Return To Athanos
Welcome back guys, sorry about the prolonged absence of my updates, but I've been quite busy and also I had to completely rebuild Athanos after an unfortunate save during a period of time when the water and power was off, so... that caused a very.... dilapidated city.
But DO NOT FEAR! I've rebuilt a newer, and better Athanos! So, here we go.
First, I will show you the location of Posillipo, and then Athanos.
On this map, you can see Posillipo on the continent of Althena, it is highlighted in Orange. This map was made by _marsh_ and is home to USNW's member nations. Click for full size.
This is the location of Athanos with in Posillipo. Click for full size.
Now, I'll hand you over to your guide.
Bonjour, mesdames et messieurs. I'm Châtele, and I'll be your guide today, and we will be boarding the helicopter momentarily, but first I'd like to thank you for coming on this tour with me, and I hope you enjoy it.
Looks like the pilot's ready, why don't we go a ahead and board, and get started with our tour.
Alright, we're off. We'll start off with the government centers, first is the Capitol building. This building was built in the early 18th century, as part of the capital project. This project was started by King Charles V.

Now, for the actual update, it's not much just three pictures, and they're kind of random, I had a bad problem with sc4 this week, I had planned on doing an update on Athanos, but it got totally messed up because I accidentally hit save and the city was all delapitated because the water and power got shut off and I didn't notice, if anyone has any idea if there's a way to save it, please let me know.
I'll just let the pictures talk, that alright with y'all?

This is a picture from the 1948, Great Adonian War, when Athanos was bombed by neighboring Kyriakos.
Thanks for viewing, and PLEASE comment!
Well, welcome back everybody, followers, newcomers, friends.
We're back in Nanjing today, but we'll be taking a tour of the Southside and Tanjing Districts.
Tanjing is mainly a low-income neighborhood, but there are also some medium and high-wealth condos and such here as well. The low-income houses are so smooshed together, some of the houses press against each other. It's a rainy day today!
Nanjing is known not only as a major business and cultural center, but it's also known as the fishing capital of the world, because the city is home to over 400 major fishing companies and also a mass amount of people work as fishers by their self.
As an east asian type country, Astey and Nanjing are susceptible to typhoons also known as cyclones or hurricanes and also kamikaze.
The season lasts for months, in unlucky years there is multiple major typhoons.
But, always remember there is a bright tomorrow, and there's always time to party!
Thank you for viewing, I encourage you to comment, and also rate! Tell your friends too!

Welcome back to Nanjing, today I'm just going to give a short commentary and I won't be talking much because I think pictures are worth a thousand words. Remember right click >> view image for full reso!
We'll start of with a picture of Tan Jiang Island and the North Side.
Jinan Stadium, home to champions!
The Densest part of the city, in the North Side.
A little mosaic! Well, actually it's 10,000 px.
Last, but definitely not least, the Nanjing Tourism Corporation snapped this pic on one of the more lively nights in the city.
So, how was that? Please tell me below and offer some criticism too, anything's welcome! Rate, tell your friends!
Welcome Followers, Newcomers, and Critics!
Nanjing is the Capital of the Sister-Kingdom of Posillipo, which is called Astey. Together, The Kingdom of Posillipo, The Kingdom of Astey, The Principality of Carpathia, the Principality of Maren, and the Principality of Tierre make up the United Imperial Kingdom of Posillipo and Astey. Astey is located here:
We'll start of with a tour of Nanjing and go more in depth in a coming update. This is Tan Jiang Island, home to the Union Stadium and some major corporate high rises.
This is Union Stadium, home to the Astey Warriors and also home to the Nanjing Concert Series, where celebrities from all over the world come every weekend to perform for the city. As you can tell, the stadium and parking lot are worth a lot because of where they are!
Now to the North side, home to some of the tallest buildings in the world, as well as the tallest buildings in the kingdom and united kingdom.
A little over view for you all, Nanjing is home to over 10 million people in the city limits and over 20 million in the metro, it's not only the largest city in the kingdoms but it's also one of the largest in the world.
Now, for the last pic of the day, a night shot, during the Nanjing Independence Day Celebration!
Thanks for view today guys! I hope you enjoyed it, I know I enjoyed making it!

