District Zone 2 of Star Lake

By:

All the streets in zone 2 are paved with a smooth water stone pulled form the shore of the lake. Some of the nicer houses have gutters to wash the refuse from the streets down to the harbor, but the lower houses have no such luck at having a free service such as this to clean their streets.

Houses vary from size to size, the smaller houses are closer to the warehouse and waterfront districts in zone 1. With the nicer and much larger houses being toward the better districts of zone 3. These usually house richer merchants or guild officials.

Residential District - This houses all of the permanent homes of those that live here. Between the residence that work in the businesses or faculty that work in the academy that have homes outside of the school. This district is by far the largest next to the area in which the academy sits on. Roads meander throughout the landscape with no real order, but all ending back in a central location where roads are marked easily to enter other districts. Most of the homes are of wood and a whitewash, but the more permanent residents tend to have nicer homes made of brick and elegant wood designs.

The exteriors are usually a white stucco, with some half-timbering (wooden beams embedded in the stucco, some for support others for looks. Other characteristics include high-pitched roofs (covered in slate), asymmetrical configurations, enclosed entryways, fireplaces with ornamented chimneys and chimney pots, and casement windows. This design is fairly fire resistant, easy to replicate, and used local materials.

Most buildings in this district are two story, semi-detached town home affairs, and they are usually longer than they are wide. This long and narrow town home design allows the largest number of houses to fill in along a street. There is seldom an alley way between the buildings big enough to use. The second story usually extends beyond the first, allowing for enclosed or covered entries in front and back. There is normally a tiny yard associated with the back of the house. The back of a house faces the back of another house. If there is a business in the building (which is usually the case), the business is downstairs, while the family and workers live upstairs.

The roads here are also slanted to flow water to the center of the road. There are under channels in the center of the roads, covered by square masonry pieces with short gaps between them. Water flows into the center, down the gaps and into the under channel. Smaller streets flow into the under channels of larger streets, and so on. Houses are connected to this system by their own underchannels.

Temple District - This is a small district divided into eight parts. Each section devoted to one of the eight Gods of Hewdamia. A wide boulevard stretches the entire length of this district with large flat slate stone for paving. Each temple is large enough to be modest yet they do not try to outdo the other temples in appearance. They all look nearly identical with the exception of the reliefs in front, and the interior.

Again, what I expect from one of your posts.

I do have a question, is there apartments or rooms for rent in this area? Inns would be good for temporary, but if you are looking for longer term solutions...

I actually have been setting up a place for the players in a renting environment so yes there are businesses that will rent out residents. I was thinking of a business or two that rents apartments, homes, etc... A medieval real estate agent of sorts.

Decent location, but needs some drama to make it shine!

Most of this is just fluff, but I will look into it.

A flower possibly in the plains or maybe all over that is always tilted towards a certain place. Sunflowers. Could possibly follow the sun or could be forever facing a certain position because of something that happened, either the air forcing it that way and it staying, the fire was so strong that the flowers faced away from it. It could be that in one spot a large fire was made or a fire war where many fire elementals were destroyed by the True Gods and radiating out from that point all of this flower is facing away from it so no matter where you are you always know where this place is by seeing which way the flower is facing away from.
