Haludua 1510-1530

Sign in to follow this  


Sorry for taking so long for the latest update. Forgive me.

Haludua 1510-1530:

        The years after the war were different on both sides. The first Mertucian victory had an effect over the Mertucian People. It made them more confident, safe, and arrogant. The first defeat on Yandavara had a blow on their citizens pride. They felt humiliated and furious over the fact that they were defeated by the same people they helped escape from Italy. A person that is somewhat important to the story said "It is amazing how the mood of the citizens of a city can drop very drastically after they felt betrayed and humiliated." As I said...somewhat important.

         Yandavara was rebuilt in the following years. The building where the govener once ruled from was burned down. So they tore up the land and added a better cathedral. The only building that remained burnt down was the barracks.


The Cathedral is indeed a replica of Florence's Cathedral.

         Mertucia on the other hand started becoming quite the empire. They had celebrations for a year after the victory and the next 29 years were spent expanding the empire. In this time period, Mertucia founded two new cities: Kreigan Atoll and New Ravenna. Kreigan atoll was founded on...well an atoll. New Ravenna was founded on a rather large island somewhere eastward. Both cities grew pretty slowly though.

         Kreigan Atoll:


            New Ravenna:


While the Empire changed,the capital city only did slightly. They only added four new shops to the marketplace outside the city walls. (AWESOME ISN'T IT?)


In 1530 Rome was sacked. When the news finally reached here, they were frightened by the Barbarians and Ottomans. Both Republics rushed to increase their armies drawing attention from an unwanted nation north of this region: The Most Serene Republic of Venice. Stay tuned for more.

Like the second picture. I think the courtyard furthest to the right should be filled with garden tiles. The other two are great, especially the one with the tower.

Nice CJ, but why does every block has to be like a castle?  Try mixing it up a bit, use some German timber-frame buildings if you have to.  Personally, I think they look much better and they're functional too!

well...this CJ is Italian. I try to give it more of an Italian feel by using red a lot. Timber-frame house just don't look good here.

Agreed, since it is Italians, the textures should be more vibrant, like Brunelleschi's Bascilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, but NOT as vibrant as that, it still has to stand out. 

Are these your BATs, skirmisher? So that you can do this yourself, instead of petitioning the original creator to do a lighter toned variation?

unforunately not...but from the creative mind of Kwakelaar. It is a mixture of his city wall pack and his castle wall pack.