Today I won't be doing a big update but I am going to post a mosaic!
Please comment, rate, and tell your friends!
Edit: I changed the link to the bigger mosaic, the 10,000px ones.
Athanos is the capital city of the Kingdom of Posillipo, as well as the capital city of the United Kingdom of Posillipo and Astey. It is situated on the Bay of Athanos, where Karpathos formerly sat (look back to maps). Originally only home to a small town with the original castle and few houses, Athanos is has grown to be a world leading city, as well as the largest city in the Kingdom of Posillipo. Today we'll take a little travel through Athanos.
We'll start off with a mosaic taken at during the day, it's a little stormy in this picture but hopefully it'll clear away soon.
(click and zoom in)

Great, it's starting to clear up, but sadly it's starting to get dark. As capital of Posillipo, Athanos is home to the Royal Palace of the Vasilisa, or King/Queen (currently queen), and the legislative buildings:
It's also home to the department buildings, some of them shown here as it really starts to darken.
Aw, the rain and fog are starting to come back, that's Posilliponian weather for you. We see a picture you might remember from the scrapped "City of Karpathos", it's the Saint Ettiene's Basilica.
Great! The rain's gone now and there's only a little fog left, we can see downtown Athanos great now! What a picturesque city Athanos is.
Now that we made it through the night we can look at the Dientene District. This is one of Athanos's older districts that's starting to get revamped with newer buildings. What a pretty day is is.
This is one of the newer additions to Athanos, the "Port Athanos." It was built in the last few years to replace an older, smaller port that was there. A lot of land was reclaimed and new port equipment was built, as well as the new bridge. Off to the right are some ships of the Posilliponian Navy running routine patrols.
I'll leave you with a nice night picture of the port, with the bridge all lit up, it's actually a nice little picture.
Thank you guys (and girls) for viewing, please leave me some comments below *points down* and rate up there *points up*.
Hello devotees, and new comers! I have brought myself to publish a new entry in my journal today. I urge you not to just look at the pictures, but also read the commentary, as well.
As you all know, I was in the Confederacy of Free Regions, a City Journal Union but, we had some problems, nothing too major, and we switched names. We also had to return the planet maps and such we were using of New Gaea (See Update 17) because the person who did that left. So, we have created a new and slightly more realistic planet that is very similar to New Gaea in the way it's run. We call it Adonia. Adonia is populated with USNW nations but also, NPC (Non Player Controlled) Countries so we aren't all alone with unpopulated land. So, I think that (sort of) explains it, don't you think? So, now I can get into some more stuff. I want to show some new maps.
1. A map of the planet of Adonia. Beware, it's about... 10000 pixels so it will take a while to load so I'm not going to actually post the image. It's very worth it so I really want you to click it. (made by _marsh_)
2. A satellite map of the continent of Estia, (this is as far as we've gotten with this) Also big so click it too. (made by _marsh_)
3. A map of Posillipo's cities
4. A map of Posillipo's cities, plus Posillipo's highway network.
5. A map of Posillipo's cities, plus Posillipo's HSR and Passenger Rail.
Okay, enough with maps. Now for the actual update.
Athanos is the current capital of the Kingdom of Posillipo and the United Kingdom of Posillipo and Astey. Astey is the sister kingdom of Posillipo, they are united and both have kings. The Vasilisa(Vasilisa means royalty, king, or queen in greek) of Posillipo and the King/Queen of Astey, then above those two is the High King/Queen of The United Kingdom, who is currently Charles Dragomir, so I'll just say High King from now on. The High King has absolute authority over both nations, and becomes emperor when the nations go to war. The two Kings/Queens mostly take care of their relevant countries, though, and the High King tends to not interfere too much because of the honor code that the Kingdoms maintains. The Senate and Assembly of Representative Handle a lot too, the authorize spending and must agree with the King/Queen on their actions before they're taken, that does not apply to the High King though. The Senate and Assembly may take the King out of power, though, if they think he is ruling improperly. The Vasilisa and the King/Queen of Astey are hereditary offices, and every four reigns/generations the line switches from one of the royal families of the nations, relatively*, which I will list later. The High King is elected to life time terms and he/she is selected from one of the royal families, both countries are eligable to nominate two candidates from their groups, and then the Senate elects the next High King.
*Each kingdom has their own group of royal families.
That's all for now, I'm going to start a story to go alogn with my picture from now on so I'm getting that together and maybe we can see a chapter tomorrow?
Please Rate and Comment!! I love comments and will reply individually, so please comment.
Also, this wasn't meant to be a big update just sort of an informer, a big one is coming tomorrow, hopefully.
This is my second update on Tierre. Tierre is the capital and largest city of the Commonwealth of Carpathia. Carpathia is a chain of islands northwest of Posillipo. Tierre has a population of 543,234, and has a fairly modern downtown after the government gave the city a large amount of money to redo their downtown for tourism purposes. The city serves as one of the two main tourist spots for most Posilliponians, the other being the Maren Islands. I'm talking too much, let's get to the update.

