This is the capital city, Burg die auf Bucht, of the Schwegau, in the Küssellreich. The Gau is dominated by the major island of Tindel and at its western edge, facing the Westmeer, lies the fort. The Kingdom was for a long time a mainly agricultural land; built on the tripple traditions of Gott, König, und Herr (God, King, and Gentry) as the King had actively staved of the encroachment of modernity (and the social upheavals that would come with it). However, upon the death of the old King August II and the succession of his young nephew August III, the Schwegau, which was the most underdeveloped of the all the Gau, was slated to become a beacon of a newly-modern Kingdom. This experiment would need a capital city to befitting its newfound importance. And, with the enthusiastic support of the King and the financial support of the Central Government, the Burd die auf Bucht was built atop the ruins of the old medieval fortress. Designed by Dr. Josef Schleckt, a Gau assembly building was erected, and the other necessities of a government were built around it. The denizens of the Burg live in single-family homes in the suburbs surrounding the old city walls. Many commute into work at one of the many bureaucratic offices surrounding the Central Mall, or commute in from the surrounding small towns and villages along the rails that terminates at the König August II Station. On Fridays and Saturdays (not on Sundays as that would be frowned upon by the religiously-minded), many would take the train, walk the trails, or park near the grounds to attend the local fußball match in hopes of witnessing a victory. The addition of a professional football team to the Schwegau was welcomed with more fanfare than even the new assembly building! In accordance with the wishes of the King, the city holds the benefits of a state-of-the-art opera house and library which supply education, culture, and sophistication worthy of a Gau capital. In keeping with its tradition, a new (but purposely Gothic-looking) National Cathedral was built for the good people of the capital to attend. On Sundays and holidays the religious would surge out of the rail station and bound up the Heiligestraße to have their souls saved. After hearing the sermons preached, many denizens would leave the Cathedral grounds and walk the trails that circumnavigate the city along the old city walls, talking away the morning or stopping to watch their children play on the frequent playgrounds of the Castle Walk. Then, it is time for the good denizens of the Burg to find their ways home and prepare to do it all over again at the start of the next week.
