll definately look into the Alliance, sounds cool.
Welcome back to the Central Quadrant. This time we Visit Kennigsjor Bay, a large city built along the beautiful shores and escartment of Kennigsjor Bay.
Kenningsjor was settled long before the Island but was peacefully integrated into the Empire at its creation. It started out as a fishing village but has grown into a modern city since. In fact there is not a single fish buissness nor harbor left in Kennigsjor. Signifigant events include the highways built in 1907, part of the first highway in the Empire, the bay ring or the IH-1. In the 1920's the cities population tripled due to large Imperial settlement projects aimed at correcting the disspraportionate population size of the Capitol to newly conquered cities. This influx of people resulted in a very mixed culture and allowed the Empire to stabilize itself once again. In 1928, the city became home to a baseball team, soccer team, cycling team, and a year later, the only racetrack in the Capitol District. The city has always struggled for fianancial investments in the city despite its central location, and attarctive parks and shoreline. The city hasn't always had the most enticing taxes for large cooperations and the rich. The city is however home to many small buisnesses, most of which have downtown offices.
Downtown. Sorry about the repition, my next downtown is nothing like this. Anyway, you can see the IH-20 run through the downtown and a major rail spur which runs along a ditch and tunnel through the area. We also have the famed Jamison Park, named after the Jamison Insurance group, the only large coperation in the city, which funded the project and owns the large tower nearby.
Here is the major Bay crossing connecting the Capitol with Eastern Quadrant. It saves 45 minutes, rather than going around the bay. Also, the train station is used by many in the eastern part of the city. They park theyre car for free and take the train in instead of fighting for a twenty simolineon parking spot downtown.
The communtiy near the crossing is well forested to make up for the traffic noise.
NW downtown and IH- 2 Ring. Notice the small pond near the top right. It is the crater left by the largest terrorist attack in the Capitol Districts history in 1921. A refugee in one of the new Imperial apartments blew himself up at the grand opening killing the mayor at the time as well as 136 others. The crater was left as a reminder and eroded into a quaint pond.
Slightly farther West.
The river mouth and the end of the small IH-102
Windmill intersection and the classy Proud Point neighbourhood.
The N. village coastal communtiy, all begun in the 1920's has been greatly redeveloped.
N. Village Avenue slips under the main rail line to the capitol.
Until next time, thanks for visiting the Empire!
Next time we take a closer look at the sites around the Bay while I develop the subburbs and farms.
