Sproji: Civic Center Historic District
Sproji is a city in southwest Syldav, deep in the mountains.
Now listen up: I don't think I have ever spent so much time working on so much little space. Making all the right buildings grown where I want them to--and then making them all historic--has been a major pain. So, take a bit of time to see what all the sweat is about. I'm pretty proud of this one so far.
For generations, Sproji has been the central market place for the mountainous regions of Syldav. Much of the area is populated but farmers in small hamlets where their specific goods are best grown. Farmers and others have bought their raw goods into Sproji for sale and/or processing. Merchants take these goods to other hamlets as well as larger cities like Klov, Alov, and Muskav.

Sproji City Hall was built in 1798. It is still used as the official center of government, though most of the city's work happens downtown.
