    Post Hoven (Hóven)

    Hoven, say Hóven, is my second largest city on the moment. The shape is based at the city of Tampere (Tammerfors) which is in Finland. I roughly calculated the inhabitants, and I came to +- 40.000

    Wow, must have taken a lot of work. Impressive

    Some questions out of curiosity:

    - Do I see a stadium or circus to the north?
    - Why are most of the docks located on an island?

    Sweet...can't really say much until ya get further along but man, you can really draw a nice city.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Yes it is a circus, look at rome you'll find one there too.
    Because it's a military island, and mariniers are stationed there.

    Ah ok.
    I thought that many docks meant lots of trade going on there and the merchants in that case probably would have wanted a land connection (otherwise goods would still need to be ferried to the land).

    So did you create your own alphabet as well for your cities? As I can see two names on your map.

    Oh, you don't want to know. I have created my own language: Maraxxian. Also, my land is called Maraxxia. I also have created a symbol alphabet. It is a very simple to learn language, though the words of it look very difficult. If you say something you want me to translate, just say it.

    If that's water / sea in the north and south... one might expect canals to connect the two. It's a bit hard to tell whether there are any. If there are none, consider adding some.

    That's a thing I left with purpose, because the city would become too small.
