Rostbury grows, Newtville shrinks, and Reddton gets a propostition...

Crazy stories in local papers are the least of the many Romascan problems...

Newtville is showing signs of extreme abandonment and building dilipidation:


People just can't afford to run such small farms anymore. It looks like if Newtville carries on as she does, she'll be the first of the settlement to fall victim to the recession.

Reddton on the other hand is niether growing nor shrinking; the area attracts a small amount of tourists, and the industrial core that Reddton is built around still provides enough money and jobs to supply everybody with their needs'. It looks like Reddton will just about ride out the storm.

However, monopoly owner Bill Texan has recently shown interest in the area. As the big cities to the east and west grow, as does the traffic between the two cities through Romascus.Bill wants to make a propositon: he wants a massive multi-billiondollar super mall to be built on the main road that cuts through Romscus:


The red are is the proposed site

Building the mall would be free, and would attract much needed tourism to Romascus. but on the other hand, the mall would probably cause a massive surge in immigration to the area, with people looking for jobs. Does Reddton sacrafice her beauty to clear a sure route through these dark times? What do you think? (Bear in mind that the mall would look pretty awesome... just sayin' is all...)

But what bout the smallest settlement on the River, Rostbury?

Well, the mayor of Rostbury saw potential in the old scenic view spot which climbs up the slope of the Romascus Ridge:


What people want in these economic times is cheap holidays; sightseeing that doesn't cost a fortune. And what better way to exploit the regions natural beauty than to build a full scale double platform viewing area?




More shops have flocked around the base of the area. The coffers of the little burg are growing; and so is the town itself:


On top of this resounding tourist promotion sucess, industry has just begun to expand on the river for the first time in decdes. One of the two companies stationed at Rostburg saw potential in being in such close proximity to cheap labour.  The company hs expanded its factory estate (bottem of pic). And as every good mayor knows, people go where the work goes.


Many financial experts predict that this source of cheap labour could show Rostbury through the tunnel, and in to the light at the end...

I like it!

When I first started reading about the Proposition, I thought, "Highway!" but I guess not. I say build one... however, I say build one in Newtville, it might just help the place turn around. Even if you probably don't want it there. 
Or maybe Rostbury. I dunno, just build it wherever.
