Overview pt.1

As you can probably tell from the intro, Romascus is in dire need of help; the place is just too small to sustain its self on an economic level in this harsh economic climat. Either somethng expands, or the whole place will end up a ghost town...

Firstly, a map to show you where I'm talking about when I talk about it:


Now, before we try to sort out Romascus' many, many problems, lets look at what we're dealing in depth. We'll start with :


Reddton is the biggest settlement on the river Romascus (which isn't saying much as there are only 3), with 24,000 residents'. On the surface, Reddton looks as problem free as a city can be, with quaint subuebs, a sea view and a large industrial centre...






... but dig beneath the surface, and you'll see that Reddton is going to collapse in on herself soon if left on her own two feet for too long.

You see, Reddton was built around industry. This industry to be precise:



Pctured above is the Reddton automotive parts repair shop and supplier; also known as RAP

And as you can see from the first picture, there's a big gap full of trees; in the middle of the industrial core; that's where the Reddton Gas Company used to be before it got moved up river. That cost Reddton a lot of jobs, and being an industrial town, that's VERY bad news.

So, what did Reddton do? Turned to tourism! The only problem being that you need tourists to be a tourist attraction.

The mayor ordered the old docks used by the RGC be torn up and replaced with a pier, recreational docks and commercial buildings:



Note the distinct lack of tourists...

Either Reddton attracts tourists somehow to this rural stretch of land, or she faces fading into obscurity like many unsucessful rural tourist towns.
