County of Ersenai, County of falling blossom .


2. Geographical information

Geographical information contains a lot of information about the county. It is a real broad subject. From cities till the ecosystems will be discussed in this subject.



2.1 Social geographical information:

All information about cities, village, infrastructure and provinces belong to this subject.

2.1.1 Cities of Ersenai

The county of Ersenai counts six cities. Five of the six cities are real cities and they were founded long before 0 AD. The sixth city is a consequence of the unification and founding of Koningsberg.
The six cities are: Mersetai, Avestia, Kandirai, Vrestenai, Landeris and Omensis

The cities Mersetai, Kandirai, Vrestenai, Landeris and Omensis are the main cities of the provinces of Ersenai. In every city stands a castle in which the leading family lives. See political structure for more information.

Avestia:
City of Trade
Avestia is the youngest city of Ersenai and is founded after Koningsberg. It is the smallest city from Ersenai and part of the province of Eckkenai. It is the only city that isn’t a main city. Actually it is not an official city like the others, however its size and importance makes it a city.

Avestia is also a consequence of founding of Koningsberg. Thanks to the foundation was Koningsbergriver created. Not building a city at this location would be dumb. Before this river, you had only the Aeole , which is a small river with not much importance for this area.
It is located in the north-west of Ersenai. It lays against the Koningsbergriver (river coming from Koningsberg) and the sea.

Avestia is built like Koningsberg, but much smaller. The city counts 75.000 people living here and it is growing real fast because it is the mainport (mainport is a dutch word, that does not have an English meaning. A mainport is an important place for the economy of a region) of Ersenai. Avestia has the biggest harbour of Ersenai. Most of the products are exported to Koningsberg. This most important export products are Potatoes and Maize. Ersenai is the greatest supplier of Koningsberg for this products. 80% of the exported products to Koningsberg travel via this city.

The architecture in this city is the same as in the other cities, however the way the city is build shows more comparison with Koningsberg.

The mayor of the city is the landlord of the surrounding area.

In Avestia is not a University or a Military base. And there is not much nobility in this city. The landlord and his family are the highest noble family in the area. Most of the rich people in the city are bourgeoisie. They are responsible for the trading and export in this cities. Most of these families are representatives of the Noble families in Ersenai.

Mersetai:
City of power

Mersetai is the capitol and the biggest city of Ersenai.The crown is located here as well. Mersetai is the smallest province and is just like other provinces involved in the political games. Also the military headquarters is located in the city. A part of it is in the palace. In this part is the highest level in the chain of command located and the nobles are trained here. In the part of the HQ outside the palace lives the normal army.

The city of Mersetai contains 250.000 citizens. Of which is 3% members of noble family. In this city are also ambassadors of other counties and duchies in Ersenai.

The city of Mersetai has a small education centre, which is not really important and most of the time is it attended by the bourgeoisie (the not really smart ones).

Mersetai is located where the river from border with Meraley split up in the Aeole and in the animcjus


In the city is a small harbour which is most of the time used for transport of humans and a some military purposes. Most of the food is coming from the surrounding areas and is only imported by land. There is not much trade in this city.

In the city is a hospital, which is just like the hospitals in other cities capable of training their own staff. Most of the people go to the local doctor and not to the hospitals because they cannot afford a hospital visit. So the patients in the hospitals are mostly members of the highest classes.


The old city walls, made out of stone, are no longer the borders of the city. The city growth out the walls. It is still used by the guards and army. So the wall is the first an biggest defence of the city and the castle and the most important one. When the city would be under attack, everything outside the wall is unprotected and will be just an obstacle which reduces the speed of the attackers.



Omensis:
City of knowlegde

Omensis is the city of knowledge. It has a prestigious university, and the only one in Avaren, which is specialised in all kinds of sciences. All over Avaren are people coming to learn things or to research here. It is one of the bigger university’s in Avaren. It is actually a little city in Omensis. The university has its own protection detail, stores and even a hospital. It is independent from the ruler of Eckkenai.
It has not been always that way. Before the fall of the Eckkenburg-house it was connected to the family and city and it didn’t need protection against the city itself.

Omensis is the capitol of Eckkenai. Eckkenai is the province named after the Eckkenburg family. After the fall of the Eckkenburg house some bad things happened in Omensis. The city, except the university, became ruins. The beautiful city Omensis lost its image and the university did start losing it too. The counsel of Ersenai were unable to find a strong family for ruling the city again. All the families they gave a chance, were too corrupt. Outside the city at the country side, the people didn’t notice that struggling in the city much. Those folks are able to care for themselves. But the city is needed a strong ruler.

