    Default City of Maldorra

    Right, long time no post. Just started this today, a map of the capital city in the fantasy series I'm working on (first book is almost done, wheee! I so excited).

    Anyways, Maldorra is the largest city on the entire continent and is quite a marvel of engineering (both magical and non-magical). Basically, there's this huge cliff that separates the upper and lower portions of the province it is set in. The city is at the base of the cliff, and cut into the stone at the top of the cliff are these huge cisterns. There is a combination aqueduct/waterway that feeds into the cisterns and allows for boat traffic starting from up in a mountain range several hundred kilometers away (when these people build things, they build them big). There are canal locks that cut through and divide the largest of the cisterns in half (so there's technically four of them), and a large canal that encircles the main portions of the city, with another canal lock and near sea level canal leading away from the city to a bay several miles away. The water collected is use for a large number of things, from plumbing in the city to providing irrigation and drinking water to farmers around the city for miles.

    So right now I have the positioning for the cisterns and canals. Working on building placement right now.
