WIP - Bruggs Landing - The Batavic- Kingdoms Capital
Today I want to introduce you the City of Bruggs Landing.
Itīs located at the north west shores of the continent, where once, at the Ages of The White Lords, some thousand Elves founded their City of Thruniel. They formed a circular City with the white Palace in itīs middle. The City was build in white stones and wood and it was the Elves who build the surrounding breakwater and later attached a stony wall of 10 meters height around their city to protect it from the sea and from attackers.
At the End of The Age of the White Lords, The City of Thruniel was invaded by the Black Lords from the North. The Army of the Black Lords neraly bulldozed the city except the Great Phare of Thruniel and some houses near the Palace. From then on they use the Phare as a sea-sign for their Brutal Hordes navies without rebuilding the City.Lord Khrakk da Korth tried to extinguish the white Flame of Thruniel but never managed to because this flame is once given by the Gods of Elves and only the God himsels was capable to sweep it.
Some thousand years later - The Age of the Black Lords was over for some centuries - the first humans from the west, the great Fleet of Jon Batava arrived at the fjordish shores of the continent after a journey of half a year.some 40 Ships were following the coasts northwards, when they were atrracted by an intensive light from the Phare of Thruniel. Jon Batave arrives at Thruniel and so the humans captured the old city and call it Bruggs Landing. In the next decades, the City was rebuild in a more human way, with wooden houses and the rebuilding of the some Elven homes. After hundred yeras, Jon Batava was long gone, Bruggs landing was one of the biggest and most importnant human cities in the north west and became the Capital of the growing Batavic Kingdom with the Kings Palace in the center of Bruggs Landing, where once the Elven Lord ruled the City.
Today Bruggs Landing is a proud City again, with strong walls and some 40.000 inhabitants, the Kingdoms Capital with great shipyards and mostly stony houses of rich inhabitants. Even some of the old Elves returned to Bruggs Landig and their old Phare. Bruggs Landing is the main port of the Kingdom and even the Capital of the strong Batavic Navy. In the First Great Human War, some hundred ships found their secure harbour in Bruggs Landing, protected behind the great breakwater, until they sail away into war. In this time, bruggs landing offers home for about 10.000 troops and about 20.000 additional inhabitants. Bruggs Landing was never invaded again after the invasion ot the Black Lords and today itīs one of the most important an richest Cities of the United Kingdoms, with the largest amount of Elves in all of the Cities in the United Kingdoms. That all under the never expiring flames of Thruniels Phare, even when Bruggs Landing never reaches Thruniels elvic daintiness

That looks pretty incredible! What program are you going to use to digitize the image?
Thank you Kobell, well, first i will do the basics in Auto CAD, then with illustrator and the final map will be composed in photoshop, i think. I am planning a city map with an underlayed regional overview.
