Map and Story Block 1

Good evening everyone,

Heleen (http://on-creating-games.blogspot.com/) and I are beginning a series of posts developing a world a 5 mile square block at a time. Heleen provides the initial inspiration. I draw a map and then Heleen will build a story of the world based on the map. Without further adieu, we bring you:

Block 1

Scale: 1 square = 1/2 mile

The Sparkling River runs through the town of Westshire and provides a variety of goods for its denizens.  Westshire isn’t large by any stretch of the imagination, though they do have their own church to the god of Time.  The area surrounding Westshire is filled with mostly farmers.  Westshire has a couple of docks that provide a place for travelers on river boats to make a pit stop. The docks are also used to bring the extra produce to bigger towns farther down the Sparkling River.

Next Block: Down the Sparkling River.
