Project Realm. Sculpting the World, Part 27

Where the last entry was longer than expected this one is considerably shorter than usual. Especially in the flora and fauna department there was hardly anything to describe, but since Spearwall is in a constant state of warfare that’s not all that surprising. It makes for a shorter and perhaps more monotone description, but when we get to the social and cultural parts of Project Realm there should be more than enough material to go into more detail!


Sculpting the World

5.2. Spearwall
Map of the Realm (Colonies of Men-Spearwall Highlighted)

Landscape:
Over 1,000 km from North-East to South-West and around 730 km from North to South Spearwall has long been the colonists’ primary front in the war effort against the Dark Elves. The terrain is mainly rocky, with the areas near the coast being flat, while the inland parts have higher elevation and hills rich with iron. A number of mining and smithing towns are located in and near the hills and fishing towns can be found along the Western coast. All towns are connected to Spearwall’s main port in the South-West. On the highest hills a long wall of watchtowers, erected and manned by the colonial forces, runs straight across the island, spanning from the South-Westernmost to the North-Easternmost coast. East of the wall lies the front of the Dark Elf military, with a large number of military encampments scattered across the land and connected by two small ports.

Climate: Like the other colonies Spearwall has a dry summer oceanic climate with warm, dry summers, cold, wet winters and only a few instances of extreme peaks and lows throughout the year. Especially in the Southern part, however, temperatures are considerably lower than in the rest of the region, particularly during winters. This is also the case with precipitation. Rain and snowfall are far more common in Southern Spearwall than anywhere else in the colonies.

Flora & Fauna: On the rocky barren land of Spearwall very little can grow. Traces have been found indicating small forests once grew along the Northern and Western coast, but these forests have long since disappeared following both destruction from battle and extensive use of their resources by the island’s colonial towns to aid the war effort.

Animal life is also scarce. The seas still contain fish in abundance and in the hills on the Northernmost coast seabirds nest, feeding on the fish. Otherwise the only animals are those brought by the warring factions: messenger birds, war hounds, and mules to transport people and resources across the island.

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