More thieves came to the city, cause there wasn’t any protection anymore . So the university decided after a couple of decades to became a special place in the county. The rulers of Eckkenai didn’t agree on that, however the counsel and especially the king liked the idea.

The Omensis inhabitants number is unknown. It should be a 150000 people according the papers, but nobody knows it for sure. It could be a 50000 more or less. The university counts a 7000 people.

Omensis has a huge castle, outside the city. It was built centuries ago. And till the disappearance of the Eckkenburg’s it was active place. The castle has his own little village for the staff. Barracks for the army and lot’s more. Nowadays it is not used anymore. The ruler lives in the city and the castle is for bidden for everybody, except members of the Eckkenburg family and the King.

The council of Ersenai has still the hope, that once the Eckkenburg family will return or another strong houses will raise with the purpose to rule the once mighty capitol of Eckkenai.


University of Omensis
After the founding of Omensis, the house of Eckkenburg wanted to have a place where all knowledge came together. The other members of the counsel thought it was a good idea. Because when one province had a university they could send some smartasses to their, gather knowledge and use it in their games. Also the did understand the thoughts of the Eckkenburg family. Bringing a lot of smart people together would greaten the chance of discoveries. So the Eckkenburg house started the building of the university. And it became larger and larger in the next years. A lot of knowledge was written up. Giant libraries where created and so on. Dangerous knowledge was taken out of the library and moved to the Eckkenburg castle.

"Culture and general history" is quite a big subject. I suggest you split it up further, just like you've done with the other subjects.

I will do that indeed, but I am on this moment not able to split them further than history and culture.

That's okay, just be sure to split it up further as you move towards it. Because culture is one hell of a topic.

In the spoilers is some information about the city Avestia, names of the other cities. You will find it yourself.

On this moment their is still no flag. And i am busy with the map. On this map you can find the locations of the cities, rivers and provinces.

Later on i will create a map of each provinces and the districts in it.

All of this maps are sketches, but they will be posted later on. The map of Ersenai will be posted for next friday




NB: This information can be changed/expanded without notifying it

Looks good Duck! Just for verification. Ersenai does already have a flag.. the description you got send with the information of Ersenai.. And I do already know the geopgraphical place of Avestia.. but you didn't describe it. Maybe you could do that in your info? It's maybe a little bit double, when people have the map of Ersenai. But then people have an idea where the city's lie, without searching them on the map.

I know Ersenai has already a flag. But I can not show you the flag on this moment, so that is why I said it.

And yes, I guess you already know the location of Avestia. I will give it a description.

Alright, here is a first sketch of the map of Ersenai.

It is a bit delayed, bit better late than never. I will try to make a total digital version of it. I also have added the location of Avestia.

after a couple of months, I finally have something new for you. It is not totally finished, but almost. At this very moment of writing I did not edit the first post.

If you have any critics at all, please post them :)

Looks fine! Good work, Duck. It's not a lot, but it's giving you a solid basis and that's more important as all the information you could give.

The biggest University will be in Nicj, keep that in mind please :) Wubbles is working on that, and I don't know a lot of it.

Uh you have different provinces, don't you? Oh I see (Scrolled back to picture :V) Yes fine. Yes Yes Yes..

alright uh no comment furthermore at this moment.

Keep on working :D

I appriciate the work, Duck! I'm going to double check it to make corrections so the article will be easier to read. There's quite a bit of erratic sentence-building.

There's also something I'd like to point out. Not only to you, but to everyone who is or is planning on working on a province. Calm down with the whole knowledge and university stuff. I know science is cool and knowledge is awesome, but we have to keep it in check in favor of realism. If every province were to have one or more universities, we would end up having more universities in Avaren than there are in current-day Europe. Which is rather silly, considering Avaren isn't even half the size of Europe in surface and way smaller in terms of population.

Your claim that Omensis was one of the biggest universities in Avaren made me flinch quite a bit, to be honest. Now, I'm really quite sure you used Oxford as your example for Omensis and I think that's okay, but you have to keep in mind that you can't just assume things like "oh, I think I'll place an university here." Universities are rather exceptional facilities in 632 A.D. and something like Oxford even more so. There has to be a reason that there is an university there. So I suggest you work on a more detailed version of the founding of the university so we can be certain that it isn't there just because you wanted one.
Great ideas are a good thing, but I'd prefer to see them backed up by solid foundations.