A good picture with all the reefs surrounding the island and the city(which is on a bigger island)
East Tierre Beach
Lake Claire with the surrounding appartments.
North Tierre Beach
South Tierre Beach with Riechstan Falls in the picture aswell
Today, I'm going to be showing a new little beach town called Tierre. Tierre is a town located in the Commonwealth of Carpathia, a dependent territory of Posillipo and a member nation of the United Kingdom of Posillipo. Carpathia is located just south of the equator and has a predominantly tropical climate, even though the architecture is substantially more Mediterranean than you'd normally find in this area because the Posilliponians discovered the islands before they were populated by any other people, so they built with their type of architecture. Tierre is one of the most popular tourist destinations for the Posilliponians, and it is visited by an estimated 2 million a year. The island I will be showing is not the only part of Tierre.

Today we'll be going on a little information highway into Posillipo. I'm going to try to explain some of this stuff about COFR's "New Gaea." Basically, it's a replacement for earth specifically for the need of more realistic role play, I realize some of you are like "How is a 'new' Earth realistic?" and to that I answer with this.. Most CJ unions require you to take up non important land or extremely small amounts of land on Earth to keep it realistic, but in COFR we realized that a bunch of random islands and taking tiny and big chuncks of land from real countries isn't realistic, also most people hate having tiny chunks of unwanted land... I mean they're unwanted for a reason right? So, at COFR we developed "New Gaea" so we can have normal sized countries and more realistic role play.
We developed high definition maps and then chose our land (realistically sized land) and set up our countries, now we still allow role play with "Non Gaean" nations like normal, just like you where on Earth, no tacky Sci-fi interspace travel and such, it just kinda happens. We've developed extremely realistic satellite composite images of "New Gaea" with the help of our extremely talented Marsh, these maps can be seen below! Currently we are looking for more countries to fill up our empty space, so if you'd like to join please contact me in a message on here, add me on skype "simfreak1998", or visit our site: http://www.cofr.darkbb.com/ and contact one of our government officials and they can help!
So, now to the dynamics of Posillipo. Posillipo is a partial monarchy, with two assemblies, the Senate and the House of Consuls. The Vasílissa, or Queen(or King in times of a male ruler), is the head of government and head of state of Posillipo. While the Vasílissa hold's most power over the government, the Senate and House of Consuls hold some important jobs. The official title of Posillipo is the "United Kingdom of Posillipo". The nation consists of 23 "Counties" which are the equivalent of a State or Province and 5 Commonwealths. Posillipo currently has a population of 250 Million people.
Now time for maps!
First up, a map of New Gaea showing all the nations and their land claims. Make sure you click for full size.
That map has one problem, the Joli Islands have been purchased by Posillipo and are now called the Marin Islands.
Next, A more detailed map with ocean/continent/nation names. Click for full size. Again, this second map has the same map as the one above.
Now, who wants to see a cool map with just Posillipo on it? I do! Click for full size.
Now, a map of how mainland of Posillipo, or the actual Kingdom of Posillipo, is divided up into it's "Counties".
Next, I'll show the commonwealths of Posillipo, view the larger maps for land form reference.
Next, the AWESOME satellite map our very own Marshy put together, you may know him as the Gansbaai man? It's not completely done yet but click for full size.
Now, how bouts a city map of Posillipo on that cool sat image? Click for full size.
The flag of Posillipo is a beautiful combination of Blue and Gold and Orange.
Now, for an update on my Karpathos progress.

I have built Karpathos once before, but I neglected some.... details and it didn't turn out too great. You can see it below. (click to see full size).
Today I'll be showing you my plans for my city of Karpathos. Karpathos is the largest city in the Kingdom of Posillipo, with over 25 million people living in the metropolitan area, and around 12 million people in the city limits. Karpathos is situated on Karpathos Bay, in between two rivers with mountains surrounding the city. A (partial) region view can be seen below.
I have some plans for where I'm building what which can be seen below.
And this is my planned highway system.

Dear Valued Viewers,
I apologize for not updating lately, I have been busy with many things in my life and my cj, sadly was not one of them. This will be a good update and please rate and comment! Also, I apologize for the missing pictures, in my quest to clear space on my photobucket account, I deleted my albums which, in turn deleted all my links and made my cj unviewable. Though, I will not be replacing these pictures because that's not possible I will be posting many new awesome updates.
